A House Made of Sticks. - The Magic Onions

A House Made of Sticks.

We visited the Arboretum on Sunday. As we have been reading the story of the Three Little Pigs, K decided to build the gnomes a house of sticks (there wasn’t any straw to be seen nor were there any brick but sticks there were plenty.)

She made them a comfy little bed of yellow leaves, with fluff for a pillow.
Two grand feathers mark the door.
She set a little table with Spekboom leaves (sourly scrumptious) and a yellow bell flower and an orange bell flower. Doesn’t the feast look inviting? There are two little logs for chairs.

She wanted me to get a photo of what a gnome would see upon finding such a house. Do you see the chimney?

Here is the proud contractor. She builds a good house of sticks, don’t you think?

To see our other Gnome Homes, look here and here.

Have a magical day.
