One Quarter Done

The corner with the water basin and the lantern is now done to my satisfaction. I added a bush (foam ball cut in half, painted, coated in railroad coarse "grass"), a hosta plant, some pinkish stuff kind of the same colour as the Japanese maple under the hosta, and a stepping stone and grass. The grayish things to the left of the lantern are plastic plant parts, as some height in a neutral colour was required there.

Next, I have to make more hydrangeas for the bush that will go in the other quarter of this size of the garden. Five flower heads have been made, but I think I'll need at least a dozen to make a good show.
That's for tomorrow, along with many, many leaves....


  1. Your little garden looks very peaceful and the water feature fits in Beautifully with your lantern and the other growing plants! :))

  2. Thanks, Elizabeth. The hard thing is going to be not to overcrowd, and yet get a good balance going.

  3. I love this, Marijke! I can hardly wait to see it at the Moncton show! - Marilyn D., Oromocto, NB, Canada
