LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

Home for a Gnome
This little fellow sat guarding one of our nearby flower gardens for a few years until his colours faded and he had to finally be removed for respectability-sake. He sat on my workbench in the garage for about a year until I finally felt motivated enough to purchase some paints, also using some of my house and fence paints, and gave him renewed red jacket, green pants and hat, black shoes, and a repaint of other things including his pink face.

Now he is back, reinstated to his former glory and on guard once again.

He doesn't have a name, but if readers care to suggest some names he will probably be delighted!

Carl comes to mind for some reason Dave, not sure why but he just looks like a Carl :) Now he is all spruced up I hope he's not going to be one of those gnomes who disappear every now and again on World trips and send postcards home? hehe :)

Carl sounds OK to me Pete, unless someone comes up with a more exclusive one! He won't travel far. He's broke! - Dave

The movie Gnomeo and Juliet may have some good name suggestions...

Dave said...

Thanks PG. If you have seen that movie can you suggest a name as I probably won't get to see it? :-) - Dave
