As promised, here are a selection of gnomes from the Aussie Icons-themed Floriade. Gnome decorating is one of the best things about our annual flower show thingy, and the first thing we head for when we go through the gates.
There were a lot of gnomes with sunscreen and sunglasses on, lots of corked hats, a few Gold Logies (just painted all gold), and a number of classics, such as
The Banomas in Pyjamas
Gnome Kelly (there were a few of these. This was my favorite)
Gnoma Everage (there were a lot of these) and Steve Gnomin. Steve was also a great favorite, and I captured a couple of variations...
Another Steve. I like his hair.
And an absence of Steve. Without labels, I suspect these are Bob and Bindi.
Then there were the more special Aussie Icons:
Kath n Kim
Johnny Howard, looking spectacularly normal
Either trying to be a lizard or something from Priscilla. I suspect the latter.
The Three Siblings...
... and The Gnome that ate Canberra
And then there were the extra special gnomes,
At the time we thought this was the Magic Pudding, but now I think it's a meat pie.
Marvellous Mr Squiggle
and my absolute favorite,
Florence Broadnome (or is that Florence Gnomehurst?)
One day I will enter this competition. I hereby make it one of my life goals.
