As I walked along 11th Street from 4th Ave to 5th, I noticed these flowers, which seemed too huge and too pink and too thick to be the real thing. “I will have to ask my landscaper-friend about these amazing flowers,” I thought, “which look so much like fake flowers!”
I leaned in to take a picture to send her. And then I noticed the plastic stems.
The lesson here is that if it looks like a fake flower, and it smells like a fake flower, then probably you don’t have to call a friend for further info — it’s a fake flower.
