Good Fences #29 - 9 October 2014

Early morning thoughts today,
 from where Gnomes roam.




Please meet my treasured earthly groundskeeper, Mr. Gnome.  He may be wearing a smile this morning, but he's carrying a heavy burden.  His friends are wilting or worse, drastically drying up around him.  






Of course, this bit of news just in from his friends on the west side of my house.  Jack Frost is still sleeping across our yard as this is being announced.  See, life is so much brighter on the east side in the morning hours.  


Proof - sometimes, somebody else is struggling even more.


"My life is a lovely story, happy and full of incident."  -  Hans Christian Andersen



Whatever comes your way
wear your days proud. - Karen Sather






"Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."  - Hans Christian Andersen


Be kind to your flowers.  
Cover them nightly, stretch out their days.  
Trust an old Gnome, 
you'll miss them when they're dried up!




My morning perspective?  Beware the hungry wretched bite of Jack Frost.  Get plenty of sunlight, and for all those friends you bring inside, study daylighting now.



Always remember, "Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale."  -  Hans Christian Andersen

Who knows what lies in the heart of the outer woods? Only the Gnome knows!

That splendid red hat is enough to make you forget the frost.

Mr. Gnome knows all the plants will come back next spring, because he is wise (and happy)!

You wrote such a sweet post here! I can't even think of Jack Frost, it is so hot here, and I just read the forecast, it is getting even hotter over the weekend. I am so ready for cooler temperatures. And rain. My flowers would love that!

I love your little gnome. I have one that a friend gave me but he's an inside gnome. All his cousins that were given to other friends have long disintegrated so I guess they weren't meant for bad weather, and I am so glad I kept mine inside because he's luverley :)

Oh that little Elf guy is so cute sitting there on your fence. Sorry about "Jack Frost" so far he hasn't headed our direction.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Mr Gnome is a cute guy, indeed! Most my flowers are wilted and gone - I don't mind, though, I like winter,too.

hey...i'm late...but finally checking in. You knew I would like this post, didn't you. I really need to add gnomes to my yard. I have a burro, a bunny, turtle, and pagoda. Off to the nursery to spend some money.

just goes to prove that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence...sometimes its frosty.
