A slave to the Goddess Flora shares his garden adventures.
Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

When one hears the word miniatures, visions of Hummel, Dresden, Lladro figurine or tiny alcohol bottle collections might dance through his/her head. Farthest from my mind is gardening. However, it seems that miniature or fairy gardens are a growing trend. These would get lost in the wild jungle I call a garden and I'm not interested in fiddling around with wee pieces, I admire them when others do them. Here are a few from a display at Sorticulture, a garden arts festival, which I attended for the first time over the weekend. Several posts will follow about this amazing event!
These are very well done and may look familiar if you've read the book Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World by Janit Calvo. Janet is the designer of these tiny gardens.
This one even has it's own cinder block garden!
You could keep adding progressively larger sizes of barbecues.
With the attention to detail, this pot garnered numerous oohs and aahs from observers.
