I like gnomes. I’m not ashamed to admit it.
I’m sure that in some parallel universe or fairly recent past life I was kitschy housewife with plastic pink flamingos on the lawn and garden gnomes out back. While I don’t like these ornaments enough to actually own them in this life, I enjoy teasing Theo about the possibility. But I do think garden gnomes are cute. Imagine my delight when I heard about a place in Australia called Gnomeville. I’m certain Theo was holding out on me when it comes to this tourist attraction.
Gnomeville is outside a small town called Dardanup in the South West region of Western Australia. I don’t know why gnomes have taken over, but I do know that I want to see this for myself and add to the collection. I regret now not having purchased a Mickey Mouse Gnome while I was at the Disney Marketplace. He would have made a fine addition to this
Wordtrip 2011 has some nice photos of this kooky little place. Fun!
How do you feel about garden gnomes? Have you ever been to Gnomeville? Any plans to go?
