Photohunters: Artificial

Photobucket

I am going to take a circuitous journey to the artificial photohunters theme this week.

Photobucket

My Aunt was hosting one of the suppers for a recent family reuion, at her newly renovated house in the NC mountains.

Photobucket

I was at least as interested in her garden as I was in the inside, being a lover of flowers and nature in general.

Photobucket

When I made my way inside after admiring the garden, I was struck by the fabulous flower arrangements.

Photobucket

I complimented my Aunt on the beautiful sunflowers when she pointed out to me that they were artificial.

Love the garden and from the looks of it, so do the birds with that little tucked away birdbath! I've never seen artificial sunflowers!

LOL! I was going that route too, artificial flowers route, but never had time to dig in the archives. But I love the exterior shot of the cottage.

Enjoy the weekend.
