 Looking up the hill at the driveway. We call this the turn around. 
 A closer look of the guard birds. I found these at TSC and they were marker down half price.
 Looking down the drive at the Guard Birds. 
Another close up of my four pink beauties. Every time a BIG TRUCK comes up or down the hill, they have a tendency to take the easy way out and run over the wall. I was tired of the abuse so I thought what would catch your attention. Well, I hope this will help. 
The kitty justice will be if these Pink Birds keeps the wall safe.

Well lets hope you don't look out and see pink flamingoes laying everwhere with their feet in the air!

I am crossing my fingers. Peace

If they cannot see pink flamingoes they cannot see anything. Peace

It takes effort but they could miss the wall if they wanted too. It is easier just to run over it. I hope not to see the picture you painted. Peace

Pink Flamingos---what a hoot. Hopefully your idea will work.
We used to sell the silly birds at the greenhouse I used to work at. People loved them---well some people. MB

I thought the BRIGHT PINK would alert the trucks to the wall. Hope it works. Peace

Ha, Di, I think that's a clever idea to place the flamingoes there to protect your wall. The truck drivers will be so surprised when they see them so they will look twice instead of cutting the corner! I'll keep my fingers crossed :)
Have a nice weekend!

'Pink beauties' indeed. Your idea is ingenious.

You could also use some big pieces of broken glass. lol But the Florida flamingos came a long way from Florida to do a job and will stay around long after the trucks have gone.

Tuesday here and I have just got back to the blog. I have hope the clever idea pans out. Peace

Duta
Thanks and now if it will work. Peace

I can only see the heads from the front of the house, so even if they hang around, it will not be bad. Besides, the pink is about the only color in the yard with this HOT weather. Peace
