Perpetually in bloom

Glass blooms as garden ornaments. Glass artists have studios at the Toledo Botanical Gardens. They have provided a number of glass garden ornaments for the various flower beds in the studio section of the campus.

What a temptation! Perhaps a whole garden of perpetual blooms, and all you do is spray some windex, no weed pulling, fertilizing, etc. Great banner!

I like your thinking, @Fleur569. Perfect for people with challenging growing conditions, or lacking a green thumb.

Here's the original photo from which I took the banner. As you can tell from the original photo, the glass blooms are super-sized relative to living blooms. Perhaps another reason for 'planting' them.

At first glance I though they weren't real, but I've been wrong before and figured I was going to learn about a "new" flower! Hilarious!
