Flamingos All Around

I don't know about you, but there is something about a flamingo that just makes me smile.
Is it their color?
Or maybe it is there long neck and the graceful way they can stand on one leg, as if in a perpetual Vrksasana.
Maybe it is the thought of warmer climates and palm trees... not quite sure.
Flamingo Trees
All I know is that when I opened a gift for my birthday from my dear friend Uma* I could hardly contain myself.
I mean look at these things?
I love that she used the idea of a "Christmas tree" and flip-flopped it into something so unseasonal and wonderful.
I am totally in love with these little nick-knacks right now.
They are sitting pretty in the dinning room for all to see...

I love them...they are so cheerful. Also love that you said they are in a perpetual "Vrksasana"--one of my yoga teacher's favorites...I may never look at a flamingo quite the same way again.
