Oddities Part ll

 I just couldn't resist posting some more strange decoration sightings. Remember the cow I posted earlier?

Well, we came across another cow!

And a Peacock!

And this very tiny bike lodged in a bare tree.

Peacocks sweep the fairies' rooms;
They use their folded tails for brooms;
But fairy dust is brighter far
Than any mortal colours are;
And all about their tails it clings
In strange designs of rounds and rings;
And that is why they strut about
And proudly spread their feathers out.
~Rose Fyleman

Those are some interesting decorations. I think the second cow is rather cute. I love the poem about the peacock.

Hi Ginny! Those are odd, but still cute!

Love the poem. And will think of those words when I see a peacock again.

That poem really nailed the peacock description.
I have to admit I think some of these decorations are weird for Christmas but fun all the same.
I wonder what the story was about the small bike in the tree?
Have a good day Ginny.

Another fun share! I tried to comment on this last night on my iPAD, but there are times it won't let me publish. I haven't figured that one out yet. I wish I was more tech savvy. Anyhow did enjoy seeing these and reading the poem. Thanks again Ginny!

The peacock is pretty (so unusual for a Christmas decoration though). I'm not sure I get the tricycle in the tree. Very odd indeed.
