Roamy in Mushroom land, Pennsylvania!

Roamy arrived from Canada, nodded his cap and disappeared out in my yard for the longest time. I knew exactly where he was-with the gnomes and fairies. This ‘special’ group resides in the town (outskirts) next to Kennett Square, ‘The Mushroom Capital of the World’ where there is a  mushroom festival every September-the 26th year is this year! There are lots of ‘magical’ mushrooms in our garden! Roamy is posing here on one.

Roamy in particularly liked this guy as he looked so ‘cool’ with his shades and cocktail. Said he loves Jimmy Buffet-no kidding! : )  Roamy knows I love gardening and he said he wants to be a florist-so he stopped and smelled the Sweet Bay Magnolia:

Checked out some petunias:

And wondered if he could take some of these viney things with him so he could pretend to be Jack in the Beanstalk:

Note from the Roaming Gnome Keeper of the Blog:
This post was much more extensive with great pictures and an extended journey,
but I had extreme difficulty publishing the post from her blog... so please
go visit her HERE for his entire visit.
Perhaps because that blog is wordpress, the post isn't compatable with blogger?
I usually copy and paste without difficulty.

Next up: Roamy in Arizona~


  1. Oh love seeing Roamy and reading about his adventures!!! xo

  2. I took Roamy to the Inner Harbor of Baltimore too which isn't shown here.

  3. Perhaps blogger was just having more issues. *sigh

  4. Love love love Baltimore! We used to live not far from it and soooo miss it. Thanks for this marvelous Roamy adventure. We used to live in Arizona too so will be visiting his next adventure too!.


  5. Thanks for coming over to my blog Di. We haven't been to Baltimore for years and did the touristy stuff plus a few suggestions from friends. I'm sorry it's not on this post and I sent the webmistress the entire html to cut and paste. I do think it was a blogger issue.

  6. Oh, my goodness, Roamy was in PA, my state.

  7. Hi Karen Sweetie...
    Roamy finally arrived. He got delivered to the wrong address (postman's mistake), and he arrived and was so HOT, 116 degrees today. We took a little tour of the yard, and I explained the 4th was coming, he will be leaving next Tuesday on July 5th. I have advertised on my blog for a new adventure home to send him to. I will be sending you the final pics of his visit here.

    He is so well behaved. I am working on a little sleeping bag for him to travel to his next home in, and I am going to try and make him a backpack that will hold some of his tiny treasures. I thought it would be fun to add a little something to the box.

    Please stop by and see his post. You are gonna love it. He sends his love to you. Thanks for sharing sweetie.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry and Roamy

  8. Great post with the wonderful characters.
    I just know that Roamy will have so much fun with Sherry and she'll make sure he stays cool.

  9. I am very happy to read your blog. I am visiting maryland so many times, because it is very near from my home. I go their every evening, It is best place to go in rainy sessions.
