COLD OPEN Grover attempts to water some flowers, but ends up with a face full of water from the uncooperative hose.

SCENE Elmo welcomes the viewer on his way to Abby's fairy garden, where she'll be helping him grow his own magical plants. He shows off the seeds and pot he was told to bring, then he and Abby sing a song about the fun they'll have in her garden.

SCENE cont'd Elmo arrives at the garden, amazed at all the wonderful plants Abby's concocted. She grows some wildflowers for him on the spot. Elmo notices his pot and seeds are now missing and Abby suspects Jerome the Garden Gnome, her new purchase, is up to it. Elmo doesn't understand; gnomes are inanimate. Jerome, however, is a living magical garden gnome, who states he did take Elmo's stuff and will give them back if he plays some of his games. Elmo agrees and the games begin.

SCENE cont'd For the first game, Jerome magically sprouts a potato, onion and carrot from the ground and tells Elmo to remember the order. Elmo thinks he can, but Jerome attempts to distract him by having he and Abby dance with the plants.
