Wednesday Late...Again...

I had the witches here today, so nothing got done in mini before they came and very little after they left.

You may have noticed that the bay window on the side had a gap between the ground and the bottom of the window.

I didn't worry about it.  I just filled in the space with sheet moss.  You can't really tell that  it doesn't go all the way to the ground.

The flowers are some dried ones that I got from Sue when she was cleaning out her stash.  I have no idea what they are, but they sure are nice to just snip off and stick in among the moss.
I started one tree in the front.  I like it, but the wind seems to be blowing to the left.  I will have to do something about that.

I don't like the one branch sticking up above the others all alone.  Instead of snipping it off, I am going to add a couple of other branches and see if I can just make it a taller tree.

The woodpecker seems to like it.  It is made from three branches off of my rosemary bush and some reindeer moss.  You can get it at Walmart, in the floral section.  Lots of the craft stores and train shops carry it also.

If I move to the left, you can see what I mean about the lollipop branch at the top...I am not liking it at all.  I just had to see what would happen if I left it there.

After getting ready for five witches to come and join me today, I am too tired to mess with it any more tonight.

My real back yard is a mixture of all different types of plants...That's how this is going to be.

Next,  I will add the rest of the landscaping. Cacti, and other greenery will be added.  I have to go out and hunt for small boulders.  

See you tomorrow.

I love the cottage and in this post especially; the tree! I hope I will be able to add such a beautiful tree one day to my own Miniature House.
