Sentimental treasures - The Gnome Home, icon of one of the Eastern suburbs of Brisbane, Wynnum. Old Doug built the picturesque yard by himself, spending years working on the gnomes and little statues. It was his world, his gift to family and passers-by and his past time after retiring; 4 by-passes and increasing dementia didn't prevent him from dedicating every day much time and love to this place, that now his family wishes to preserve.
