Garden Gnomes – Central Florida Style

First, we want to announce the first ever giveaway on Fleeting Architecture will begin tomorrow! Be sure to tune in and follow the entrance instructions to win something special!

I don’t know why garden gnomes are so popular nor why one can spot plastic flamingos somewhere in every neighborhood. But here in Central Florida, garden art takes a whole new direction. Sometimes there is more cement and ceramic art than plants in the miniature front yards. I can’t really describe them. So I will simply pass along their photos. There is so much natural beauty down here, so we have to “even it out” somehow. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it!
