Today is the last day of blogging for gnome week. I mentioned in Day 1 that gnomes run on a different time schedule and gnome week was so special that it had an extra day in it. It might be the last day of this series of gnome blogs, but I assure you this will not be the last you hear about the gnomes. They are so invasive they will not tolerate being left out for too long. So for now, here is the last gnome and lesson of the week.
Gnome of the Day: Herbert
Herbert is a very special gnome. He's dressed quite differently than the other gnomes. He's sporting a green hat with flowers and lady bugs on it, a tie dye shirt, blue nail polish and lady bug goulashes. He isn't quite as old as the other gnomes in the yard. You can tell because his beard hasn't turned white yet. Herbert is a herb expert and is trained in using herbs for medical purposes. He uses his knowledge whenever the other gnomes feel sick and when an animal in the neighborhood is hurt. Today, he is helping out in the office at work. He's been noticing our houseplants need some extra care lately and he has volunteered himself to water, fertilize and trim all the houseplants. In exchange we are letting him pick through the seed packets to use in his herb garden.
Gnome Lesson of the Day: Gnome Liberation Movement
I think this gnome liberation movement fails to recognize that gnome owners usually care deeply about the gnomes in their yard. They took great care in picking out the right gnome and the right place in the yard they should dwell. Together I think that gnomes and people bring each other joy in both their lives. So take precaution! Its great to be excited about your gnomes but make sure the person you are bragging too isn't part of the Gnome Liberation Movement or you might not see your gnome again.
