  1. These are indeed gnomes. I can see this! And your darling pup's ears rather match those gnarly gnomes! Someday soon I will upload my tree puppy--who looks so much like your darling here, you will be amazed.

    Lovely lovely post.

  3. They do remind me of garden gnome hats, especially the one third from the bottom. Angelina is much cuter than any garden gnome I've seen.

  4. The variety and loveliness of flowers is so astounding. It is nice to share that love with you. I especially admire the two photos with the dark background. They convey an essence of mystery that speaks to me deeply. Your dog is so cute!
