There is a difference you know. Like a country boy vs. a city slicker. The woodland gnomes typically wear a blue jacket, brown belt and pants. The garden gnomes wear red with the same brown belt. Garden gnomes seem to be more somber and tell big stories. Sometimes the two visit each other’s homes. The garden gnomes think they’re smarter, but the woodland gnomes are very skilled in everything. These are booth good gnomes to have. Of note, they both like a lot of beer, but do not drown like the snails, fortunately. Put out the beer!
Recommended reading: For those who want a perfect gnome reference source, a book called “Gnomes” by Wil Nuygen, published 1977 by Harry N. Abrams. Excellent! My reference.
