Snow in the Miniature Garden

Experimenting with the different types of snow for miniature gardening is fun – until you have to clean it up.

~ My father used to say, “Don’t eat yellow snow.” when we did something wrong that was quite obvious that it was the wrong thing to do in the first place. He also preached, “Don’t eat the road apples.” and “Please don’t eat the daisies.” quoted from the book of the same name. (I wonder why all of these sayings were food related?)

So it was the first thing that came to mind when I did this little miniature gardening experiment with fake snow. I know, I know, some of you are up to your eyeballs in snow this year and here I am trying to fake it. But hey, that’s what makes horse races. (Another fatherly maxim – non-food related though! ;o)

We have been collecting a few different kinds of artificial snow over the years… this post has been moved to the Miniature Garden Society where we are compiling and collecting all the ideas and insight into this new and wonderful hobby. We have fellow miniature gardener-members from all over the world in the members-only website. To join us or to learn more about the Miniature Garden Society, please visit the website,
