A Very Tiny Indoor Garden

I'm inviting you in again! This time to my tiny conservatory.

This all-glass structure features beautiful arches and a vaulted ceiling.
(It's from Smith & Hawkins)

There's a magnificent black iron baker's rack to hold the tender bulb plants
and the geraniums.

An assortment of pots and urns hold hydrangeas and more geraniums.
Whoops! I left my rusty watering can there!

An orange tree in a stone planter...this building called also be an orangery,
used in Europe to winter the citrus trees.

A wicker plant stand in this corner and, of course, a little blue & white!
There's an orchid on a pedestal by the doorway.

It's always quiet and peaceful here.

The tiniest flowers just flourish.

The blossoms are well cared for and protected.

Wait...what was that?

Yikes! A giant cat!


  1. Looks great, Conservatories make a great addition to any home and garden, consider how your garden conservatory will be used so you can choose the design that will be the most conducive to your current needs as well as your needs for the future.

  2. I A-D-O-R-E this conservatory! Every tiny accessory!
    I've loved miniatures ever since my childhood. I remember falling in love after my first visit to Knotts Berry Farm. Where there was a mini museum that housed different vignettes with miniatures. I could spend hours gazing at all the fine details.
    That's where it all began.

    Thank you for visiting my humble blog. I hope you come by and visit again.

    Sweet wishes,

  3. So lovely! And so peaceful - a place to get lost in for hours!

  4. What a stunning place! If I went in there, you might not ever get me out again! Wow. Gorgeous.

  5. Love your conservatory & your blog! Can't wait to see all this in person! Luv,M

  8. How cute, peeking at your cat from your Conservatory. What a gorgeous treasure this is. I just love tiny things, and this is lovely. Did you put this all together yourself? When my daughter built a doll house, I loved going to the shop and looking at all of the tiny things.
