Joys of Autumn and Sheer Silliness

Reading about a large family of hardy plants on Pam Montgomery's blog reminded me of a volunteer specimen that seems to be a hybrid between my 'autumn joy' stonecrop (or sedum) near the public sidewalk and a much shorter spreading 'dragons blood' variety close to our house.

Rosy flowered as opposed to rust red,
this sedum still makes for excellent
mantid hunting grounds...

The silly thing I want to share did not photograph so well. With the homeowner in his open garage, I snapped a quick pic and drove away.

The green rectangle frames
what I tried to show...

At least an Internet search offered plenty of images. There are numerous vendors and some of their products actually spin.

I think the solid silver one looks better.

Have you seen one of these novelty car accessories? Would you own one?



  1. How fun. Perfect for that car for sure.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Darla. ♥

  2. The winder is a new one for me. I've seen the antlers and nose for Christmas. I've seen various Halloween-y ones. And, of course, the sports team flags. But not a winder.

  3. That is just too cute on the back of that car. It does look like a little wind up toy. Actually a big wind up toy but you get what I

  4. I love it. Yes, I would own one :) I used to want the sticker for a car that makes it look like it got shot up, but my hubby didn't think it would be a good idea. XO

  5. Oh, I've seen those windup toy keys before, but it's been awhile! What fun! We need to have more fun with stuff, don't you think?

  6. Now I don't have one of those on my plant!!! haha....and I love the wind up thingy on the car. I love that. Too....too...too cute.

  7. That is darn cute, the wind up car!

    1. I agree, and just realized it would be funny to wear one as a Halloween costume. Just normal street clothes and a wind-up key. Heh... Too bad we aren't likely to attend any parties.

  8. Loved your comment about me making egg salad out of chicken crap...haha....I try to see the bright side of most things. Spent the night now sleeping so I made the best of it and painted.... :)
