Michael's Craft Store has tiny rocks now!

Seattle, WA

Hello Fellow Tiny Gardeners!

Michael's has teenie tiny bags of rocks - one is in shade of browns and the other is in lovely shades of jade greens. 2lb bags - plenty for your patios and pathways!

I haven't checked in the online store yet but the woman said they should be there too!

Here are a couple of photos of what I do with them:

Very nice, Janit! Is that a real fern on the right of the first pic? If so, how big does it grow?

Yes, that is real - it's not a fern though, it just looks like it!

It's Leptinella squalida 'Platt's Black' - or Platt's Black Brass Buttons. It likes shade to part sun ~ turns browner in the shade and greener in the sun.

It gets pretty invasive in the ground if it's left unchecked (just take a shovel to it in the spring months when it starts to run. Great in pots too.

There is a regular Brass Buttons with is a bit greener and a little bigger leaf. And there is a miniature version that has the tiny serrated leaves and grows in a mat.

I love it because you can really get that forest look with these - add a "log" and a rock and you've got it!

That is so cute. Love the fence too.

Janit that is sooo cute. Great to hear about the rocks at Michael!!! I will head straight there when we finish babysitting this afternoon!!

I haven't done any small gardens for several year, you guys are inspiring me to get back to it again....now would be a good time while waiting for my yard to dry out enough to work outside!

Got some rock from Michaels!!! Now Laura and I are looking for things to do a tiny garden and also to set up scenery to photo our Polymer Clay Characters....may just make most of the other things we need out of clay also...we did get some beautiful mossy limbs, bits of wood and clumps of moss on a walk we did Sunday.....starting to get a lot of ideas....Wish I had taken pictures of the dish gardens I did for the Church plant sale a few years ago....
