Well, bless my heart, it's DONE!
I really did want to get this completed a couple of months ago, but I just didn't have that feeling of wanting to create.
A trip to Michael's found me all sorts of little things on sale for 40% 0ff, including this little round "handled tray" in one of my favorite shades of green..for my patio table. (Again you can see how carefully I stage my photo's! Not!)
Second little Fairy Garden is well under way! Just needs a few more cutsie little things...
A wee little cottage with shutters that open and close. A local artist painted this tiny abode. Remind me to show you the precious paintings of Holly Hocks and little critters around the cottage. Not certain this little cottage will stay..as it is a work of art and I would hate to have it damaged...
The stepping stones for the path were found at a garage sale on Saturday...for 25cents.
It will look prettier as the plants mature...
I think..I need an arbor? Perhaps some moss? There is time...this is just the beginning. These little gardens are constantly changing.
I just want to mention that I don't go crazy finding miniature plants. I just keep them trimmed.
It only took about 15 to 20 minutes to do the entire little garden once I had my plants.
NOW for the fun part...chosing the tiny accessories...like flower pots...perhaps a wishing well..who knows.
If you haven't tried one of these..you really should. Then entire bottom of this wheelbarrow is drilled full of holes...for good drainage. I had the little house on hand.
What is so nice is that you can just wheel this Fairy Garden to where ever you want it to be.
Works for me! :)
So...what do you think? I hope you like it. The wheelbarrow was $5.00 at a garage sale. PH fix the flat tire...and it sat for a couple of years. Yes, I procrastinate sometimes! :)
The soil was even on sale for 4.99 a bag. I bought two. The little plants cost the most, but I was frugal and chose ones with a lot of coverage. I love the unstructured look of my little gardens.
