Gorgeous things, ain't they? Maybe this is the year I have to give in to an ugly plastic greenhouse & just get some...

So what was the connection between Magritte and these particular plants?

The frames & the bowler hat? Have no doubt that the exhibitor knew just what he was up to with the frames - all the windows, doors, mirrors in Magritte with the multiple perspectives - the frame strongly conditions the eye to expect 2D but when you look at the framed auriculas, the black cloth makes them seem far deeper than that are, so the eye falls into them for a moment, as you would into a Magritte, past the clearly foregrounded figure... sort of thing.
The bowler was much more prominent than I've made it in this shot as well.
