La Maison Fleurie

G IS FOR?



GNOMES!

~ strictly speaking some of these little fellows are Snow White's companions so they might object vehemently to being referred to as gnomes. We stumbled across this garden by chance earlier this summer when driving through Normandy ~ of course himself had to pull over so that the camera for the camera to come out . I would have liked to see this establishment at night as there was a myriad of lights ready to twinkle in the darkness.



Go to ABC Wednesday now for some great posts on the letter G !

  3. I loved the visit to Gnomes-ville. What a display of Gromes all around the house. Thanks for sharing it was fun.

  4. I don't mind garden gnomes, but this is taking it a bit far! I hope the gnome liberation front isn't going to take them away though (and before you ask: yes, they do exist and have been known to take garden gnomes from the gardens and put them in forests and fields).

  13. I also thought right away that this place would be a good target for the gnome liberation front, especially active in France. Gee that place could even compete with the gnome communities in my allotment colony.
