Ohio in Bloom and Have a Great Weekend!

A gnome, or garden gnome is a magical creature commonly known to infest the gardens of wizarding households. The correct taxonomical name for gnomes is, purportedly, Gernumbli gardensi, or sometimes referred to as Gernumblies. They are found throughout Europe and North America. A gnome in the Muggle world is an inanimate statue that look like a small Father Christmas.

While our house in Canada is still shivering a little from late winter weather,Spring has already started in the South of Ohio since a couple of weeks. How we enjoy that lovely weather! And all those new trees and plants we discover.

Terwijl ons huis in Canada nog een beetje staat te bibberen in t late winterweer, is de Lente in t zuiden van Ohio al een paar weken aan de gang. We genieten zo van dat lekkere weer! En dan de ontdekking van al die nieuwe bomen en planten.

When walking with my sons the other day, I found these strange and funny plants. Can’t be rare because I see them everywhere under trees etc.

Laatst wandelde ik met mijn zonen en vond deze grappige planten. Ze zijn vast niet zeldzaam want ik zie ze overal onder de bomen enzo.

“What can this be?” I was mumbling to myself while taking pictures.

My sons..a bit fed up with waiting for mom with camera all time, stated with confidence: “Well, can’t you see? These are little umbrella’s for garden gnomes!”

“Wat kan dit nu zijn?” mompelde ik in mezelf terwijl ik foto’s nam. Mijn zonen…een beetje verveelt met wachten op hun mam met camera de hele tijd, verklaarden op zelfverzekerde toon: ” Nou, dat je dat niet ziet! Dit zijn de parasols voor de tuinkabouters!”

How about that! They were right!

Nou zeg! Ze hadden gelijk!

Love and Liefs, Johanna.
