Good Fences and Gnome Chasing

Gnomes, aren't just found in gardens. Oh no, they scurry from fence post to fence rail and often hide behind trees. 
 Gnomes are mysterious and sweetly subtle in their cunning nature,
 exacting tenderness upon our emotions whenever they're near.

Before you step one foot, into your car, 
have you checked your garden, for gnomes?


An early morning stroll, especially when accompanied by Gnomes, is always a blessing.

"Let others tell of rain and showers;
I only count the shining hours."
English Sundial Inscription

It's been said a gnome will speak their mind when others bite their tongues!
Honesty is their way, with a dash of shenanigans!

"Muggles have garden gnomes, too, you know,"  Harry told Ron as they crossed the yard.
"Yeah, I've seen those things they think are gnomes," said Ron, bent double with his head in a peony bush, like fat little Santa Clauses with fishing rods...." J.K. Rowling

New days, new ways, new friends along the way.

Somebody must water the flowers.

"I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride, stroll, run, skip or hike, while you're on it!" Johnny Depp and Me

Cute little gnome and post. I wonder if the gnomes would scare the voles away. Great fence shots, enjoy your day!

Only the Garden Gnome knows where his magic mushrooms grow. Sigh.

Sweet little gnome - and very industrious. My gnome is on a swing in the little grove of trees beside the house - his name is Chompsky.
