Tiny Gardens and Cottage For Our Tiny Gardeners

I'm going to give you a sneak peek at a big project.
Well, it is in reality little, but creating it is big.

My husband and I have been building our little ones a cottage.
All their own, all miniature, all lovely.
It still has a few things left before a final reveal:
The awning, porch rails, door knob, rug, and veggie garden box.
But for the most part, it is finished and played in daily:
Our 3 year old, Afton, picked out the color scheme.
She was thrilled with her yellow door!!!!!
And she insisted the window boxes be blue.
The coral and blue fabric for the curtains match the awning.
 Here she is lovingly caring for her window boxes.
She has really done well as a tiny gardener.
Those succulents were tiny when planted 3 weeks ago!
She also helps take care of momma's new plants!

And Evelynn's Fairy Garden is doing well.
I found a new fairy while in Vermont and we added a door. 


In the next three weeks, our BIG PROJECT will have some work done!
We are putting in the retaining wall (finally)
Laying cobblestones.
And planting 12 lavender plants, my Mother's Day present!

Grass will go in at the end of the summer.
I'll be in Utah for 6 weeks and it is just too hot in July!
Monsoon season hits in August, so we plan on laying sod then.

So many things to do! 
I'm getting quite the tan with all this outdoor work!
