Pink in the garden!

I bet you thought this post would be a flower! Not this time....here's a pink flamingo.

One of my favorite Southern gardeners is Felder Rushing. This pink flamingo pic is from his website. He has lots of flamingos in his pictures of his gardens.



Here is a garden complete with flamingos that he grows in the back of his pick up truck!
His website is Welcome to Felder Rushing,net

If you have time, his radio shows are lots of fun to listen to. They are available on the
Mississippi Public Broadcasting Site. Even if you can't listen to the broadcasts, you will enjoy the pictures that go with each broadcast if you love gardening! He has some very unique garden art!

Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday. Please click on her link for more pink posts.

Diane, I loved this post about Felder. He is truly one of a kind and his radio show is very entertaining, especially the ones he and "Dr. Dirt" did together.

His talent is excelled only by his imagination ... Gotta love that pickup truck garden!

Becky said...

How cute is that. Now that is one way to make an old pickup look better lol. I wonder what Jeff Foxworthy would have to say about that. lol. I loved it!

I wish I could have done this project with my old little truck - it was hard to part with it. And I adore flamingos. Hope you have a lovely pink day.

Grandma Faith said...

Thanks for posting the pink flamingoes. It just wouldn't be Pink Saturday without them. I had never heard of Felder, so I had to go to his website and check him out. Man, his porch is beautiful with that green roof. I found the list of all the past radio shows, so I can use him as a resource now. What a guy! Take care.
