Default Quick mini garden......

..I have a JENNY WREN that needs a little garden at the front on the plinth....so i have been saving the viennetta icecream trays to use as the bases...the trays are 3 1/4 '' DEPTH and 11'' LONG.......i cut it down and firstly stuck some sandpaper on it to look like gravel.......then i started to play with the look....decided to put grass on it instead to add colour......stuck some stones around the edge...then some tiny ones ...cut some plastic packaging to size and scored it a little..glued this to the stones and base part ...then carried on =with the stones around the edge.....i will have a wall or fencing at the front where the gap is....rthen make a tre for the left hand side......took less than 20 mins to make so far..............you could make all the seasons for your little house........

It's a brilliant idea and as you say you could make a garden for every season. Thank you Sue.
