I had a good time today. It’s my birthday and I was very lazy, took a day off from work and went shopping for herbs and tiny pots. Unfortunately it’s rather cold and windy today, and since I could not enjoy sunshine and warmth in the garden as planned I finished the porch diorama instead. My appartment smells like thyme now :). The porch turned out exactly as I imagined it. The only drawback is that most of the plants are real plants, and they tend to grow. Maybe I can take pictures of a jungle in a month or so. And I have to take everything apart after taking pictures, I don’t trust my cat with the plants in the tiny pots. She’s usually quite careful, but she likes to eat grass and all sorts of other leafy stuff. Please excuse the many pictures that seem to show exactly the same scene. When I’ve finished a new diorama I am always a bit torn between showing life in the setting and showing all the tiny details. Maybe the angle of a girl’s head looks better in this picture, and in the next one there’s a detail that was cropped in the previous picture. So here’s life on the porch for you.
