This is for Houston Garden Girl since she posted a hilarious video regarding a new invasive species. I think it's done by a botanical garden! I promise you'll laugh. :-)
You will have to watch the video at  to get the yard art connection in the picture I'm posting. She passed it on after seeing it on Plano Prairie Garden...another garden in the know (or shall we say in gnome). Visit at to see a great conservation garden filled with native prairie grasses up in the Dallas region.

I commented to Houston Garden Girl that pink flamingos were another invasive species we have to deal with here in the south.
This yard has both.


  1. That was hilarious! There's actually a book that just came out to the same effect!

  2. I don’t understand why people think the video is funny. The gnome invasion is a serious reality.

  3. Ha, ha I will watch out for invasive gnomes when they reach southern Sweden!
    Du er dansk! My husband and his family are danes, from Jutland and Bornholm. Northern Jutland is quite different to Fyn, Fyn is like a big garden green and welcoming and northern Jutland is hard weather and wind.
    Have you visited Denmark?
    best regards Sophia

  4. Thanks for spreading the word! The pink flamingo follows the same migratory patterns as the gnome, they are often seen together.



I always appreciate your comments & questions! Happy Gardening from David/ Tropical Texana
