As the happy keeper of Gnome Empire in Ontario, Canada I was anxious to have a few gnomes volunteer to help establish a Gnome Empire Outpost at the vacation home. I looked high and low to no avail. I was becoming quite discouraged ready to put out an SOS for any gnomes willing to join the Gnome Empire Outpost. Just when I was giving up hope these 2 friendly gnomes popped out of the woodwork to volunteer their services. I was ecstatic at their generosity so took them up on their very kind offer. Now what many don't realize is a gardener does not choose what gnomes come into their lives. Rather the gnome chooses the gardener. Gnomes are very helpful creatures but only to those who love the little ones. They bring a mystical magic to the garden that's hard to capture through any other means. I'm so glad these gnomes decided to join the Outpost!
