mini/fairy/dollhouse, honey I shrunk the garden!
...so you've got some tiny plants, and daggone they're cute. BUT what if you made a tiny garden scene with them? You'd have a mini garden. Put some little sprites or fairies and it's a fairy garden. Put it next to a dollhouse, or put a dollhouse IN it, and it's a dollhouse garden. Whatever style appeals to you, how cool is this for people who don't have a ton of space - or just need another niche addiction? Can't afford to visit a rain forest? Make a tiny one! Don't have a back yard? Make one in a pot!
Here are some pics from a great store I found that has a section devoted to tiny gardens/tiny plants. The individual plants are those I've acquired in the past week (so far) to prepare to attempt to create a couple of "honey I shrunk the gardens!"
A mini garden in a red pot:
All of the following pics until otherwise indicated are detail close-ups from a "giant mini garden."
These tiny pots are smaller than a dime and have real LIVE plants in them!
I hope my son didn't do this...
The whole thing at once:
A mini garden in a bird bath:
Detail of birdbath garden:

Will post pics when there's more (some) progress... Are you feeling inspired, enabled, enlightened, amazed? Check all 4 for me!
