Those funny little Guardians of the Garden with their pointy red hats have been collected by gardeners for nearly two centuries. Imported from Germany, and we’re thinking the Black Forest here, garden gnomes became very popular in Britain and other countries. 

The Gnome Gnation has spread its influence from garden guarding to online gaming. In the popular Sims4 game, players can purchase gnomes to protect not only flowers and vegetables but the entire property. There are modern computerized gnomes to guard swimming pools, kitchens, bedrooms, and even the family graveyard.
