This is the best Gnome I have ever seen. Is he stone?

Yes he is stone.When i was in north London i helped my sister renovate her overgrown garden.It had about a dozen massive rose bushes, one eight feet high.Lots of foxgloves.A six foot rosemary bush.Loads of daffodils around the edges.A large tree that towered over her neighbours house, and covered her shed.
I dug a side border along the front fence, weeded, trimmed the rose bushes.
Under a mucky table in leaves and mud was this gorgeous gnome.I got it from Jawsys house.
I am waiting photos of her garden to see what colours all the rose bushes are!
It was an old fashioned garden i thought as i worked it.I felt some nostalgia for the man who loved roses.I worked with the design he left.Just adding one border.
I added a lavender plant, and lots of bedding plants.Geraniums i think.
I lost my wedding ring digging the border!Sallyanne was not pleased when i rang to tell her..
