I have a route when I walk through my neighborhood (for exercise). It involves looping passed the local elementary school. The sidewalk runs along the one side of the school, where there is a little garden started by a spouse of a former teacher. Both the spouse and the teacher have moved on. And the garden was left to itself. Since they were native plants, they thrived and grew out of control. I passed this garden almost daily.

So imagine my surprise this week, when I walked by and saw this!The garden was in mid clean up and… Holy Mudder of Peanut Butter!  A BLUE gnome! What the…???!!!


Do you think that the gardener reads Randie & Ryan? or Squid Row… or is this just coincidence?
