We have a garden gnome OH inherited when his dad died.  I'm hoping it dies of frost bite.    I have birds in my garden - 4 different guineau fowl made from clay sculpted in the UK and 2 in Belgium, 6 made from metal in Zimbabwe, one clay owl, one metal heron, one metal cock, one metal hen, one metal cat and a metal frog.

I really dislike gnomes and fairies and twee stuff but that's a matter of taste and they'd look very foolish in my garden.  Don't think it's stuffy of the RHS to ban them from Chelsea but I expect the designers and exhibitors will have some fun with them this year.    The RHS does a lot of really good work promoting gardening for children, schools and communities as well as research and advice on plants, diseases, design and so on.   Most of its experts and committee members are professional gardeners and nurserymen and women earning a modest living, not landed gentry and toffs.

I forgot i have 2 metal chickens (ne a pressie) and a wonderful metal butterfly that sits on a pole and moves in the wind. I am hoping it will keep the birds off the fruit but with my luck they will probably use it as a perch

Oh yes and I have a metal butterfly ..forgot that
15/02/2013 at 23:06
I have 2 cats and a little pig, stone or pretending to be stone!
15/02/2013 at 23:13
I have a stone that is heart shaped ..and one that looks like a face..called Roy

I think they're the height of bad taste but each to their own, quite like meerkats and I have a stone cat and a childs large colourful windmill which is moved around the garden to scare away birds from pecking seedlings.

Gary are these fairies some of your photo shop magic. If not can you rememer where you got the one with a  door from'?

The photos are all absolutely genuine, and have not been tampered with.

The fairy door came from Amazon, a couple of years ago. That particular model is no longer listed, but they do have two other designs, both quite similar...

The bright red mushrooms came from Sainsburys.
