Well, I had planned to post a collage of all the PINK flowers in my garden but the deer had other plans! They stripped my garden of every flower they could reach last night. So, I had to come up with another pink idea fast. That's when I remembered this...
OK, I'll admit it, I have always loved these animal crackers and when I saw this little box I could not resist! Animal crackers AND Lilly Pulitzer all in one little package, what could be sweeter? So I tucked in the lid, inserted a couple of votive holders, added a little water and some sweet little PINK flowers and ta da, a really quick arrangement. Here's another view and as always, you can click on the picture to get a closer look.
Now I have something really special to show you. Last week my Niece and Nephew-in-law (is that the right term?) and their sweet baby boy came over for dinner. They brought a gift for me as a Thank-You for doing the baby announcements and I was blown away. John works at a nursery and makes these amazing miniature gardens and he made one just for me! Check this out, it is so cool.
Here are a few closeups:
You don't get a good feel for how big this is in the photos but it is huge, over 12" high and about 2' in diameter.
A little toad has even taken up residence under the miniature boxwood. Who could blame him! You can't see this in the picture but behind the house is a little jar that holds a votive candle that I can light at night. So, that's it for Saturdays In the Garden, I hope you enjoyed it and hope you will come back again. Maybe next week I'll even have some pictures of flowers.
