    I've ridden by this thing countless times over years and for some reason never got a pic til today.

    What do you think it is? I'm stumped.

    I took this in front of the same house that had the red thing. What kind of plant is this?

    Looks like a giant pushpin to me. My guess is that it's someone's idea of a modern art sculpture.

    I don't know what it is, but I want one! It would go great with my pink flamingos.

    Don't know what kind of plant that is either, but it appears the bugs like it.

    When I first looked at it... and then saw the second "poppy" :lol picture, I immediately thought it was the secret passage to Wonderland (a la`Alice, et al.) Looks like the Mad Hatter got caught in the doorway.... probably eyeing those inverted poppies :brow

    But, after further inspection, I agree - it's a push-pin. Ho-hum.

    Can't help you with the big red thing. The plant is a red goosberry.

    I think those Google Map location pins are really pins that get placed by satellites.

    doesn't look like gooseberry to me, more like bell flowers.
