Gnomes, Flowers and A Poem

13 Jun

On the walk to school, always delightful chatting to the LiveWires, we pass by a garden full of golden gnomes and other ornaments.

Outside one of the coffee shops are a pair of planters.

LiveWire No3 is practising for a Poetry Slam next week. This is her poem –

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Eating black bananas
Where do you think he put the skins?
Down the King’s pyjamas!

    That is a beautiful planter, of course, I’m partial to flowers in the pansy family. Gnomes have never been my thing, but they do bring a smile in other people’s landscaping plans.

      Gnomes are not my thing either but the garden amused me and the LiveWires. πŸ™‚

    Those gnomes are just begging to go on a world tour.

        Australians are notorious for it. A friend of mine from school took a local gnome on a world tour, and even sent postcards to it’s owner πŸ™‚

          What a fun thing to do! It reminds me of HayBear, mascot at the school I taught at for 25 years, who was given into the care of a member of staff each end of term assembly. He was then taken where ever the member of staff was going for the break and photos shared! Thanks for the memory. πŸ™‚
