Gnome There will always be a soft spot in my heart for gnomes. This particular gnome is quite cute and unassuming. My eye was naturally drawn to the bottom left corner at this pleasant surprise bathed in light.

These mischievous beings seem to pop up in unexpected places in peoples’ gardens. They are like little secrets and I fancy them coming to life when I’m not looking. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this as I have seen many gnomes decorate the lawns and gardens of my neighborhood. With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner, the gnome population is on the rise!

Thank you, The_Bustin_Bungalow, for sharing this photo with us! Check out more garden photos in their Garden: End of May gallery.
