Sometimes an instance of bad taste can grab my attention as much as something pretty.
Recently, I was doing some shopping at one of my favourite local nurseries when I got distracted by some of the more outrageous garden ornaments on display.
Some of them are just mind-boggling! Who buys these things anyway?
I am a dog person, and I love my boys,
but I assure you there are no plastic shelties in my garden.
And if I ever did decide that a dog might add something to my garden,
I promise you that I would never pick one like this.
Look at this guy's tongue! And his eyes!
Does orange ever get any brighter?
I have enough trouble with the real thing, why the heck would I want a fake raccoon?
Or perhaps the fake raccoon is meant to scare off the real raccoons?
Is this rude or so rude that it is funny?
This guy can't keep his pants on.
Now that's an attractive view!
Somebody is having a bad day!
Actually, he is so grumpy he's kinda cute.
For those of you who missed my post on last fall's clearance sales and love the sport,
this hockey figure is still available.
Even at a discount $38.39 no one seems to want to see him on "home ice".
And speaking of last year's leftovers....
there is still a huge selection of plastic gnomes lining store shelves.
Fake deer anyone? I was shocked when I checked out the price tag. $599.99
Gosh, bad taste is expensive!
See no evil,
Hear no evil
Speak no evil!
Admirable sentiments, but chimps in a North American garden? Is that weird or is it just me?
Is there a gardening trend that I don't know about? Here is yet another garden chimpanzee.
This time he is playing golf!
I was trying to think of a funny caption, but his face is plenty funny enough.
He is yours for only $489.99!
And to go along with your golfing chimp, why not get this hole-in-one garden bench.
It even has a golf ball embedded in the seat back. Yours for $395.99!
When it comes to garden ornaments, what do you think qualifies as just plain old tacky?
