Just thought you might like to see my latest attempt -- I finally put it right next to the house so I can enjoy it and play with it more. Love the new path of miniature bricks, and it won't fall apart like the pebbles from last year did. It looks a bit better each year, I think, although it won't be long before I'll have to move some of the conifers and even hosta -- they are getting too big! Thanks in advance for looking - Dax

Dax that is precious! I know you had fun making it. Do you remember the name of the mini Hosta near the snail with the fairly on its back? I want to order some mini Hosta's and can't decide which ones would be best. Love your choice of plants.

Thanks so much - I don't get on the forums often - most of the time, I don't get the picture taken! I'm sorry, but I don't know the name of the tiny hosta -- I just went to Culver's - a local nursery - and picked up miniatures of plants and dwarf conifers -- they had a very good selection. Dax

Lovely grouping of colors and textures.
Is the garden visible for passerby's?
I know you said it was close to the house.

Thanks so much for the nice comments -- no, it is not visible from the street, it's right across the patio from the front door, and probably 75 ft. from any public viewing. Unfortunately, around here, there have been some garden artifacts stolen, so I'm quite careful -- here's a pic from last year showing the house -- Dax

That's so cool.
Makes me want to set aside a spot for one in my garden.
My grand-daughter would love it!

Spectacular! Such detail and the plantings are fab. Just got my house about finished and have a long way to go, thanks for the ideas.
