Just pottering around

It's mid-winter Downunder, meaning time to do the heavier gardening.
Not a lot of time for miniatures but the school holidays couldn't pass without spending time with grandkids making something for their projects.  

No.3 grandson requested a paper towel holder for his kitchen.

No.2 grandson made a trash to treasure planter box for his stable a while ago, 
he has painted it and planted some of my dodgy flowers. 

I'm sure the horse will find them appetising
even though they look like they came from another planet ;)

my own pottering with paperclay.
That's a trotting pole in front of the planter.

The flowers were a kit from


  1. Thanks Rachel. Spending time with grandkids making miniatures is lovely, I wish it were possible to do it more often :)

  2. I love all your flowers, especially the trailing geranium leaves!

  3. Your grandchildren are just as talented as you :) Everything is beautiful and your flowers are not dodgy :)

  4. Haha Laura, those geranium flowers up close look like they've suffered from gene modification ;) but the leaves will pass. I'll pass on your kind comments to the kids!

    The chrysanthemum kit from Georgie was easy, I like them :)

    My plants are about to start looking more the thing thanks to a little gift. Thankyou so much Christine, all those little punchies will go a long way toward helping fill my miniature gardens!!
