Yokel Yard Art

Updated on January 20, 2013

Welcome To Yokel Yard Art

This light-hearted lens is devoted to those who do not possess either a green thumb or for that matter any sort of taste when it comes to selecting appropriate decorative additions to one's garden or green lawn.

In a world full of experts, guidebooks, and manuals, this little gem focuses on the little known subject of yokel yard art, also known as "buffoon beautification", "duffus decorations", or "screwball statuary". However, we leave it to you to be the judge!

YOKEL (n.) one who can't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel; all foam and no beer; as smart as bait.

And now a couple of words from two twits - About The Yokel Yard Art Society

The Yokel Yard Art Society is not your usual group of artsy-fartsy folks. In fact, most members prefer to remain anonymous preferring to let their yahoo yard works of art speak for themselves.

Nevertheless, they do meet once a year to celebrate the latest additions to their wacky works of art. As to when they meet, well that pretty much depends on the weather, if the spirit moves them, and what sort of food and beverages are being served.

Suffice to say, that if you're in need of a few outrageous guests for your next garden party, we'll be only too happy to bring along a plastic posey or two if you're interested.

A Word About Yuppy Yards and Yokel Yards

When it comes to "yuppy yards", there is not a blade of grass out of place, not a blessed blossom that has not been color-coordinated, nor a shrub that has not been shaped or shaved by a team of turf and tree titans.

On the other hand, when it comes to "yokel yards", who knows what sort of crazy critters one will find frolicking about in the fake flower beds, or even what on earth is that stuff hanging from the tree?
