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!
