OMG – I bought a gnome!

I need a holiday. The stress of looking after all those seedlings has finally got to me. Need proof? Well the other week I bought a gnome*. Well, that’s not strictly true. I bought three and I am sure you can guess what the other two look like when you see just one. What’s worse is – I like it. Anyone that knows me will think I have lost my mind. I have never wanted to stop anyone from having gnomes if they want them – but me buying a gnome?

I don’t want to see them every day but hidden in the bushes in a quiet part of the garden they actually look quite good.

Anyone know a good therapist?


Back to sanity tomorrow – I promise.




* For locals, this one, part of a three part set, was bought at Springmount Garden Centre, Ballycanew, Wexford.

    I have been tempted in the past to comment on various blogs …. but this time I couldn’t let it go…yes you have lost your mind! I could hardly believe what I was seeing! But then when I saw the photo of him ..well …it’s not too bad! Maybe you’ll able to bring him back to the UK when you return, just like in Amelie!
