So, the Covid fairy finally found us before the Fourth and we lived to tell the tale. I must say, (and yes, you know I’m biased,) that the hobby of miniature gardening is pret-ty handy to have around if you’re stuck at home with a bunch of time on your hands. I mean, really, what other hobby is so adaptable to locations, moods, materials, tasks and your own creativity?
About that Covid Fairy
Steve and I had the two vaccinations plus one booster-shot and yet, the Covid Fairy still found us. I guess it thought we were feeling left out, maybe?? But our symptoms were mild so it was just the exhaustion that was, well, exhausting! I did find that I had the attention span of a gnat, and the strength of one too, so there wasn’t a whole-lot I could do save for – you-know-it – miniature gardening!
It really is the number of different ways to enjoy miniature gardening that make this hobby so fun. It’s adaptable to almost any location if you have a natural light source. It can be as big as you want – or as small as you want. You can explore an extensive number of different ways to craft and learn about working with different materials and techniques…
How to Do Something While Doing Nothing
So, if you just want to putz with something in front of the boob-tube to keep your hands busy, there are always printable-projects to assemble, mini art poles to decorate or you can created something from polymer clay – all without getting up or having to stand.
If you want to sit outside, enjoy the weather while taking it easy, you can always trim a tree or two, clean up a wee patio, pull a weed or deadhead something. It really doesn’t take much effort to repot or replant the small trees and shrubs either.
If you just want to play in your miniature scenes, there’s that too.
