March Madness - Spring?

Gnomes in the Garden

The woodland gnomes look forward to the night time temperatures  climbing up to warmer Spring like temperatures. All are looking to say goodbye to winter and the snow! Very early vegetables are starting to pup up through the dirt. In a week or so, a few flowers may bloom. Fresh flower for the gnomes!

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re months away from even planting most vegetables. Still too wet and cold, but Spring fever is catching. Gnomes are somewhat dependent on us to plant and grow the vegetables. We accuse the moles of stealing our young plants, but it might just as well be a little gnome plucking a young plant for his family dinner. Plant some big fat radishes or carrots and watch. After a long and cold winter, the gnomes await Spring like we do. They look forward to getting into my garden just like I do. Don’t know if they like rhubarb, but I won’t  miss a few stalks.

I saw some robins, so the worms are starting to move about. I read that gnomes help the robins find the big worms. Must be a little game. Don’t think worms are on gnomes’ favorite food list, but then again, Mac and cheese isn’t either.

March-  in like a lion, out like a lamb. We’ll see. time to get outside and clean up the fallen branches. Spring will come and that’s good news for our little friends in the woods. All is well in our Whimsical Woods.
