..........I would never have thought I would be showing this again this soon with so many changes. I believe I said something in Lil Garden's reveal that left the impression that it was basically finished and also that I didn't want to be spending much money on this little project.
Well, I haven't spent much money but, several things have been added and some changes made. What happened is a day or so after the reveal, my daughter sent me an ad from ABC Distributing Company. If you know this company, you know they sell things a good bit lower than the same things would be elsewhere.
The ad was for a set of seven things for a miniature garden. The total price for the set was what about two of the pieces would be from a different store.
It so happened that one of the items was this arbor which is something I had already thought was needed, right up front here. It has turned out to be perfect - gives a good entrance and makes the walk look more like it belongs, too. Before I show more, I should list the other things from the set. Along with the arbor, I got a white fence, white bench, bird bath, welcome sign, a fairy and a watering can.
I got these two little boys from a local nursery for $2.00 each. The fairy that came with the set is too big. Plus, I didn't really want this to become a "fairy garden". I love the little boys and they are a good size.
The angel, which I already had, is over-sized but, I like it for the garden-angel.
Here you see the welcome sign and the watering can, also a bit large but it is a very nice watering can.
I really should get this grass mowed!
I like the combination of the white wooden fence and the metal one. And, now the whole garden is surrounded with fencing.
This glass cup is every bit of 1/2 inch tall.
I love the way the fence is reflected in the birdbath water. That is one thing missing in Lil Garden - birds.
The big birdhouse is still empty.
Here is the duck and egg. The duck seems to have chosen this corner to hang out in.
I think I had mentioned in the first post that I bought a wooden gate that didn't really work very well. Now, with the white fence, it does! I like it back here in the corner - the back entrance/exit.
The plants are all doing well, except the thyme didn't make it. I may try again to get some to root because it has the tiny leaves the garden needs. I have thought of one other thing that I would like to work in and that might be an excuse to show Lil Garden one more time a little later.
What do you think? Do you like the changes? Any suggestions.
