It’s been a cold spring, filled with gray skies and wind. We need a diversion, a bit of a spring break. So, in anticipation of better weather, Tom and Huck created something called a Wee Garden. Wee Gardens are grown in containers. First, the gardener chooses several small plants (succulents, in our case, because they don’t die if you forget to water them regularly). The gardener plants the plants as he sees fit in his small container.
Next, the gardener chooses from a variety of miniature items to make his garden a miniature world. We got most of our items from Tom and Huck’s aunt and purchased a few other items at the craft store.
What can one expect to find in a Wee Garden?
Here’s hoping for some sun in the near future! If you have any wee ones at home yourself (or even if you don’t), this is a highly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Have a good weekend!
See you in the stacks!
