Boosting the plant in the pot
Today our post came around 14:00 so not long after that I opened up the newly arrived kit and got down to it, turned on the radio and listened the while to the end of this week’s drama serial and then Gardeners’ Question Time and the beginning of Last Words was on as I turned off the radio and cleaned up.
Got frustrated with threading the small stars again but was much faster and neater about it, and managed to add the petals without wallpapering myself with them at all! Still couldn’t hold the petals in order to give them the necessary curl but, hey ho, at least I’ve added them 🙂
If the petals feel firm I might try curling their top edge now so that they might look less like geraniums. The pot and its saucer also came today from The Miniature Garden Etsy site.
Planting up so far
The double pencil lines nearest the bottom right corner of the photo indicate the garden wall. This is a very small front area as you can see, so perhaps only a corner of something floral at the far right edge of the frontage will finish things off(?)
