Today's Wonder of the World is...Concrete Yard Art!
Okay, so it's a little weird, but who could drive by a pasty white Grizzly bear rising out of a bush and not want to stop in for a closer look?
Woo hoo for strange lawn art!
I love roadside oddities, so when we passed through Ware Shoals, South Carolina, on the way to the Greenwood flower festival last weekend and saw this...
I made Todd pull over.
He had to! How could we pass by a giant rooster, an albino grizzly, and a lighthouse, all on the same block? We did it for the children.
And for me.
Ah say, it's Foghorn Leghorn!
And since it's almost America's birthday, say hello to this stony faced Lady Liberty. It looks like she needs some attention. She just doesn't look well to me. Maybe the heat was getting to her.
At least she didn't have to wear woolen cement pants, like this pint sized Confederate soldier.
The statues were wonderfully weird enough, but I found their arrangement delightfully odd as well.
Like this horse guarding the Ten Commandments.
Do people like yard art where you live? Flamingos? Geese in dresses? Frogs with umbrellas?
How about deer?

Or maybe a bright pink pig!

I'd put a pink pig in my yard when...

You know what I'm saying?
Oh, sorry Chef Pig. You know I love you.
Even if I keep you in the backyard where no one else can enjoy your piggy loveliness.
Here, let's distract ourselves with Foghorn Leghorn! Cartoon sized!
Have a wonder-full Wednesday, y'all!
