Trolling the British


This house is in our neighborhood. I have no idea as to the significance of the various artifacts but they do make for a fun photo.

One more of those and they'll have enough garden gnomes to launch Operation World Gnomination.

I think William has said it all for this one, Lowell! ;-))

Exterior decoration!

In reply to your question on my post - The autorickshaws in the photograph are powered by 'Compressed natural gas' and not battery operated. They are a cheaper mode of transport.

Kay said...

Yep. William nailed it.
All I can add is: really??!

Bibi said...

Love William's comment! There used to be a house like this in my mother's neighborhood... One of the first signs of spring was that the gnomes were out...

World Gnomination could really be around the corner...

Sharon Anck said...

That is quite a lot of yard trinkets. I even see Snow White in there. The World Gmomination comment has me laughing out loud!

To answer your question about "Mole", it's a sauce made of chilies and chocolate and when you get the proportions right, it's just about perfect. This place does it very well. In this case the sauce is poured over the enchiladas.

Such fun and very colourful! :)

No comment about this garden, but seeing from your posts, you seem to have unique neighbors who enjoy their own way.

I did not know that the English also collect garden gnomes. After all, they are usually in German gardens - and there almost every garden has at least one or two elves.
They are quite cute, if not too many :D
