Every year after Christmas is over I start to think about Spring and I look forward to the seed catalogs arriving in the mail come January/February. Looking through garden catalogs in the winter and planning my garden on paper helps me get through the winter months here in Ohio. Here is a pic from this past summer that I took of our repurposed bird bath. I was tired of cleaning the nasty water all the time so I had my hubby drill holes in the bottom of it and I filled it with dirt and planted a fairy garden instead. I was real pleased with how it came out and surprised at how well the plants grew for all the more dirt that was in it. I wanted to winter it over in the house but it was so heavy to lift off of the base that I decided to let it go. Next summer I hope to come up with a way to bring it in so I don't have to buy new plants each year. If there are any of you who are into fairy gardens I would love to see some pictures of what you have created.
