Fall Shrubbery
.....in the Target parking lot





These are so pretty in person, but look kind of blah when seen through the lens of a cheap digital camera.




I'm going back to cut some of these to take home. I'm allowed to do that, right?




Beyond these beautiful blooming yucca plants is the mysterious Target red concrete ball. What are these things? Barriers? Mini playground?

Those giant red balls are lots of fun to 'leapfrog' over. Plus it's always fun to watch people's faces when I do it. Especially if I am alone!!

Those red balls are super secret security cameras ready to snap pictures of crab-toting Grandma's trying to take the shrubbery.

Make sure you smile and say "Prunes" like Mental Mama does when she gets her picture taken.

The toothbrush joke is funny!!!
You know how I love Target...and the landscaping at target is great too. I never did get it about the big red balls though...maybe the center of the "target"????

Yes, those giant red balls are strange looking, but nobody has ever driven through one and into the store! Well, I'm betting, anyway. ;-)

LOL...good one!
What the hell are those red balls for anyway?

I'm with HalfAsstic -- they're designed to prevent crazy people from driving into the stores. But your store appears to have only one, and placed in a strange spot. So maybe it is just the bull's eye in the target.

I'm totally grossed out by the toilet scrubbing joke. Glad I'm the one who scrubs toilets around here.

Fair warning on mutilating the bushes. They probably have cameras in that parking lot. Do the crime, do the time.

I love those flowers. They are so pretty. I totally think you should clip some! Free flowers are the BEST! Or I could send you some. Either or : ).

I can not wait to find out what those red balls are for. Should I google it? : )

The red balls are so terrorists don't drive their trucks of dynomite into Target's delivery area...but I like the secret camera idea for taking your photo when you cut the flowers!

"These are so pretty in person, but look kind of blah when seen through the lens of a cheap digital camera." I've always thought of myself this way! It is always the camera's fault.

These balls? Always have made my kids wait behind one while the traffic clears. We're much safer thanks to the balls. I think they were a result of the 9/11 Commission Report.

LOL @ Caution Flag's comment. I agree that it's the camera's fault!

Oh and I learned the hard (and PAINFUL) way to never attempt to sit on one of those balls at Target.

When I was at Target on Saturday, I looked for shrubbery. We don't have any. It must be something special they do for Texas people : ) And that was the final straw. I simply MUST move to Texas : )
