A Clever Disguise
























Yesterday we drove past a house that had these pretty tulips lining the walkway, and we stopped for me to take a picture of it. But when we got much closer, I saw that they were not really tulips, but cleverly disguised solar lights! And farther back in the yard, you can see they had a row of wooden butterflies. So nothing in the yard was really what it seemed to be. To see disguises even more clever than this than this , CLICK HERE.

my mother would have loved these. she was into all things fake flowers. once in the dead of winter we went to visit and I looked out her kitchen window and the azalea bush was glowing with wonderful pink flowers. I said MOTHER what did you do? she said she found all those flowers at a garage sale for only one dollar, so she wired each one on the bush. she would truly love these tulips

Hi Ginny, There's nothing I despise more than FAKE FLOWERS. But--since they are solar lights, I guess that is okay. But--I'd never choose them. I think they look cheap.

There's a yard here in the Glade where the people have fake flowers in their flowerbeds... GADS--they are no horrible.... Sorry--just my humble (not so humble) opinion... ha

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Ah, well. I've known people who varnished the rocks they had in their garden, too. Nature can always be improved upon in some folks minds.
I don't think I'd ever buy those solar lights, either. We've never seen any that held any bright after midnight.

I wonder what they look like at night...you'll have to go back and take a picture at dusk ;-) To each his own, right? You are one very observant gal and always something to fun to think about here on your blog! Hope you had a great day!

False tulips seems to be popular. I don't know if you remember but I had some a while back too. But those were made of wood and not disguising any lights.

Well, I guess it take all kinds. It's interesting that they've disguised the solar lights in these ways. I'm glad you stopped to take a picture of the tulips.

That is a cute way to hide the solar lights but I'm not sure if I would put them in my garden. They would look interesting at night however.

The tulips certainly don't look real, but I bet at night they are pretty! One just can't improve on God's creations! But each is entitled to his or her own opinion!
