I am led to believe that in Dulmen,
Germany, there is a flower shop named 'Blumen Ecke'. [Sent in by Nigel McNeilly, who suspects that the humour may be lost on the owners.]
Footnote: Lana wrote: I am living in Germany and
I can vouch for it, 'Blumen Ecke' is true. Not only in Dulmen but
in almost any town in Germany you can see that name for flower shops, or
flower isles at supermarkets. In the German language 'Blumen Ecke'
simply means, "Flower Corner" thus: die Blume (noun, singular, female),
die Blumen (noun, plural, female) = the flowers. die Ecke (noun,
singular, female) = the corner.
