I decided I needed a little spring in mylife. At the last minute I signed up for a fairy garden class at our local garden center. This is a huge garden center. I knew that we would make our own garden but also hoped to pick up some new tips. This was a already assembled garden.......It's in one of those huge whiskey buckets. I am thinking of doing this in my old iron kettle this year.
These are the gardens that we made. So fun. The plants are from "Fairy Garden Kingdom". They had a whole section of different ones. Last year I don't know if I looked too late but they had hardly any to choose from. But I also remember last year they didn't dedicate as much space to these gardens as they have this year. Everyone was shopping for these teeny gardens. Several would keep coming by with their carts to listen in. So funny. Anyway here are the names of the plants I choose.....Santolina, Ghostly.....Fuchsia, Lottie Hobby......Star Carpet, Alpine White. I loved the names of the plants. They even had mulch called fairy mulch.
I didn't really learn a lot from the class. All the other people taking the class had also made the gardens before . It was just fun and something green. Now to keep mine alive before it can go outside. That's almost 2 months. It's supposed to snow here in a little while.
This was our teacher Rocket. Yes that was her name. She was very sweet even though this picture doesn't show it. It was hot and very bright under the big plastic house.This was a cute garden with the little boy, wagon and crochet set.
This was another huge garden. The little stone house is similar to the one I have but much smaller. I can't find the person that makes the one I had anywhere. It's a Hupertufa house. This one was about $60. I got mine for about $40 and 4 years ago. Now it would sell for over $100 if you can find it anywhere
A mother and a daughter that went to the class asked me to take their picture at the checkout. So I asked them to take mine. With the sun shining in from behind me that white ole hair blends in with the background. I know I seem to have a lot of pictures of me in this top. Okay, now I am planning on how I want to use my glamper in a fairy garden. This will be fun. Any ideas.
I said that I would talk about the funeral later and respond to your comments. I just can't seem to write about it. So with that said. RIP Tyler.
