Wake Up!


Today our wonderful sunshine is gone and it is dreary and rainy. This guy has decided it is nap time.

We have a hideous plug on the wall here so I try to hide it with pots. Why do they put plugs right where everyone can see them?


As for the gnome, he was sort of lost in the garden when he showed up here in the pots one day. A certain big guy likes to arrange things in the garden as well and I love to stumble upon the surprises.

  4. Your pots look great, Elaine! Your little gnome is so cute....he might get kidnapped and travel the world like the one in the movie Amelie! ;P

  6. Ooooo. Gorgeous plants! I'm with you...why do they put those plugs in the WRONG places? Oh well, I think you did a wonderful job covering it up.
    Have a good one.

  13. I actually have the same question Elaine. Why can't they make discrete plugs instead? :)

    I always enjoy snapshots from your beautiful home. The plants and the flowers leave a refreshing feel in any home.

  14. Hi Elaine, hope the sun shines again soon. I love how the earth feels so new and refreshed after a fallen rain. Just happy when it doesn't last long. Mr. gnome looks right at home among your pretty blooms. I would love if you would share this at my new link party, Share Your Cup Thursday.
    Hugs,
