Last year with our yard beginning to take hold, I wanted to try something new this year. You know, something for added interest...like putting the old tree trunk remains to use. So over the Winter, I thought and thought. I'd read a few articles in garden magazines and decided to make something attractive with them. The base of our once 95' foot white pine will become a five foot wide flower pot...that one was easy. The Pres said he could knock that out in no time.
Yet I still had others that I needed to put to work for me. One in particular would be a perfect spot for a fairy garden. With a flat trunked base the two trees (one still snow covered) have intertwining roots creating a cave-like entrance. I'd planted some of my MIL's seed there last summer which I'm sure will add to the woodsy feel among the natural thick, lush ferns which adorn the area.
Then after emailing a few bloggers, they gave me an idea. I want to try my hand at Fairy Gardening! So, as they recommended, whenever I found coupons for Michaels, I would shop for another one or two of their miniatures that I could use.
Once Spring is here, I plan on making my dream a reality. Although with all my planning and dreaming, one minor problem seems to have occurred...
someone else had left their mark on it!!!
I realize these pix were taken when the white stuff was on the ground, but I just thought this little finch was so cute that I had to tell you the story!!!!
