oh, people of japan. how you love to create fake things that behave like real things, only plastic-ier.
and, occasionally, irresistible.
just discovered these happy, dancing & oh-so-plastic solar-powered flowers.
googling around, it looks like maybe flip flap was the original. but i found them [& yes, acquired some] at solarflower.us.
just try to watch them dance for a half-minute & not smile.
so this clearly doesn't qualify as something green for earth week ... but it is solar-powered!
ok, & i'm going to acquire some topsy turvy planters as well, to introduce our family to homegrown produce [the tv way, i realize, but hey － we black thumbs must ease into these things!].
