A garden gnome that vanished seven months ago has returned home — complete with snaps from a round-the-world adventure.
Leprechaun Murphy turned up on owner Eve Stuart-Kelso’s doorstep with a smart photo album charting his adventures in 12 countries and three continents.
Pics feature him abseiling down a mountain, swimming in the sea and venturing into a croc-infested swamp.
Stuart-Kelso, a grandmother of three, also found a note explaining Murphy had left to see if there was more to life than "allowing passing cats to urinate on you."
Stuart-Kelso said of being reunited with him: "It was a wonderful cheery surprise."
