Real Fake Flowers

 Planter outside a local nursery #1 last Friday

Blooms are so scarce here right now and I am so desperate for colour that I have taken to photographing faux flowers.

 Planter  #2

Well, they are cheerful, aren't they?

And the twigs are real.

I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend!

lovely bright colors and my mother would not only have loved these she would have wanted them

Kate said...

I recently read an article that praised fake flowers, indicating that they are far superior to those of the past and are no longer considered tacky. Nothing tacky about these flowers!

Jenny said...

Indomitable Canadians - We will have our spring colour no matter what nature throws at us! Very cheery.

William Kendall said...

Sooner or later the real flowers will show themselves!

Your real fake flowers are much prettier than the ones in the garden next door. The lady who lives there has fake flowers stuck into the ground year round. Needless to say, the flowers fade and look pretty strange blooming above the snow in the winter. It is really unusual considering how lovely the building is, but, then, to each his/her own!

i love that even the nursery uses fakes. :)

Good for you! It's pretty bleak and watery around here, too.

Well you are right--they are cheerful enough. But wait----it will happen.
It is 32F here right now but is supposed to warm up to about 69F I'll take it. The sun just came over the hill

Wonderfully colorful even if the flowers are not real

Judy said...

Those are pretty nice ones. I can remember when fake flowers were made of plastic and they were not pretty like these are.

:-) Not long to go now for the real thing!

I like the sound of that! So pretty!

Marie said...

I really dislike fake flowers outdoors, but I SOOOO understand the need to color in a drab world! May you have real flowers soon! Yes, they are cheerful. We have to get our cheer where we can! :-)

Revrunner said...

Sometimes you have to touch them to be sure or I do anyway.

Roan said...

If you hadn't said they were feaux, I would have thought they were real. We're kind of in a bind for the real thing, too. Although I did see some daffodils in the neighbors yard.

RedPat said...

I'm craving colour too so this look great to me, EG!

Pamela Gordon said...

They are cheerful and those twigs might just start to sprout leaves if there is wet soil in the planters. :)

Lisa Gordon said...

Your real fake flowers are really very pretty! :-)

Jen said...

They are beautiful and would have fooled me.

Kathy said...

You're funny!

Pat Tillett said...

They are colorful, that's for sure. You will be swimming in the real things soon enough. I hope!

Randy said...

When you need an emergency pop of color.

Michelle said...

Nice to see that bright color!

Jack said...

If you promise not to tell anyone . . . I have quite a few silk plants in both Florida and Connecticut. Given that I am not in either place year-round, live plants would die. So, I have got very lifelike plants, to make the place more comfortable. These days, you can get very lifelike plants. Of course, I do buy seasonal plants like poinsettia and tulips and now Easter lilies, and I regularly buy cut flowers.

They may be fake but they sure look pretty good to me.

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! Even though the flowers are fake they are bright and pretty.

Stephanie said...

Nice bright colors and they do look almost real.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

They are pretty. Maybe I'll have to plant some of them if we don't get warm weather soon.

llandudnopictures said...

Fake or not, they certainly brighten things up!

Icy BC said...

They are pretty!

I know how you feel about seeing colors. I did the same thing with faux flowers!

see you there! said...

For some reason the first one would have fooled me but not the others, maybe the color? I can see why people put them out in need for a bit of bright color.
