To a gnome, there are few things luckier than butterflies, especially the tiny fluttery sort. It is said that if a butterfly kisses you then you will have a life time of success at whatever you want to do. And so it is not uncommon to see the wee folk lounging about in the butterfly fields hoping for a quick little peck. But look what's happening now! All the butterflies are gathering around one tiny little gnomeling! Her parents are so thrilled with her arrival (they've waited such a long while), and like any parent, they want her future filled with love and adventure (two great measures of success) so they brought her here to see... perhaps one butterfly might get close enough? By the looks of it, that is no problem. The wee gnomeling squeals with delight at the fluttering chaos around her. Surely it's a sign that this baby has a bright future ahead of her! It's obvious she's loved by all, and that's a good start.
