It’s hard to look at a scene like this and not be enchanted. Tiny things, especially tiny growing things are just downright adorable, aren’t they? I don’t know what it is about miniatures, but I bet we’re biologically wired to be attracted to the cute and small. After all, that’s what our babies are! Well, maybe that’s a stretch of a comparison, but I know you’re going to love these gardens.

Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World is Janit Calvo’s new book. If you’re interested in miniature gardening, you know her already from her incredibly cute creations and her shop, Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center. The book was anxiously awaited by her followers (including me), and I am happy to report it doesn’t disappoint. It is beautiful!

Inside the book you’ll find a wide range of stylish projects with how-to instructions. There are chapters on garden care, miniature garden accessories and scaled design basics. You’ll get suggestions for creating patios and pathways; how to choose plants, from trees and shrubs to ground covers; plant lists; and finally, how to maintain your miniature garden.

Gardening in Miniature is truly inspiring and lovely.
