Years ago my Uncle Otto had a huge boulder delivered to his yard. He put pavers around the front for a small flower bed and we picked out flowers from the greenhouse. One year it was Marigolds, Zinnias and lots of Moss Roses and one year it was Daisies. He painted Welcome on the boulder in Norwegian of course and had a chain saw carver carve him a Nisse. A Norwegian Nisse is a mischievous sprite that protects a farmstead or home.
The first year it was looking really good and the photo came along in a Christmas card.
Otto chained the Nisse down to a huge anchor in the ground behind the boulder.
We enjoyed seeing it every time we drove by.
Sadly someone came by and cut the chain and took the Nisse.
