my patriotic hoo ha

i finally got my patriotic hoo ha put out around the house. i've always loved decorating .....any excuse to tacky up my yard......i'm there! since i don't have my bottle trees full yet i dug out some old plastic christmas balls and spray painted them red and white to fill up the trees. i unearthed the red and blue bowling balls from underneath the hydrangeas to add another splash of color.
mr stumpyman refused to play along this year but i did talk him into wearing his hat.

Looks great! I still haven't gotten my decorations up. I have been to busy with gardening! Gotta do that tomorrow! The bottle trees look great with the Christmas ornaments!!!
