David - those are fabulous!!! You need to move to south Texas and be my next door neighbor!!! I don't get on Dave's much (blame work) but have noticed you always have great ideas with photos to prove it.
Dave- in designing your wonderful tiny gardens do you have a particular scale or do you eye-ball it as to what looks good together? I will have to build mine to go indoors in winter in zone 6 but plan to do a Gnome garden that will stay out except for the figurines as the snow and cold will be hard on them.
