Elves In My Backyard: a Photostory

Have you ever wondered where elves live?  I caught them on camera.  In my backyard.


I was sitting in my backyard, admiring my shoes, when I heard a sound.  I ran to investigate.  And when I found the source, I couldn’t believe my eyes!

“Ooooh, look at this tree!  It needs water!  There you go. Cherry Blossom, come here!”   A blond elf in a fancy white cape pulled water out of the air and poured it on the tree’s roots.

“That’s tree number… I don’t know, 999?”  A brunette elf in a pink cape appeared, looking slightly grumpy.  “These flowers are much prettier.”

“You just think that because you’re a flower elf,” pouted the blond elf.

“I still don’t see why we have to stop at every tree in creation to care for it, Rinna!” replied Cherry Blossom.

“Queen Elaina told us the Wise One was here someplace, and these trees are in shoddy shape,” said Rinna,  (Excuse me!  I thought.) “It’s my duty as a water elf to care for them.”

“Let’s not keep the queen, then,” suggested Cherry.

I followed Cherry and Rinna discreetly, half-curious.  They appeared to be looking for “the wise one”, whoever that was.  I wanted to see what creepazoid was living in my yard.

Cherry was looking everywhere, but Rinna seemed more interested in the trees.

“This is so cozy!” said Rinna.

“I’ll try it out,” said Cherry,”WOW!”

“Is the Wise One here?”  mumbled Cherry.

At  3pm, Rinna suggested they sit and rest.

“That sounds great!” said Cherry.

“In a tree!” squealed Rinna.

“You’ve got to be kidding me.” muttered Cherry.

“Isn’t this nice?” said Rinna.

“I suppose.  But where do you think the Wise One could be?” Cherry said.

“Hmmm.  Maybe he’s hiding from us.”

I heard a low chuckle from the ground.  Apparently, so did they.  Rinna and Cherry hopped right out of the tree and saw…

“IT’S THE WISE ONE!!!” screamed Rinna.

“Sheesh, calm down.” Cherry held her hands to her ears.

The garden gnome??? I thought.

“Wise One, our Queen Elaina wants you to tell us your secret: how do you stay in the human world so long without anybody noticing you?”

“Well, people here like me as a garden decoration.  I’ve divided my magic amongst all garden gnomes, and now I can never die as long as someone has a garden gnome.”

That makes sense.

“I see you have a friend,” said the Garden Gnome, gesturing towards me.


They both turned around… and spotted me.

“Have you been spying the whole time?!?” Cherry fumed.

“Well…yes-…” I stammered.

“Oh my.  Well, just don’t follow us into Elfwyld, and keep the gnome.”  Rinna said practically.

“Let’s go before any more pests come!” Cherry said.

“Bye!” Rinna said.
