To read the post that Tille so sadly did not see, go to Garden Rant.
In case you can not read the text above, click to enlarge. This is one, in a huge number of Gnomes taking their own lives. There have been reports of eleven of them hanging from a bridge in Briey, France. It was attributed to mass grief among the little forest dwellers for their brethren, the garden gnomes.
Please send your condolences care of the comments portion of the post. All comments will be sent directly to Garden Gnomes, Central Park, New York, NY 10019. Remember, as the newspaper reported, he is looking down with a tear in his eye. Show him that you care.
And if you know anyone willing to adopt Tille’s pet snail, Speedy, please pass along that information. It is much appreciated, since gnomes can not adopt a departed gnome’s pet. The image of Speedy is heart wrenching, as he desperately looks for his friend, Tille, eyes extended almost beyond his ability.
