Sorta Rolling on the floor laughing
This table top garden has been sitting in the yard for about a year. Finally I decided to just throw some stuff in that has been sitting around in the flower beds.

I love dragons....got some plants in mind, but haven't been able to find complementary figures to put in there with it.

Was just about to snap a close up of the little white castle and camera batteries died....go figure. Grumbling

Might sit for another year before it's done Rolling on the floor laughing

Cute! I t has taken me approx. 3-4 years to finally fill up my area. I buy one or 3 things a year and it's slowly coming alive. Hilarious!

I hope not! I want to see the finished mini garden. It looks like you are on a roll. Are you creating it as you find dragon, wizard, castle, etc. pieces to add?

I am getting ready to fill a full sized Wheelbarrow with a miniature garden scene. I like Fairy scenes. Garden Fairies. I just haven't figured out yet where to place the large wheelbarrow. I have a sloping backyard with a garden border all around the fence line, so not sure just yet where to display the wheelbarrow. I think I want it in the fenced backyard, but perhaps instead on the side garden of my house which is more level.

Absolutely adorable, MJ!

Becky, that sounds great! Should be easy to move if you don't like the first spot you try. Wheel it somewhere else?

Thanks Tiffany !

@beckygardner are you going to fill part of the wheelbarrow with some sort of lightweight material. I could be pretty heavy to move if it's filled with just soil.

I have a flat tire on the wheelbarrow, so moving it after it is filled with potting mix may be a little challenging. I am thinking of adding perlite to the bottom of the wheelbarrow to lighten the load. I have not even had a chance to start it yet. Got side-tracked with life, but hope to get to work on this new project soon. Will share photos when I am done. Thumbs up
