Gnomes DO have a function after all
Apparently the word G.N.O.M.E stands for Guarding Naturally Over Mother Earth and they have been around for centuries

Any that would have the temerity to appear in our garden wouldn't be!

A tragic demise at the hands of a lawnmower-wielding Victor Meldrew would be the result!

There is a Gnome sanctuary in Devon, it's well worth a visit if your down that way, they do appreciate it if you wear a gnome hat so that you don't look out of place, they accept you better then adn let you see them.
