artificial flowers

In many parts of the United States where water is plentiful, it is against the cultural norm to use artificial flowers in gardens or flower pots outside. Here in Thermop and in other surrounding communities, however, I have seen that this is perfectly acceptable—even in upscale homes.

In the first two photographs, note the combination of real and artificial plants. Given the semiarid climate, this practice is understandable. If you are not from this region of the U.S., I think you must admit that artificial plants can enhance the appearance of homes.

In cemeteries, I have not found any real flowers; all flowers are artificial, as seen in the example below.
