Anyone else being invaded by gnomes? In the last six months, over a dozen have taken up residence in my front yard.

You must live in Gnome, AK, er...make that AZ. ;-)

I have very small gnomes climbing a rope trying to get into my garden stuff. Once in a while they get into a pot under the plant.

Mysteriously, a small gnome riding on a little white owl showed up in a potted plant on my front patio... don't know when he flew in...

Gnomes from Aridzona went and invaded Iraq back in 2008;

Sadly some were gnome-napped and treated brutally there , others suffered from PTSD never to be the same again .

That was some story and the outcome was great. Val, watch out, gnomes are very addictive and there is NO 12 step program.

Seems to me that those gnomes need some houses. Do you just have them living under the plants in your garden? They seem kind of, uh, homeless.

Crista, the little gnomes built themselves a house over the weekend, but the bigger guys prefer to maintain a "Tramp Camp" and sleep under the stars. They have posted a warning sign, though.

Actually, Val, I like it.

Got some more gnomes today, the family and the reader came from Kmart and the frog rider came from Big Lots!, all on clearance, so I spent less than $25.

That's a dreadful little object, frogy. Try to keep him out of your garden, I'm sure he must be destructive.

None of the other gnomes have gone missing, so they may be harmless.
