This isn’t a post with detailed instructions about how to plan a garden. Rather, it’s a post about how to plan your gardens from the INSIDE of your house. You see, our treadmill looks out this window right at this tree that I’ve dubbed “Big Sister”.
We look at that tree A LOT. So I decided to plan a fairy garden by standing on the treadmill and creating it in a way that will give us something fun to look at while we put more miles on our sneakers.
I first got the idea last fall and brought a load of rocks to this area from another fairy garden I have going. Then I kind of dropped the ball.
This spring I got going again and I’ve made some good progress.
Just this morning I put the mulch down and several more loads of rocks. One reason I’m so late getting this post up is because I had to wait until I could move my arms again.
I’m only sort of kidding.
I’m not sure if this Clay Pot Fairy Garden House will stay in this location but for right now it looks kind of cute there. Besides, the toad that lives under Big Sister is sleeping behind it. Do you see him?
I think he needs a name…
Anyway, I’m working hard to create this little garden that I will be able to enjoy from the treadmill. It’s hard work but it makes me happy.
I do find myself standing at other windows in our house sketching out plans for more gardens. This is my NEW way to plan my gardens… from the inside out.
What makes you happy? And what should I name the toad?
