New gnomes start their journey

Ottawa, ON(Zone 5a)

Hi folks. Yesterday, Mona stopped by my place and picked up Jerome2 (a smaller version of Jerome that had been in my garden all summer). Mona has friends for Jerome and the lads should be on the road again shortly.

We came from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1017639/

awwwww he's cute! I can see that he'll need a lot of blankies for protection!

I can hardly wait to see him! I hope it's before I lose all the flowers in my garden ^_^
We're only hosting for 3-4 days instead of 2 weeks, right?

Hi everyone,
Glad to hear this has been revived. It was discouraging for a while there. I just heard from Mona - she is ready to hand over the boys, so I am going to meet her Wednesday afternoon in downtown Ottawa. (With work schedules, that's the next feasible time for me to rendez-vous.) I'll give them the lightning tour and it'll be off to the next host. :-) Who's next after me?

the first thing the boys did when they got to my home was try to eat all my tomatoes that I just picked out of the garden

since we had all that trouble with the last group I decided that it was appropriate to have RCMP boys to escort gnome jr. so now he will travel looking for his big brothers
with Bowinkle and miss winnie the bear

they all like the fresh seeds I told them it was not for eating

I told the boys that with all the trouble they caused in the house it was time to go outside to play

then I noticed that they liked the girls and they ran from spot to spot in the garden looking for the girls

but they found a praying budda and didnt know what to make of him since he didnt talk much

I have to go to my horticultural meeting and I have to find the boys since they are now somewhere in the house playing with my daughters they all decided to make a movie which will be posted on youtube tomorrow, so this all for now will post more later tonight

Hi Ann, I had proposed meeting at one of the properties whose gardens I maintain - not sure yet if it's a good location for Mona. We'll D-mail you! I am all over downtown throughout the course of a typical day.

Mona in Metcalfe, ON(Zone 5a)

they kept getting into trouble so in the garden we went they seemed to have fun exploring
