November 23 Domingo

Wow have you seen the picture on the neighbours wall, yes its the Little Gnomes Chimney!!!!!! I smell the BBQ ribs cooking up the garden path for dinner, Gnomous afternoon to all. Oh by the way just a snap of Grandma Gnome relaxing in the late November afternoon sun, legs up and a little light reading. The books title? MISSING, perhaps a slight reflection on the Little Gnome (where has he disappeared to now????????) GNOME night all.

Re: The Little Gnome needs HELP!

Good Gnome day to all, any one who had seen my request for HELP on the 3/06/2008 with the problem of growing Cala Lilies from seed pods. Well just look at the PHOTO, what a success, over 55 seedlings and they are still shooting up, WOWEE!!!!! The only information I could find, said several years before producing from seeds!! Just popped into seed compost and wayee they have produced. Now looks as if I will have a Cala Lily Forest at the bottom of the garden. Watch this space for progress, THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT, the Little Gnome.

New friend

Yes another new friend in the little Gnomes garden, Jiminy Cricket, makes quite a lot of noise at night on the terrace, but during the day loves to bask in the sun. Just look at the length of his legs, measures just under three & a quarter inches. Also loves to lay in the folds of the large umbrella when the sun gets too hot !!! As you can see he´s not camera shy at all, in fact he may even be a bit of a poser. Of course he´s also part of the Green environment. It may well be he sits here watching the birds having a shower & preening themselves!

Day of the Dragonfly

The Dragonfly is back, landing for a rest on the West side of Gnome Heliport. Gnome air traffic control zoomed him in through the circling Butterflies, Hovering gracefully before landing on a prime spot for him to flaunt his wonderful fuselage, animated face & wonderful gold netted wing detail, not forgetting his unique landing gear!!!
