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.

Excellent banner Elizabeth!!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

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!
