I'm getting 10 to spruce up the veggie garden a bit:)
I have the lawn geese in front, and get positive comments on them from time to time. At least the flamingoes don't need to be dressed.

Sounds like a great idea, that should to make weeding the vegetable garden a lot more fun this summer!

"at least the flamingos don't need to be dressed"
Funny, I never thought about that :)

Well, have fun, Lucille.

I think my husband got rid of my flamingos. I'd like to find them and paint or mosaic.
Have fun!

Flamingos would definitely make gardening more fun I would think! They're bound to bring a smile.

oriental trading has them with wings that turn in the wind, that may help to keep critters out too....

I sort of remember one project from a few years ago that made use of pink flamingoes. The flamingoes were painted blue and wearing sun glasses... the Blues Brothers? I'll have to see if I can find the link. If not, I bet Marlene remembers them. Very fun!

Found them! It was Sally Ann and the Blues Brothers by Purplemoon.

THAT is a work of art! Thank you for posting.
Yes the flamingoes (and the geese in front) make me smile plus provide some color before I have flowers/vegetables in the garden.

A few years back there was an "explosion" of unique flamingos on here. There was army ones, beaded ones zebra's and skeletons and too many to mention. Can't remember who did them but they were very interesting and done so well.

RE: Pink Flamingoes

I remember that. Lots of people made them. Toomuchglass for one I think. It was around the same time as the blues brothers. I loved them!

I seem to 'kill' every thread that I reply to. Sorry folks, don't know what I am doing wrong.

A couple of my flamingoes have glasses and plastic rain hats. They are quite the sight.

I bought 2 boxes with 2 in each box a couple of years ago when they were on sale. I need to get them out and dress them up. Thanks for reminding me. I have been reorganizing my shed getting ready for spring and I need to get those out the boxes.
Enjoy spring in your neck of the woods.

Just a comment ... The prices on pink flamingos seems to have sky rocketed.

RE: Pink Flamingoes

Yes, I think they were $9 at Lowes last week. When I was contemplating them my husband grabbed me and rushed to another area. I think he was afraid one might jump into the buggy and follow us home.

Bought the flamingo whirlygigs at dollar store, same as oriental trading. That is what spinning things are called. Left them out all winter, faded, but they were fun to watch spin with the snow all around them. They just make you smile
