lawn ornaments.

April 16, 2014

and the greatest lawn ornament award goes to ..

a larger than life statue of grant wood’s painting American Gothic. in the middle of a city, no less.

I must know more; who built this? why? and how?

I’ll get to the bottom of it, even if I have to knock on their door. and I’ll report back.

in the meantime, we all need to step our lawn ornament game 🙂

happy wednesday.

    Is this off University ave between Waukee/wdm/clive? If so, it is owned by Krouse’s (the family that owns Kum & Go). They are big art collectors 🙂
