Gnomelet Blogs :: Currently


Hello wonderfull readers of my mums blog, I am first born (gnomelet). And though I normally just stick to doing the techi work (backgrounds etc) I just thought I would give you a sneaky peak at the rest of the garden and a tiny bit of the japenese garden as it stands now.
I am back home from uni for easter and I really appreciate the garden all the more when I come from the inner city. Thankfully we have had quite a few days recently of non typical english weather, so I snapped these in the sun.


The ladder through the trees goes to the tree house my dad (himself) built.


Poor shaun the sheep has seen better days.



These artfully arranged pebbles go around the edge of the stream. Don't let this picture fool you into thinking they finished the garden though. I zoomed in on the only totally complete section, though when the chief gnome saw this her first thought was that it needed weeding. She will never give up, I can tell you that.

Hi Gnomelet! :) Nice job on the techi work for the blog. Your natural ladder to the tree house looks inviting for a great view then of your families garden project.

We have been watching a claymation show called shaun the sheep. It always gives us a wonderful laugh.

Have a great spring break in the Sun.

Love the ladder and Shaun, even if he is a bit worse for wear!

Very creative photos!
Love shaun the sheep.

Ruth said...

Thankyou All.

Natural Moments, shaun was actually named after that very sheep, though more for in his original role in 'Wallace and Gromit the Close Shave'. I really should watch his spin off.

Hi gnomelet, impressive boulders and thick trunks – I'm expecting to see a troll peeping from behind one of them :-) (being a Swede, where the trolls have resided for hundreds of years, I can assure you, that they are not as freightening as they may look. I'm sure they'd get on well with English gnomes, particularily if bribed with a cuppa tea and a flapjack (has to be homemade though).

Ruth said...

Thankyou for all the lovely comments.

Camellia, we do have a troll actually. Unfortunatley our english ones are very shy and prefer to hide in the wood pile rather than converse with gnomes. I may have to try the flapjack trick :)
