Gnomevember at New England Botanic Garden

The New England Botanic Garden is once again abuzz with the return of the beloved gnomes—and this year, they’ve brought reinforcements! These larger-than-life concrete figures stand proud at over 2 feet in height and weigh in at a hefty 60 pounds. Cast from molds right within the Garden, these gnomes served as blank canvases for artists across New England.
