FREE THE GNOMES


Here are a couple of happy gnomes a couple blocks away from me, tending to their lawns and minding their own business - whoa... these guys are chained to the trees. Montrealers are generally a decent lot, but I've managed to capture the city's cruel side, a part of the unseen, nasty underbelly that is usually relegated to the downtown core... (photo is clickable)

I pass this yard on every trip to the post office and it cracks me up every Spring when the shackled gnomes are back out. This elderly gentleman takes excellent care of his lawn as you can see by the weedless grass, and he also definitely loves his gnomes. Gnome thieves will have to uproot the trees if they are desperate enough to make off with these fellas.

Hope you're all having a good week-end ☺

Looks like some sort of weird bondage game they're playing. We've all heard about those kinky gnomes.

Hi, your blog is fabulous! High Desert Diva referred me. She mentioned one of your posts that gave instructions on adding both left and right sidebars to my blog. I scanned through your previous posts and couldn't find it. Thanks for your help...

Gnomes are so darned cute though! It doesn't surprise me that people steal them, and what a creative idea... to chain them to the tree!

hahahahahahahaaa

They seem so content for being slave labor.
