Gnome Mail

Spring is trying to arrive here in central Ohio. It's getting warmer. You may remember that last fall I installed a little Gnome door on the foundation of my neighbors house and deck. My neighbors being Zinnia (6) and Dahlia (4). This was an innocent act on my part. But the girls really believe that Gnomes live there now. In fact the youngest has actually got down in the mud and put her ear to the door and announced that she could hear the Gnomes. The little white "packet" to the right of the window is a message.
Yesterday the girls told me that they had put a message up for the Gnomes to read. I slipped over and retrieved the message when they were gone. Here it is in the hand writing of Zinnia. Click on the photo to enlarge.
I next had to wait for the girls to leave, and then left a message for them from the Gnomes. They should have some fun with this when they get home. It sure looks like I've got some pen pals - Zinnia, Dahlia, and some Gnomes.

How sweet!
Tom, are you a grandpa? This sounds like a very grandpa-ish thing to do!

You are giving such a wonderful gift to these little girls. They will be telling the story of the gnomes under their deck to their children and grandchildren!

Those smart girls next door will next want to know where the gnomes got their computer and printer to print such a nice note!! : )

Now when the wild flowers bloom, you'll have to put some in a tiny cup and leave them outside the door. This is a wonderful game they will never forget!

When I first read about your gnome's door, I fell in love with the idea. I only wish I had some little ones living close to do something similar for them. What a treat this would be. I can't wait to hear what happens next in the gnome world! I think I may be having as much fun as the girls.
