One day several years ago, I heard muffled giggling and conversation in my front yard.

No gnomes here --- but we do have the odd frog, stained glass dragonfly and kitten scattered about. Also, there is a little boy, fishing from our dock, often with a duck decoy alseep nearby, and a fawn asleep on our proch. No photos but if I remember, I'll get out and take some tomorrow (assuming it isn't snowing! LOL)...

When we lived in London, there was this little cottage on the estate next door that was wall-to-wall gnomes. They were kind of the British equivalent of platic pink flamingos!

I have gargoyles too; See-no-evil, Hear-no-evil, and Speak-no-evil.

OK, as promised, I went on a photographic tour of DH's garden this morning... Warning --- this is photo heavy!

The odd frog mentioned is this guy --- a metal piece with a leg that swings in the wind. BIrds have done a thing on the poor guy's head...

Stained glass dragon flies and kitten ... they live near a dragonfly-embossed bird bath which is disassembled for the winter. (there is also a metal dragonfly plaque and a dragon-fly embossed garden bench --- lots of dragonflies!)

How cute! Sounds like you live in a fun neighborhood Karen!

No gnomes here. We inherited a bunch of weird statues from MIL when we moved into her old home years ago. DH ended up hiding most of them in the woods on our property and set up a treasure hunt/map for the kids one summer, using the statues as reference points.

Here are our "decorative" birdhouses --- we bought them at the Crsoby Art Festival two years running... and birds do nest in them. The dark blue and white is ceramic... and this one has something of a slant so I assume the birds need to be a bit tipsy to like it! LOL

We also have some plain ones --- one of which is already occupied by chickadees...
