Edna's lawn art

Edna: While Margie is away this afternoon at Ladies' Bible study, I thought I'd finish up a project I've been working on. This is our front yard, but I think it looks kind of plain and in need of sprucing up.

Maybe I'll start with a tasteful birdbath.

And you know, Margie always says that lawn gnomes give her the heebie-jeebies, but I bet she'll change her mind once she sees how cute this one is.

And you can't have a decent front lawn without a couple of flamingos.

Or maybe just a few more. Doesn't that brighten the place up?

Oh my, I think Margie's going to be so surprised when she gets home!

Lovely, I put out a flock of Pink Flamingos on spring. The neighbors put their home up for sale, I didn't like them anyways.

Shinade said...

Oh I love it. The flamingos definitely added just that special touch!!:-)

Designing Hilary said...

Now all you need to do is add a bunch of beaded necklaces to drape around the flamingos!

You're too funny! A sea of flamingos is exactly what everyone needs. Maybe you'll start a new trend :0)
Thanks for making me smile this morning!

Margie: It's no surprise, Edna, that you're a moron! Welcome, folks, to Edna's Redneck City. Why don't you add a few rusty cars, nimcompoop?

I'm going to buy necklaces to wrap around your scrawny neck. When I get through with you, Edna, you'll be wishing you were a gnome!

I have a friend whose neighbor has the pink flamingos in their yard. She hates them! So on the eve of her 30th bday I put 30 pink flamingos in her front yard and dressed two of them up like she and her hubby!

Oh that is the most adorable post I have seen - what fun. Personally I love famingos and I would have them if I could.

tahtimbo said...

My wife would SO do this. We already have 2 Pink Flamingos in our front yard and she is threatening to get more:)

Lux said...

I think it looks perfect! She's sure to love it. :)

capybara said...

Love the pink flamingoes, not so sure about the Gnomes though. Im will cut your lawn for you if you like! LOL

Techie Guy said...

Love the flock of flamingos. When I used to play the Sims, I used to put flamingos all over the front yard. My wife would be annoyed by all the flamingos.

Linda said...

I do not think you have enough of the flammingos.... you need more and really get all of the attention!

Rebecca said...

ROFL!!

I think you may have one flamingo too many, but other than that, it's great!

Where's your little jockey??

Cookie Sunshine said...

Oh, this is just too much fun. You have to have those pink flamingos. Great work!

Leslie said...

I love the flock of flamingo's! Why have one, dont ya know more is better :P

gLoR!e said...

serenity lawn is really my love with i think at least 3-5 flamingos!m dreaming again!:) and m back again.. i miss you both!:)

dj said...

We love flamingos in Florida!

Rich said...

Ha ha ha. Lovely!

The Hawg said...

Come on, you can do better than that. More flamingos!

Margie and Edna said...

Edna: Thank you all for the nice comments, I knew everyone would love our new lawn! Just ignore my crabby sister, she wouldn't know good decorating if it bit her on her tushie.

rebecca, there's no jockey because I simply had to draw the line somewhere. A lady knows when to have just the right amount of restraint when decorating, don't you agree?

capybara, what a nice young man you are to offer to cut our lawn! We might just take you up on that one of these days. You'd have to promise to put all of the lawn ornaments back in the right place, though.

Mr. The Hawg, if you bring over some more flamingos, we'd be delighted if you'd put them out in the yard. :D

Grampy said...

Margie doesn't seem to be happy. I think she might just be a little scared of the Gnome. All you are missing is a couple of Gargoyles to protect the door entrance.
Have Fun.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Okay first, Margie at Bible Study? More like Margie at Margiedales study. And, unless you're living in Vegas, the flamingos need to go. Have you been drinking that special tea gain?

P.L. Frederick said...

More gnomes!
