Mum and Dad's garden

There are lots of things I like about my parents garden but the little creatures/ornaments they have dotted around the place are my favourites - here are some of them.

These ducks are normally painted but my Dad has left them out to weather them a bit - I think it's working!

Grandad the dustman gnome - my Dad is a binman (refuse collector) and when we saw this we had to get it for him. It goes into the greenhouse in the winter and makes his apperance again in the Spring and always in a different part of the garden.

Hedgehog was rescued from a house that was about to be demolished - I think he likes living under the hedge.

This little garden of gnomes also like living under the hedge too - they are joined by three monkeys.

Can you spot the rabbit ears?He is hiding because I think he is shy!

And my favourite is this heart stone that my Dad found and brought home for my mum - ahhhh!

Oh, that's really nice! Your Mum is lucky to have a man who thinks of bringing things like that home!
