Weary Gardener

1 Weary Gardener 1 sm

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
~ Nursery Rhyme

Not being a very good gardener, about all I know is that it makes me tired. And why get dirt underneath my nails when I can create a lovely garden space with all of these gorgeous things?

Let’s start with my gardening dress – a loose shift that is casual enough for gardening, yet pretty enough for something more. It is from Belle Epoque and is available at The Liaison Collaborative until April 30, 2016. Warning: if you’re going to do “real” gardening in it, you might want to get some knee pads!

With all of the springy events right now, you can’t go wrong in filling a garden space. The planters on the table in the background are from {what next} at this month’s round of Collabor88. There are three, and go perfectly with the bench, which you’ll see in the next photo.

I couldn’t resist using the [ keke ] petals and lotus basin again. These are the kind of things that are guaranteed to get a squeeeee! out of me every time. And there are a plethora of pretties from [ zerkalo ], [ kunst ] and *LODE* from the current round of Shiny Shabby. Keep looking through the credits for more amazing stuff!

All of the crates in the photo include a pose (including the one I am using), so they are perfect for decor and photography. They are part of the gacha from Le Poppycock, also available at The Liaison Collaborative.
