I started 2 fairy gardens this spring. I think this will be a very addicting hobby. It's like playing doll house outside.

This is my small scale garden

Both of those are in the only shade areas I have in my yard, so next project would be a sunny spot.

Here's a full shot of the small scale, when I first planted. Amazing how tiny it looks standing up and looking down at it, have to really get down to the ground to get the close ups...LOL

Jennifer,
I totally agree. I love playing dollhouse. And I love your little gardens.

Thanks so much for the links.
