Faux Plants

I don't know about you chicks and certainly don't speak for most people but I love faux plants. They don't die, rarely fade out now and are easy to maintain and provide an attractive punch to a front garage. Trust me, we've tried several little color spots in these pots but to no avail. They just sat there with dirt in them trying to look unashamed but hopeful. I felt pity for them and tried to find some 3-ball elegant topiaries, even tried to steal some from Stacy (friend), but that wouldn't work as I'm too honest, and trying to find them at a reasonable price was not working either. SHE got 4 of them at WM at a closeout price of $3.00 each!!! Am I frosted or what? So I had to spend $10.00 a piece on these three "hosta" type plants for the front of the garage. But they definitely do punch up the garage/front of my home.

  1. Mornin sweet Connie,

    I luv your plants. They do add a wee bit of a punch and a lovely splash of color. I luv the fact that I can't "KILL" fake plants. They rock!

    Love & Prayers,
    Ronda

  2. Connie girlfriend, I love faux plants in certain places, from just a little distance, you can't tell the difference. Hubby so hates them, I tell him he's the yardman, I am the decorator..LOL

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with faux plants. Love, because I kill real plants. Hate, because they get dusty.

  6. I have nothing against faux plants. I have had them on my front stoop for years. I gets no sun at all and I would forget to water them in the front of our home. Your picture is great and those plants are great.
