Craving a Little Camper Time....

It's time to pay for our yearly stay at a little get away... up north!

A place where we gather, regardless of weather, 
with family and friends for a week every year.

Soaking in sun while finding rock treasures, 
sharing a meal that everyone pleasures.

Reading and often responding to teases, 
later lulled to sleep by the Lake Michigan waves and breezes.

Laughing by lakeside, exploring the town, 
this time with my family is priceless, I've found.

Miniature Garden Inspiration

Miniature gardens are a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in or to enjoy a fun, whimsical mini space outdoors.
Let your imagination fly:
1. find a container that you really like (a planter, wagon, vintage roasting pot, wooden box or drawer, etc).
2. add soil and plants (herbs or low growing ground covers work fabulously. Moss can be a great accent too).
3. add your miniature garden accessories, perhaps even a pea gravel walk.
4. water and enjoy!

I've loved using miniature gardens for wedding and event centerpieces.  They make a wonderful gift to give or receive.  Simply a great garden idea for urban dwellers, home chefs, beginning or master gardeners, children...  really anyone who would like to enjoy a beautiful, easy to maintain, portable garden.

See our Etsy shop for the garden miniature accessories that are available through Forrester Farm.  Let the inspiration begin!
