This Old Gnome

This Old Gnome

This Gnome belonged to my Grandparents. It rested on the little front porch by their lawn chairs.
She also had a big coffee table book about Gnomes. We spent hours looking at the colorful illustrations of Gnome life when we visited.
My Dad brought him by to visit my garden a couple of years ago…he has taken a few tumbles in the past and has been glued back together in a few places. He sure has kept his youthful appearance despite his age.
I enjoyed him for a year, then passed him on to live at my big sister’s house. She started a little Gnome collection in her garden for her Granddaughter’s to enjoy.
Gnomes live on in our memories and gardens.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Johnson

There will be plenty of Heirloom tomato plants!
The greenhouse is filled with a beautiful crop of plants for my little sale this Spring.
Herbs too….I can’t live without my herbs–you should have some too.
Spring is warming my soul, as I get the garden ready for company.
