I think it is adorable, and I'd have picked one up, too :0)

I'll bet you could overwinter it in a windowsill just fine, or sunny spot near a window...

HI all,

I saw some of these at Lowes. They were not labeled, but I am sure they are the same.

Dana-
you could start a co-op with those fuchsias, if you went back and picked them all up, lol...

So do you have a tree stump, or tree with large base? I am going to get this set for my Mom. And, the light really works:

Sort of an "instagarden" for fairies, and would be easy to add a few plants to, and be done :0)

Do you have any racoons in your area? Or opossums?...one word of advice. Keep it to plants-only, if you do a bog, or pond. If you add fish, the fish will attract nightly supper hunters and they'll dig around and mess up your pond nightly...

ask me how I know, lol...:0)

lol no big fish but the thread i was reading said to add a few regular goldfish. we only have squirrels . as far as i know . i think we are to far from any woods or habitat . we basically live in an aviary though . big trees in all the yards around here and the birds are almost tame . theyll come and get worms with us sitting here as long as we arnt up moving around.

ok, ...:0)

I had goldfish, too...key word "had", lol...it is like "insert goldfish, and they will come..."...you find out just what kind of wildlife is out there, that you didn't realize was there. They can smell the goldfish from great distances

My neighbor had a little pond, too, and the egrets kept landing every other day, to eat his, until they were all gone.

I now have a small aquarium inside to house the two little goldfish lucky survivors I managed to have left, before I removed them, lol

try a florist, or Michael's or hobby lobby's dried flower arrangements. The dried lotus have seeds in them, and I'm told they'll sprout.
