The garden/landscaping project continues!
We had a forlorn little terracotta garden rabbit that was hidden in the brush, unpainted, and I wanted to paint it and give the poor old thing a makeover.
he was originally something like the above- I didn’t take a before picture, though.
Maisie INSISTED on choosing the spray paint colors this go ’round, so he had to be hot pink. I didn’t do the greatest job with the spray painting, I honestly just wanted to get it over with. However, it looked really creepy without ‘real’ looking eyes, so the child insisted Mr. Bun get them.
I didn’t have any craft paint, so we used sharpies, which turned out to her satisfaction, as far as hot pink bunnies go.
The made-over Mr Bun
he also got a nose and mouth
He still looks a little sad and lonely, but at least he now has pizzazz and eyes.
Maisie was very pleased with this project, so all’s well that end’s well!
I’ve been wanting on of these things for years!
Now, the ones in the pics aren’t MY tree, I just found a smaller one that will fit a teeny hillock on the NW corner of my garden.
I’m obsessed with blue bottle trees like these- and blue glass evil eye trees
My friend is delivering it in about 30 minutes. Granted, mine is much smaller- about 16″ at base and 5 feet tall, but it is the perfect size for where I want to place it.

I plan on making a fairy garden for Maisie nearby.
I love lots of whimsy in my gardens and Maisie loves helping outside. We live in a very artsy, laid-back beach town- so growing food on your lawn and sculptures are pretty much the norm in my book.
My gnomes will appreciate this, too.
BTW, my mysterious gnome problem ceased about 2 yrs ago.
