For added fun, consider adding a pink flamingo or two to boldly emphasize your tropical look. Rather than sticking these plastic birds in the middle of your lawn, nestle a few together among your garden's foliage and flowers. Flamingos can be especially pleasing when situated with colors that echo theirs. I guarantee that, in addition to your tropical plants, these birds will make your garden a conversation piece!
