One Large and Ugly Garden Gnome

I wanted to wish my readers in the United States a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.

During my weekend plans, I will be traveling past what I consider to be the largest and ugliest lawn ornament I have ever seen.

I finally took a snapshot of it, so I thought I would share this monstrosity with others.

It is huge. Probably about ten feet tall, although I have never measured it. Click on the image so that you can see it blown up real big to get a true picture of how truly ugly it is.

I call it the BFGG. Similar to Roald Dahl's BFG, but while the letter B stands for Big, the letter F does not stand for Friendly.

Must Not Sleep. Garden Gnome will eat me.

...what is it? A rain shelter?

My goodness, I think our homeowners association would get rid of this thing if it ever showed up. I don't even like those little gnomes with the red hats.

I suppose someone could stand under that thing during a rain storm.

I can't imagine that it was purchased to serve that purpose however.

Sun Singer,

I am with you. I do not care for even the small garden gnomes, let alone one who is the size of an enormous shopping mall Santa.

That thing is not in a subdivision, so no homeowner's association CC&Rs are in effect. I do not think it is even a village, but more of a hamlet. We pass by that monstrosity on our way to and from the coast.

Each time I see it, the gnome's paint looks just a little more chipped and faded than the time before.

I hope that it was not a mass produced item because I do not want to see it anywhere else I visit.

I'm sorry to have to tell you that you are mistaken. It is quite famous; it was featured in "Better Gnomes and Gardens."
