My dear sister expressed some concern over not seeing Gottfried, our friendly garden gnome that my friend Lisa gave to me years ago, in our previous pictures of the garden. No need to worry - Gottfriend is just fine and at his post!
Here he is, surveying his domain.
(Note that he's totally bleached out by the sun - he's a very diligent (and possibly albino) garden gnome. Perhaps I should repaint him?)
And he's doing a great job. Check out the garden now!
You can't see it from here, but the sugar snap peas are now actually through the netting and are 5-6 inches above the top of it! Amazing. And, as Noel pointed out previously, a little creepy.
