You may have heard about the mysterious little door the appeared at the base of a tree in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park last spring.  After drawing curious visitors to the park and making international headlines, park officials ordered that the door be removed.  It must have taken the wee elfin creatures several months to move east, because in August, several gnome homes appeared here in Kansas City.  I joked with Better Half that the gnomes were able to afford so much more house here in the Midwest than in the Bay Area, apparently a one to five ratio.

Here are three shots of the first gnome home, the one with the yellow door.  I hope you come back to my blog over the next four days as I share shots of the other four gnome homes.

Gnome Home with a Yellow Door Photo #3.  Like all of the gnome homes, this door shares a positive, inspirational message.
