A bit of fun for Today's flowers...

First a bit of fun for Today's Flower...
Recently we were in Shipshewana and one morh we walked all around this one shopping place.  It was not a building center but had all kinds of stuff for the yard and patios.  I just have to include some of their 'flowers.'
I don't think they equal the beauty of real flowers, but I do think they are cute.
I am not sure I would ever want any...maybe if I lived someplace flowers didn't grow or where I couldn't plant any.

Now, for some shots of real flowers:
We passed though some little town that had this hanging baskets,

and at ever corner a mound of the same petunias.  Aren't they glorious!

I'm so impressed Rose, how did you do this? I sound so unaware but I love that you have copied it. Thank you so much for sharing with Today's Flowers. I love your flowers, the real and non real. Have a great weekend :)

Those are darling little metal flowers. - I've seen a few people here in town who decorate their beds with similar flowers. Yes the real thing is much better but they are still quite cute.

Very pretty hanging baskets and mounds of colorful petunias. We have hanging baskets in our downtown area during the summer and I love how pretty they look.
