Oh my friends, there’s a battle going on here at my house and at times it can get ugly.
What fight is that you ask? The battle of Faux vs. Snow.
According to our calendar Spring is just around the corner. But somehow Old Man Winter didn’t get the memo.
It has been snowing all day again today. Not heavy, but still snow!
I decided that if I couldn’t have blooms outside that I would bring the faux in. Spring blossoms in an old cemetery basket I painted Old White. Speaking of cemetery, the faux flowers now days are so much better than they were back in the day of the plastic fake flowers.
I mean really if I had just posted these flowers and not told you that they were faux I think I could pass them off as being real spring blossoms.
Branches picked straight from my Cherry tree and Forsythia.
And aren’t my Ranunculus and Hydrangeas gorgeous?
More beautiful white blossoms. They smell just heavenly. Hee-hee!
Where are all of these beauties? Sitting on my fireplace hearth where I can get a whiff every time I walk by.
As vicious as this fight is, I am not throwing in the towel. Even if Old Man Winter fights dirty every now and then.
I mean look at this. He snuck inside and dusted my faux tulips with a bit of that white stuff. Sure it’s pretty and all. . .but enough is enough!
Try as he might. I think if we all band together he doesn’t stand a chance. Like it or not, he’ll have to step down and let Spring time take the stage!
I’m not sure who you are routing for, but for me it’s FAUX!
At least until the real flowers arrive.
