Don’t know which I like best – they all fill me with envy and desire (to have a real in-ground garden).
The bug hotel is amazing, but then the potting shed is an object of desire too 🙂
Yes, I could get a little wistful over that potting shed too – potting is such a joyful, relaxing pastime. The only downside is dealing with the surplus seedlings.
I was especially taken by the bug hotel complex.
What is the check in procedure for bugs, I wonder?
I would expect it’s on a first come, first served basis. 😉
Really nice. Loved the rocks with the names.
The simplest ideas are often the best. I love finding the pebbles with pictures or messages on that people sometimes leave. The last one I found was a yellow submarine pebble on the edge of a wood. I would have loved to have taken it home, but left it for the next person to see.
What is so great about a tree in a box? Does it need to be moved in out of the frost for winter?
I don’t think it does – there would be a lot of them to move. It adds formality and weight, a bit like how we might frame a picture although we don’t need to.
As an arborist, I would prefer all my trees to be in the ground. I do like formality though.
I love those stone plant labels 🙂
I’m glad – thank you for commenting!
