We've been making a daily walk to a little woods by our house, checking up on the forest gnomes. There is no doubt, if you ask my little ones, that we've seen the proof. We found this in the woods:
A gnome house. Coplete with a blanket, some milkweed fluff, and food stores tucked up in the rafters. The kids were amazed and we've gone back every day and seen the changes the gnomes have made while we were away.
Sage brings a clipboard and makes notes, determining the size and habits of the gnomes. Lupine runs around placing food and flowers where the gnomes will find them. We made two gnomes homes of our own and sage found a half-eaten berry on the porch of his the next day. So they appreciated his architecture. (Mine not so much.)
Happy gnome and fairy searching. May each day be magical.
