Around the Garden World - Day 9

Yesterday I was posting about "micro-gardens". Today I was walking around the gentrified neighborhood Church Hill in east Richmond, Virginia, and saw these "fairy gardens" or sometimes called miniature gardens. The really odd thing about the fairy garden (there is a sign that says, "Fairy Garden Open")was that it was on a street corner and seemed to be on what is considered public easement.

not too sure about mr. gnome and barbie hooking up

This was the miniature garden's garden

Troll doll visits for the day

This looked like artichoke leaves

To learn more about Miniature gardens, check out Janit Calvo's book Gardening In Miniature.
