Gnomes with Homes

(Photo by Cepheus)
Although gnomes mostly prefer to remain hidden, Penn’s Woods (aka “Pennsylvania”) has recently experienced an uptick of visible gnome homes.

Builder Steve Hoke recently created about 40 such domiciles,  then strategically placed them “in tree roots, in hollow logs and on stumps” within a Pennsylvania park.  Park officials, however, began to wonder whether these mini-houses might negatively “affect wildlife habitat.”

Eleven of these homes were then moved from their original locations.  Some claim that they were taken to another park.  Others wonder whether the Gnome Liberation Front had something to do with it.

After all, gnomes have feelings too.  Who wants to spend their life being gawked at by park patrons?  Or presiding over rose bushes?  How much cozier it must be to simply nestle beneath a steadfast rock…
