This is Why MY Flowers Grow So Well

Aren’t these two just adorable?!? I love them! My neighbor gave them to me after I helped her set-up her raised garden bed veggie garden. I placed them right near our driveway for all to see. If you also find them a hoot, they are sold by many, just search for ‘pooping gnomes’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Behind them: Penstemon pinifolius ‘Mersea Yellow’ (Beard-tongue) which bloom in June. A yellow penstemon? I had to have them!ย Their dominant color ranges normally are white to pink to reds. I’ve not seen these in anyone’s garden I’ve visited. My wholesale nursery only sold them one year and discontinued them due to lack of interest and unreliability. I’ve had these for 6 years now and although they haven’t spread much (sometimes a good thing) they plug along where they are at. They are located in a 10″ raised bed of composted, good draining soil – Southern sunny exposure – No irrigation.

Poop makes flowers happy!

  1. If this is a repeat comment – sorry. I tried to put a photo of my stone bunny in here, but no luck.
    I like the little bird on the butt of the one gnome. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I don’t have gnomes in my garden, but a tortoise, two frogs and the bunny. ๐Ÿ™‚

      To add a pix to comments, it must be in your media file 1st. Then cut/paste the url into comment. ๐Ÿ‡

      2. OK!
        I’m a bit rusty!!
        Go to comments tab in your admin area
        Look for the img button above the comment window
        Click it and it will ask for the url (http) of your image.
        I have it on my clipboard b4 coming to comment, so it’s easy to just paste.
