Backyard magic

Over the weekend, my sister gave me several new toadstool solar lights for my backyard gnome garden.  

I also found a pair of mini plastic flamingos at Shopco (rumor has it they are also available at Camping World and some Dollar Tree stores).

With all my new backyard accessories, the gnome house and all the plantings received a good spring cleaning.   Yes.  I might have taken some of these pictures in my pajamas. I realize I am a dork and it's a good thing that my gnome garden is in the backyard woods and that only a few birds and small creatures witnessed this photo shoot.  

I promise to try and catch up on blog reading.  May is my hectic month of faculty development and spring semester classes.  I haven't had much blogging time lately.  Don't give up on me!

I love your woodsy garden. I still redo my wood toadstool. It cracks every few years and I just buy another bowl from the thrift store and repaint. Love the flamingos too!
