Gnomes

Where did the tradition of garden gnomes come from.Are they all friendly or are some malevolent?  This gnome is sitting in the roof top garden of a canal boat.  Perhaps he should have had a fishing line rather than a pipe.

I've seen a lot of garden gnomes but never one on a boat. Nice find.

Have you read Wil Huygen's fantastic illustrated book Gnomes? It will answer all your questions (and convince you that woodland creatures are real!)
