In a desperate attempt to infuse the landscape with colour, I've placed my polyester lei from Oahu in a wooden bowl. It screams tropics. It also screams factory in China...my apologies. Next thing you know I'll be putting tacky palm trees along the perimeter of my property (wait, that's already been done by my neighbour). The lei does offer a dash of life to an otherwise black and white day, so it shall remain there until the grass is green and the skies are blue.
This image isn't gorgeous. Hell, it isn't even pretty but if you look carefully in the background you'll see two white-tail deer bounding past. Without the deer, it's just a dollar store promo pic, and not a good one at that.
