This past Saturday, my good friend Joan and I went to a local greenhouse/nursery called the PLANT FARM. It is one of my very favorite places to go besides the thrifts or antique stores. They were hosting a party to make 'fairy gardens'.
We started with these nice stained wood planter boxes. We could upgrade to a planter of our own choice but I liked this one and didn't think about bringing a multitude of containers I have around here.
We had a list of goodies to pick from and also a lot of plants----like I said---it is a GREENHOUSE---so we had plenty to pick from.
We put a layer of crushed charcoal in the bottom of the container then added the potting soil.
I put mine together with a gated arbor, a mini birdbath pick, a lantern bird feeder, a pebbled path and a copper wire bench. There is a mini copper bucket with moss on the bench. I covered the rest of the dirt with moss after planting all the plants. When I got home I added a little dolly holding a puppy to the bench.
I sprinkled a few valentine hearts around to note the season.
I looked for foliage with texture and colors. I was very happy with my little garden and now can put together more for others when I have a mind to.
Hoping your day is fruitful and full of things that make you smile.
