PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Well, here are a few of my attempts at making fairy gardens. They are in hypertufa troughs and dishes that I made.
It's kind of hard to tell, but in the center of this picture is a sunken pond. It's actually a water dish for lizards that I found at a pet shop. They had lots of stuff that would work in tiny gardens, but they were kind of expensive. Luckily the pond was on sale.
This one doesn't have a fairy in it, just a little scene. There is writing on the bottom of the sunflower/crow stand that says something like "be sure to bring your own sunshine"...or something like that. There are 2 dragonflys flying over the plant on the right.
It does get to be an addiction doesn't it? And I am trying to spread it around!! Got my Granddaughter a Fairy Garden Kit from JoAnn's for her 8th birthday...she had a lot of fun with it...this is her first garden...
Seedpicker, yes, the dragonflies are buttons! How strange that we would find the same ones. I used florists wire on them. I did see lots of other cute ones too. You can really put a lot of money into these gardens if you're not careful.
They are very addiciting! zhinusmom, your granddaughter did great! Bet she loved making her own.
Thanks. The birdbath was purchased off ebay, but I've seen them elsewhere in dollhouse catalogs.
It is made of real metal and is either copper, or brass..not sure, but it is actually "heavy" for such a small item...they are a bit pricey. I think I haven't found them for less than $20 a piece!!
It was less on ebay, because I bought a lot assortment.
adorable... I have been behaving myself... just did one... but it's not finished yet... I want to find 2 doggies a York terrier and a puddle...since this tiny garden is inspired by my sweet and wonderful friend Sue... I love her garden... and her babies... they are soooo cute...
