Making Tiny Things

Since Meg so enjoyed spotting tiny things in other people's yards, she decided to add some to her own.

If you're on a walk past Meg's house, keep your eyes open and you might just spot some of these ...

Hiding in the native violet bed

A secret sun in the mulch

This one reminds us of a black hole

Koala peeks out from the leaves

A secret in the shade of the gumtree
Stepping stone; in Spring, the green will be masses of wildflowers
More and more stepping stones ...

Meg would like to point out that she is not crafty at all. But it turned out to be surprisingly simple to make some secrets to hide in the garden. Mostly all she did was smash up some old tiles and plates, then cement them onto chunks of concrete she found lying around. She also used old buttons here and there. Smashing things up to make other things might seem like a strange idea but it was lots of fun and even the birds seem to be enjoying the new colour in the garden.
