VISITORS to Waterperry Gardens are in for surprise this week thanks to the appearance of eight gnomes.

The characters are dotted around the gardens, near Wheatley, in a half-term hunt for children.

Three-year-old Kal Mishra said: “I like their funny faces. I like the gnome’s big boots.

“They’re like mine, but I wouldn’t wear a bobble hat like they do.”

His grandfather Bill Truscott, from Buckingham, said: “We’re regular visitors to the gardens, but we’ve been away for a couple of weeks and it’s amazing to come back and see how much everything has shot up – it’s like a jungle.”

His wife Sandra added said: “It’s beautiful in good weather, but it is worth braving the weather on a less-than-promising day.

“There’s just so much to look at.”
