Miniature Painting

I absentmindedly made this small oval planter planter one morning while I was casting larger troughs.  As often happens, I had cast a couple large troughs and had leftover hypertufa once the large trough molds were full.  My garage is full of cast-off plastic objects that I stashed once upon a time, thinking that they might become useful on just an occasion such as this.  I grabbed the nearest thing (an old deli container that once held fruit) and cast the leftover mix as a trough.

I'd always figured that this trough was too small to grow plants.  Wrong.  The semps are happy as can be.  And we have a centerpiece for our outdoor table.  I'd bet that I look at this group of plants more than any other in my garden, just because they are in front of my nose when I sit outside with coffee.

  1. I love all the minis that you find to put in the smaller troughs. They make sure nice little surprises!
