You'll never guess our exciting news!

Gary has a new friend! Well, he doesn't know it yet...and hopefully he won't be upset that this fellow has moved in while he's been gone, but someone had to keep the garden up!! Gary has been heedlessly gallivanting around the country. I did hear a rumor that he visited us for a short bit, but he didn't bother to stop and say hello.

Grant arrived this past Monday via UPS. Great big box, itty bitty gnome. He has his very own pair of gardening shears which will be very handy for cutting back wily branches and out of control weeds. There are two sweet little birds who hang around him...assumedly because he himself is such a sweet little gnome. And of course, he has a wonderful pot on his head. A gnome can't have a cold head, now can he?

Of course, since it's still winter, Grant has to content himself with pruning indoor plants. There are three amaryllis plants which need coaxing to flower and he will have to watch over all of the newly seeded vegetables and flowers. Very important jobs. He showed up just in time.

He was handcrafted just for our garden with love and care. Isn't he just the cutest!?

*Thanks Grandma!
