I’ve been clearing one of the back lots for a few years now. There is now a manageable area to work with for our new project. A hidden Fairy garden.
I talked about having one at my other blog. If you want the details, you can read it here.
The one thing I knew I wanted to have in it was the huge Elephant Ear plants. That way the little houses and landscape designs would look even smaller. I wondered if I would ever be able to get my hands on any. My sister (middle) had asked us to take her shopping to help her pick a new computer and we ended up going to a bunch of different places.
Guess what I found?
The bulbs are huge! Beside it is a Canadian cent (penny) and ten cent coin.
Now we can begin designing little houses and designs. I’m still considering building a massive twig chair to sit by the Elephant Ear plants!
