But my Garden Buddy approves of Pink Flamingos. She likes anything pink, actually. She comes over to help garden and now her parents have started a small garden for her at their house, too. I should give her a pink flamingo for Christmas.



One year we had pink flamingos instead of reindeer land in the front yard. Makes more sense, at least flamingo can fly.



But, the pink flamingos are frivolous decorations, they're not serious. For more proper decorations, there's a concrete pagoda out there and a big copper whale weather vane. Hmm, although come to think of it, though, the pagoda has become infested with flamingos. Guess they're pretty invasive.

Maybe more than one.
There's no such thing as too many pink flamingos, especially when you're as cute as she is.

Awesome! I have zombie flamingos that we put out for Halloween. I bought a pink metal flamingo for the yard, but somehow she ended up in my living room, where she's very happy and looks great.

I love rocks too...I am gradually filling my entire yard with rocks, as I find the right ones free on Craigslist and persuade hubby to haul them home for me.

I got this nice ceramic figure at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I really like her a lot.

I brought this with me when we moved from Georgia last October. It is very heavy, and I was sure the movers would break it, but she made it!

I too have the Bird Girl from the Midnight Garden of Good and Evil but I keep it inside by the fireplace to balance the fireplace poker set on the other side. I thought about putting it in the garden but decided I like it better inside and DH swears he would get a hernia if I asked him to take it outside.

I think everybody in Georgia has this statue in some form or another. We spent many happy vacations in Savannah during the 30+ years we lived in Georgia.

My flamingo flaps his wings and dips his head, and lights up! I love the tackiness of it.
