Garden Mischief



I think my gnomes want a little more publicity, I've been rather lazy about writing on my blog. I don't know how many packages of poppies I've planted on my property and they never grow!  Because of the heat wave, we had let the grass and weeds grow longer than usual.  Yesterday, when mowing around the fire pit, I noticed on lonely poppy growing in the untrimmed weeds - 
None of my poppies seeds have ever been planted within 50 feet of that location, so gnome planting is the only explanation!  And that could also explain what happened to the rest of my seeds.  I think if I could get through some of the thicker undergrowth in my Gnome Grove, I'd find a field of poppies!

Here are some pictures of some of my other gnome plantings, this time done by me -
I just couldn't bear to throw this gargoyle away even though his wing was broken.  So he stands guard on a small hill in my garden. 
Now I wish the gnomes would work on my new well filtration and water supply so we can open our Bed and Breakfast!
