Gardens with and without gnomes

Bluebell woods

Floradora went on a long walk one sunny spring afternoon…

.

.

Dogwood

…she checked up on the progress of her favourite dogwood tree…

.

.

Fairies

…and visited some little fairy friends.

.

.

creeper

She walked along a stone wall…

.

.

Violets

…when she got as far as the clump of violets she sat down to sniff them…

.

.

Paving

…then continued along until she reached…

.

.

Gnome Bay

…the Gnome Bay family, which consists of several gnomes of various sizes and occupations.

.

.

Gnome!

They scoffed at the idea of going extinct (indeed there seemed to be an overabundance of gnomes in this tree).

.

.

Tulips

After escaping their teasing jollility and with some relief, Floradora made her way through the lovely tulips…

.

.

Tea time

…and arrived at last at her favourite tree, where she stopped for a restorative cup of sweet tea and cakes.  These treats are always set out on this log for the relief of tired dolls, complete with friendly and encouraging cats.

Lilac

Floradora was quite refreshed, and skipped home to the Hitty Cupboard.  She thinks it would be a nice idea to put out doll refreshments at the edge of our road.

  1. Oh Floradora, I think if we all could have similar walks in our lives, restoration would be abundant. I find picnics to be restorative and I thank you for your regular reminders of the lovely and pleasant activities in life.

    • We are so lucky, and so grateful to have Hittys in our lives – they remind us to take walks in our beautiful part of the world, and to play and they are good restoratives in and of themselves!

  2. What an excellent idea, Floradora – to put out little refreshments for any passing doll friends – even in the countryside… Thank you for bringing me along on your Earth Day morning walk today!

  3. Floradora has inspired us to take a long walk all around the place. And like dear Floradora we found a lot of flowers but sadly no gnomes!! The HIttys here also like the idea of setting out refreshments in a secluded spot. Thank you for a lovely visit.
