Georges was a very old man who lived in Saint-Clément, Normandy and owned a garden gnome named Hans. Georges maintained his garden with great care, talking to Hans during this activity. He painted Hans every winter and washed him every day. Every winter solstice, Georges said, "So, Hans, we live to see yet another spring," sitting on an oak bench and drinking cognac. Hans declared that he would never desert Georges, though he might like to travel through Europe after Georges died.
