Electrified!

Jim Triezenberg's avatar Jim Triezenberg

Imagine, for a moment, a surge of electric current flowing through a jungle garden pole... Atop it all, an antique lantern flashes to life with a flickering neon flame. Flowers light up or spin. Icy arctic figures begin to glow along with an ear of corn, grapes, and garden critters. A butterfly flaps its wings, a diamond spins within a snail's shell, an Arduino-controlled frog on a lily pad blinks and pneumatically extends its tongue while a toucan dances on its leafy perch. Lights pulse in changing colors as glowing tubes bubble and the sound of whirring motors fills the air. It's truly a whimsical spectacle to behold, and will surely leave children ages 0 to 99 and above... Electrified!
