Goin’ on a gnome hunt

I’d love to drop by the Morton Arboretum’s Children’s Garden and take part in their wee gnome hunt. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Find all the gnomes hiding in the Children’s Garden in the drop-in activity “Going on a Gnome Hunt.” Most of the real animals will be hibernating for winter, but we have make-believe ones for a fun sort of “hunt.”

A cousin of mine, Canton, used to help out with the trimming in the maze garden. He always had a tremendous sense of direction.

Gnomes just wanna have fun

I had never been to a music festival before and this past weekend I traveled to Oxegen. Gnomes can be great camping companions as we can watch over tents. It was entertaining for me to observe the humanfolk struggle to survive outside for just a few short days.

Gnomes are known to enjoy a wee tipple now and then, but I was quite surprised by how much drink was about. At my size, one bottle is quite enough. My wee ears are still ringing, though I met many new friends who might just appear on the blog in the next few days.

Pimp My Gnome

With all the reality television shows focused on humanfolk, I’m relieved to discover the Pimp My Gnome project which looks to create new looks for gnomes. I have to admit the standard issue outfit makes us instantly recognisable, but it isn’t helpful if you’re trying to mix in with the crowd, or show your support at a Star Wars memorabilia convention.

Three cheers to the wee folks that make up NoDa and if you want to see some of the results, follow this wee gallery link.
