BORN GREEN

I am constantly amazed by the sundry things people put in their front yards. I spotted this rather unusual looking topiary while taking a ride in the country. It appears to be a rabbit with some sort of a cowboy Sponge Bob thing on his back. I have no idea of the significance or meaning or anything, for that matter, of it. If anyone has any insight, it would be greatly appreciated. It certainly pays to have a camera with you since you never know what is around the next bend.

  1. Gosh: Where do you find such pictures? I guess it is great that people exercise such individuality. It sure beats seeing a Walmart.

  2. Well, I don't get it either, but it's cute. Not sure I'd want it in my front yard, but it's an eye-catcher!!

  3. You are right---never leave home with the mighty camers. Good advice. As to the yard art--it was put there for you to marvel at and question. MB

  7. From your summer series, all I can say is that Michigan is a strange place. We people from Ontario have always known that.

  9. Nice catch, BS! Some people are a little nutty...but, it reminds me a bit of Disney...maybe that's where they got the idea...

  10. When I lived in Germany, one would read in the newspapers about feuds between neighbors concerning garden gnomes--similar to the Seven Dwarfs. Well, I cannot imagine what would happen if this showed up in a well-heeled neighborhood where dwarfs are a point of contention. Anyhow . . . it's witty.

  11. Funny .. no idea what this means .. is there a sports team it might be tied into? Its certainly a more green way to express/decorate than all those holiday lights

  12. Looks like the cowboy Sponge Bob has his lariat ready to wrangle maybe another topiary? This is a great shot. You never know what you are going to see.

  18. I suspect the gardener might have gone 'round the bend' with this one. Still, it does make you smile.

  20. A gardener with a sense of humour, I suspect. At least, I HOPE it's not meant to be serious.
