Gnome sweet gnome

"A gnome is a cute, legendary creature characterized by its very small size and subterranean lifestyle"

This garden gnome or manó mano as we call it (or as zsolt pointed out törpe too :), appeared to have been super-sized; standing at approx. 2 ft. tall! still cute nonetheless. Do you have one hidden in your garden?

Happy Sunday to all and Happy Easter !

i would rather call it "törpe".:) I guess its more popular in Germany where is a cult of "kobold"s. I like in yout photo that it looks like you were peeping the MANÓ and he didnt recognise you:) Cuteee

Good title! I like to spend some time on the words as well and once in a while they seem to come out in the right order.

Better watch out for these guys

Garde Gnome Liberation Front

I like the groups that steal gnomes and send photographs of them residing in freedom, somewhere far away

zsolt,
haha, i was indeed peeping. The owner saw my suspicious behaviour and offered to turn the törpe to face the cam. So kind of her ;)

Per/James,
got the title somewhere online :p

Richard,
yes, I read about it. Just kind of bizarre for me! :)

Thanks all again for your feedback !

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on the hummer.

I like your gnome in the picture. They are just like that on television commercials here.

we call them "gnomos". i remeber when i was a little girl there were on TV a cartoon serie called David el Gnomo.. and he was just like your statue... but smaller i'm sure

I have seen garden gnomes before however I never had an opportunity to photograph one before. Normally I see gnomes as decorations on a shelf.
