An NC State yard gnome!

This little guy is awesome. He gradudated from NC State in 1951 with a degree in Agriculture. His focus was in forestry and botany. He’s been traveling the world, guest lecturing at universities, and has made hidden appearances on UNC-TV’s In the Garden’s, with Bryce Lane.

He likes spring bulbs, fall colors, hard woods, long walks on the beach, sight-seeing, and ice skating.  He is very photogenic with telling facial expressions.

Every State fan should have one of these in their home or yard. If I get one for Christmas, I think I’ll take him bowling at the Champs Sports Bowl.
