It was simply called Gnomes and is by Wil Huygen. Both kids were young and using their imagination to picture gnome trails though my natives, where they would live, what animals they would find, etc... It was a vivid memory for me. A couple of years later my oldest son, who is in a junior naturalist program and very into natives, was asking me about ecotypes. Somehow in my brain these two stories connected and I came up with Great Natives Of Midestern Ecotype (GNOME) and began publishing a website/newsletter devoted to natives of the midwest. So- that is why I use that screen name and av.
Sorry, I don't know how the owl lost its eye.

Since my background is in English literature (way, way back when) and since I took Latin in high school (way, way, way back when), I thought it was a pun on the nominative case. With your interesting explanation, I now know to pronounce it gnome-native.

My favorite photo on your Flickr album is called "on a cupped hand." I hope you don't mind that I posted a link to it.

Thanks so much for sharing your amazing photography skills with us!!

Thanks so much, Becky. Actually, my garden is rather small, and most of the flowers are either single individuals or in very small groupings.

Of course I don't mind your linking to 'on a cupped hand.' That's very sweet of you.

I'll try to remember to enter some in your photo contests. Thanks.

Havalotta do you mean a hyperlink? Such as when Becky linked us to mimbravas on a cupped hand picture with the text?

I'm not sure how others here do it, and there's probably a button for it, but I would just insert a hyperlink code directly into my text. I can give you an example below, but I'll have to leave spaces between everything or it would just show up as the link. When I intend to insert it into a post I would do so without any spaces between anything except the on a cupped hand part.

[ url = h t t p : //www.flickr.com/photos/mimbrava/25165744/in/set-485860/ ] " on a cupped hand " [ / url ]

If I had typed that without spaces except for those I indicated above it would look like this "on a cupped hand"

Here's another example. I'ts exactly as it should look in your text window except I used these symbols < and > in place of [ and ] and a href instead of url.
<a href=http://www.flickr.com/photos/mimbrava/25165744/in/set-485860/>"on a cupped hand"</a href>

The address I'm using is copied from the address bar on mimbravas flickr page of the picture on a cupped hand.
This would work for you, but we'll see if someone can point us to the magical button.

3 minutes too late...lol. Refer to Becky's post above mine
