Every Garden Needs a Gnome....

And I finally found one for mine!
Spot the Gnome
I splurged on a vintage 1960s ceramic garden gnome for a big ten bucks at an antique store. Well, the 1960s isn't quite antique yet, but the gnome is cute, sun- and rainproof, and keeps an eye on my plants while I'm away. Doesn't quite go with the stone meditating Zen monk sculpture, but we're very multicultural around here.


  1. I am currently Gnomeless. I do have a groundhog, several squirrels, and several rabbits. Unfortunately, they will not stay where I would like to put them (down the road a few miles)!!!

  2. Groundhogs can be tough! We don't have any here, though we have enough ants to make up for it.

  3. He looks like a hard working gnome - plump. Nice spot you have there for him. :)

  4. Thank you, Ngeun! Though clearly British, he seems to be adjusting well to our modern sub-tropical lifestyle.
