This is my newest creation Smiley It started with a base that was originally going to be something else but then became this garden scene.

When I was a little girl living in the mountains of BC there was a woman in my neighbourhood that would give me sugar snap peas from her garden when I would pass by and this memory came out as I was making the woman for my scene.

Emma is about 4" 1/2 high and the grass and garden itself is 8 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches and has a little flower garden in one corner lined with rocks.

She has a raised garden with carrots, radishes, leeks and cabbages which can all be taken out of the garden and replanted. There is a tomato plant in a recycled tire and a bowl that has tomatoes.  Her apron that can be removed, and there is also a pot with two flowers in it, a watering can and a spade.
