I had been told to check my peonies for ants before taking into the house, but I wasn't warned about gnomes!:):):)

So wonderful and what a nice guy inside!
Looking to its corolla I guess it's a peonia transoctuagenaria as scientific name, commonly known as Eighty+aged Peony. with reference to an artrager it is said to remind ....:D

80+: I think the gnome left his tree house to camp out in the cooler peony for a couple days during a very warm spring!
Caesar: I'm not sure exactly which type of peony this is, as it came with our house! It is a tree peony, and it is the first one I had ever seen. We moved into our house before it bloomed and I was amazed at the huge flowers.
Jasmine: Luckily, he doesn't seem to hurt any of the plants. In fact, I think it is his magic that keeps my garden going!
Magen:Thank you! I haven't done too many people in my work. I was very pleased with the way he turned out, so now I will start to do more.
semd74:Thank you! I have a couple of azaleas around it that are the same color and bloom at the same time.
