Happy Hanukkah!

I’ve done a fair number of themed miniature gardens over the last 17 years of my full-time study of this wonderful new hobby of gardening in miniature for this blog and for the Prop Shop book, but the Hanukkah miniature garden I still fallback on using “color” for the theme.

While I completely respect the lack of decorations for this very special occasion for so many people worldwide, as it’s a very nice change from almost any other occasion, (= no pressure!) I tend to fall back on the traditional blue and silver decorations and end up using them as we do Christmas decorations.  

See our Seasonal Themes and Occasions for Miniature Gardens section on this blog, here.

The only reason I can think of for why I do it this way, rather than use the fall-back excuse of “well, that’s what I know,” is because all my miniature gardens have a tree in them – so I end-up decorating it. Thus the conundrum. BUT it still makes a peaceful and pretty scene regardless – and that’s really what it’s all about, right?

You might recognize our “Cover Girl” from our first Gardening in Miniature book. It’s an Elf Dwarf Alberta Spruce tree that we’ve had for many years now.
