Gnii in your garden

Gnii are shy and charming creatures.


At this time of the year, gnii suffer from the cold and damp, although the action of frost breaking up stones benefits them in the longer term. While some have tried to claim that they are an ill omen, gnii are gentle creatures, their bobbing lights charming at night, and their presence an essential part of the Founders Day celebrations.

Make sure the gnii in your garden are thriving. Put out your candle stubs for them and check that  there is exposed rock for them to feed on and play with.

Currently there are a flotilla of gnii feeding by the harbour. They appear to be using driftwood and seaweed, burning brightly and for short periods and falling dramatically from the sky like tiny shooting stars. I wonder if this is how the island looked before the advent of people, and candles.

  1. First the black-eyed wheese/meese or whatever (I can’t remember for sure – sorry), the apparent common-place state of affairs involving ghosts and demons – now gniis. This place is really strange. Have you seen the book “The Girl with Glass Feet”? I got an advance copy through Amazon Vine, but it’s available now. Check it out: (this link will take you to the page with info about the book) – this book also features an isolated area with … shall we say strange? Yes – strange creatures to be found. I think you’d like it!
