As many of you know I have a great luv of gardening. My big flower gardens are a lot of work. So my passion for miniature gardening began. With spring already here, I have been getting ready to plant 3 miniature gardens. I found really cute teacup planters on ebay. I found an entire garden set for $6 in a catalog. True miniature plants are quite expensive, so I'm always looking for small items I can decorate with. I decided to try some different types of trees this year. Here is my first completed garden. It features a Baldwin Variegated Hinoki Cypress and red thyme. It has a little more formal feel to it. Note the hidden birds nest, bunny, bird, bench and gazing ball.
Here is my second completed garden. It features a Moonfrost Canadian Hemlock, (has pink tips) red thyme and miniature daisies. I used my bargain catalog find in this one. It has so many pieces, I was astonished. It even has little gardening tools on one of the benches. And of course a bird, birdhouse, flower pots, wheelbarrow, tool shed, and the list goes on and on.
It's been a great hobby for me. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. The third garden is going to be the largest. My plants should arrive any day now. Woo Hoo!!!
