Respecting Flowers from the Past
Most gnomes in the community focus their attention on the abundance of life in the garden, which comes as no surprise. After all, it's easy to see the beauty in life. This sweetly twisted gnomette, though, thinks it's important to remember our loved ones from the past too. She has always liked things a little edgy and is able to see beauty in the completion of the life cycle. She understands that the garden would have gno seeds to grow if gnot for the flowers that came before. Gnaturally, it's her job to tend to the plants and flowers that die in the garden. It's such an important job because all flowers die every year and if somegnome did not take care of them, they would not be able to return to bloom in the spring. It goes without saying that gnot all gnomes understand her fascination, but that does gnot matter much to her. She understands better than most that the true enchantment of the garden comes from the completion of life's cycle and that would gnot be possible without flowers from the past. She is honored to play such an important role in giving them the respect they deserve.
