For the first time in 100 years The Royal Horticultural Society has temporarily lifted a ban on garden gnomes at the prestigious Chelsea Garden Show. Needless to say that we were thrilled when we got the news. Uncles Jorge and Jeffery posed in front of Big Ben before heading over to the main event. Once there they meet with other gnomes from around the world and posed for the press as they made their way down the garden deck. Pablo from Brasil even got a make over from Sir Elton John himself. Mickey from Ireland even helped out while at the show. While many Brits that attended have claimed our appearance at the show to be ”tacky” and “unwelcoming” I see it as a step in the right direction. One small step for gnomes everywhere. I dream of the day when all gnomes are free to roam the garden, where gnomes and porcelain birds can live together harmoniously. Where we will not be judge for the pointy-ness of our hat but the strength of our character. Long Live the GGLF (Garden Gnome Liberation Front)
