The Tyler Arboretum‘s Magical Habitats exhibition, which officially opens on Saturday, promises to be enchanting. When our assistant art director, Steven Cominsky, and I visited last week, a few of the installations were already in place, and we were especially charmed by this little gnome home in the middle of the woods. Have a peek inside. **Be sure to click on all of the photos on the left!

    Oh wow, that is too cute and it must take a lot of time to put together. I bet the kids really love it.

    Oh my, that is sooo precious...absolutely enchanting! We have a few gnomes residing in our gardens.
    My favorite stands under a garden bench with a hoe in hand, violets planted in front of him so it appears he's tilling the soil around the violets.

    This is very creative and artistic we all need to get out of the box once in awhile.

    michelle, did they Tyler staff make this? or is it various artists exhibiting? these people need to be creditted!! Too Much! I am not a cutesy-gnome fan but this fits right into its natural surroundings. what a treat.

    The historic and famous New England Flower Show has had some amazing miniature landscapes submitted over the years. I fondly remember those of Warren Leach and Debbie Hogan of Tranquil Lake Nursery in Rehoboth MA. This piece and theirs- made me ache to create a mini landscape!
    best,

    I'm with Califus... and I would bet they even come with fireplaces for those damp Spring evenings!
