Green Thumb Sunday - Garden Gnome

Here is proof that I have a Gnome living in my garden. If you have a Gnome in your garden and you have a blog, please feature your Gnome in a post so that he/she can be acknowledged for the wonderful work that they do!

I discovered my Gnome sitting in my Phalanopsis where he guards it agaisnt any preditors that might hurt the plant or its blooms. Luckily I was the recipient many Christmases ago of a book by Poortvliet/Huygen simply titled "Gnomes" so I knew not to fear my Gnome when it appeared in my garden.

I believe my gnome is a Forest Gnome so I'm not exactly sure how it ended up in Central Florida but we are happy to have him! I believe he may have a few friends around here and when I am feeling better, I will search the garden for photographic proof.
