Garden Gnome. Mot at door.


You may wonder why I call him Mot. it is the anagram of Tom my Great Grandson, now 5years old, born on my Birthday which is today. He is standing on a carpet of Mind Your Own Business (Soleirolia). He is guarding the doorway to protect the Mouse family who live in the shed. The door is a fake. To protect Mice from Poppy the Cat.

Happy birthday to Tom and his great grandfather !

Mot the gnome is wonderful and the mouse doorway is very cute. What a great idea !

At first I thought the gnome was named M.O.T. - like when your car needs an annual check up ! lol
