Population explosion

8 09 2013

It’s several years since we visited Gnomesville (Ferguson Valley, Western Australia), but we were out and about in the valley on Saturday after voting in the federal election. After having lunch at a brewery, we continued driving along Ferguson Road to the end where the big roundabout is — and where Gnomesville is. And the first thing we noticed was the massive population explosion!

From several hundred gnomes (at a guess) the last time we visited, the population is now in the thousands and extends quite some way along the road verge, down into the creek, up trees, on top of logs, under logs, and there were even some ‘outer suburbs’ some distance from the main settlement. There was even a bird 😉

And while I was there taking photos, some classic cars turned up, including a GORGEOUS 1951? Buick!

I would feel right at home!!! This area (S.E. MN/N.E. IA) is home to a high Norwegian population and towns (such as Spring Grove, MN and Decorah, IA) abound with such little figures!!!!
