Not So Mini

Early this spring, the girls and I designed and put together two miniature gardens. This isn't new to some of you, but for the rest, here is the short version.

M wanted a Fairy Garden, batted her eyes at Grandpa and obtained a used tractor tire. We aren't restricted by space, so while the scale is small, the overall gardens aren't so much. Some paint, a cubic yard of soil and one very tired Mommy later, we were planting. We chose a Fairy Tale theme for her fairy garden, and the three fairies are the story tellers. Many of the stations can be used to tell more than one story, so the girls can be creative as they play.

Not wanting to leave J out, but knowing that she doesn't want to have anything to do with fairies, we came up with the brilliant plan to create a miniature garden based on the clan territories of the cats in the Warriors book series by Erin Hunter (who is really 4 different people). Confused? Well, nevermind. It's plants and little cats. That's all you need to know.

Being the cheapskate that I am, we found ways to make more of the accesories for the gardens ourselves. Leftover cage wire is good for all sorts of things!
I managed to make mushrooms, but I don't think I have a future in sculpting.

I need to take another picture now that the plants have filled in the extra space. In spite of the drought, we've only lost one. The rest are overtaking the paths.
I wanted to do a Peter Rabbit-ish themed mini garden, but ran out of energy. Maybe next year.
