Dormers and Skylights

 

Thanks Becky for the challenge.  I took this photo on my visit to Nuremberg, Germany.

I’m used to seeing the dormers and skylights just not this many on one structure.  Found this interesting.

Flamingo-osis in America

The pink flamingo is popular plastic lawn ornament that never goes out of style. Since the late 1950’s you can travel almost anywhere and see these bright pink long-necked birds decorating homes and businesses.
Why is the flamingo one of the most popular lawn ornaments?

Some folks believe that since the wading bird can stand on one leg it will bring “balance” to their lives.

It is used to identify a property ( just look for the porch with the bright pink flamingo)

It can be a landmark for directions (make a right at the house with the pink flamingo)

It’s bright, playful, and easy to decorate for holidays so it can stay out all year

Its tropical theme sends off good vibes of warmth, fun, and happiness

They are used for fundraisers, you can send a flock to the neighbor’s yard

Affordable Decor

It’s a Florida souvenir you can share with everyone

It’s a conversation piece in your front yard, letting neighbors know you are sociable

They are not one size fits all

These birds were first sold by Sears Roebuck in a 1958 catalog. Having a reputation at times for being “tacky”, no one can ever say they are not part of the iconic American landscape. Hundred of thousands are sold every year
