I just finished this miniature garden today. It took quite a while to make because of the resin "water" needing to dry after each layer of resin. I hope you like it.

Thanks Sally, it's a lot prettier in person. My camera phone doesn't do it justice.

I love it, very nice. I have the 5 foot tall version of that same statue, it's under an arbor too!
You just gave me a great idea, how about a "real" miniature koi pond?
Something with goldfish in it!
I may have to work on that one.

Joyce, did you make the pot? It looks like an interesting shape is why I ask.
This is just so cute, I love the little "spilled" pot.

No. The 3 pots were a gift from a friend. I've seen them at Hobby Lobby tho. I mixed soil with resin so the spilled pot won't lose it's dirt. Also the one with the trowel in it. I bought the container from Plow and Hearth. It is a self watering planter but the soil tends to sour near the bottom if aquarium charcoal is not added.

Thanks Bev, Janit said I was in first place for best container garden until the last few minutes of the contest and 2 more votes came in for another garden which caused me to get Honorable Mention. I don't mind because it was such a fun contest and there were so many lovely gardens entered.

Bev the bed pan was rusting and poisoning the plants so I had to take it apart and try the galvanized container. Hope this works better, but I just love the idea of the bed pan. :0(

Sorry to hear about the bedpan mini, but thanks for the info! I never thought of the rust hurting the plants! I have a little house roof that I was encouraging to rust and planned to clear seal it. I'm finding out now that if I let it rust as much as I wanted, the sealer won't stick to it. I guess I need to just paint it to get the affect I want.
