I don't know why I've always loved miniature things. But I do. A few years ago I was introduced to miniature gardens. I think I posted about my first one here. These are #3 and #4. I must have missed #2.
Last week I noticed that one of my dwarf Ginkgo trees had a horizontal branch perfect for a little swing. So my Rick helped me make one! I know that tag looks out of place. But I really don't want to forget what variety Gingko it is because I have 3 different dwarf Gingkos. They are hard to find. I mail ordered 3 of the three about 6 years ago and they were spendy. I added some Thyme, a Hen & Chicks, a variegated dwarf Liriope and some rocks. We'll see how it looks when the Gingko puts on it's leaves which it should be doing soon!
I made a new friend also last week who gave me a very old Boxwood plant. I knew it would be perfect for another mini garden. I trimmed off the lower outside branches and a little off the middle and now it looks like a little tree. I planted it with another Hen & Chicks, a Thyme, a variegated Armeria and a cute little gray dwarf Artemesia(that I'd never seen before). I've ordered two little benches from Two Green Thumbs. I can't wait to add them when they arrive.
