Pink Flamingos?

Several mornings ago, I awoke to my husband asking me if I had added plastic pink Flamingos to my garden. Being only half awake, my answer was "What pink Flamingos?" Getting out of bed, I went to the window to see what my husband was talking about. From my second floor bedroom window, I can see the entire garden. To my surprise, I had pink Flamingos throughout the garden. Putting on my bathrobe, I went out with the camera to take a photo of my new garden decorations. I wasn't sure who was playing the trick on me until I looked at the photo I had taken. A sunbeam came directly down on one of the pink Flamingos. Now I was really curious where the pink Flamingos really came from. After walking the garden, I found that I had a total of five plastic Flamingos hidden in the garden. As the day went on, I found that my oldest son had been out the night before putting the Flamingos in my garden as a joke. I now have added the Flamingos in an outlet at the river's edge. We call it "Flamingo Cove" for all the boaters on the river to enjoy.


Happy Gardening!
