Drunken gnomes and other guests

I opened the door this morning to find this mess on the front stoop.

The gnomes have arrived at Pixie Hill. 

For a gang of messy drunks they are actually pretty quiet. Hopefully I can convince them to move the celebrations to another part of the property because this is not a good first impression.

They aren't the only new arrivals here...

The garden is dotted with loads of new (and newly renovated) fairy houses.

Some of them are quite fancy! I'm almost certain that No.21 Pixie Hill is the home of a house brownie. It's just the right size and is very neatly kept.

Although we don't often get to see and chat with the wee folk, it sure is nice to know that they are here and that they have returned for another season.


  1. I would love to see your enchanted (and enchanting) garden in "real life!" Your creations are a true delight!

  2. Typical Gnomes. . . the Foster Brooks of the wee folk world! Seriously these little ones have got to find a nice, out of the way tree stump or rock outcropping to have their little fĂȘtes and soirĂ©es! Front stoop indeed. . . that's just a bit familiar of them, you know? : )

  3. Nicola, you make me smile every day! Thank you for making the world a happier place!

  4. They are getting a tiny bit bolder, aren't they? Nice to know tho, that they are having a good time, living in your garden. "Prime real estate"
    how can they not love it??? Fun hearing about them, the naughty and the good...

  5. Oh ho!! I wondered where my Chianti went. Thuggery!!
