Letter: Taste transplant

Sir: Many thanks to Richard McClure for his most timely article about the floral display in the city of Bath (14June).

For some time now, family and friends have been trying to convince me that I have a serious problem which requires urgent treatment. I have been unable to understand their concern. However, your article showed me that I may well have a terminal case of bad taste.

You see, I really like the hanging baskets. They bring a smile to my face every time I am in Bath. They just look so cheerful!

I am now willing to admit that I have suffered a serious lapse of good taste and recognise the need for behaviour therapy so that I will be able to fully appreciate the tasteful geometric displays which will, no doubt, be angling for the tourists' attention next summer
