Continuing the work for the Flower Show!
I have been spending most of the day working on the 'old barn' for the Philly Flower Show. This is the same barn kit that was in a previous post before I had 'aged' it to the way it looks now. As a reminder, here is the title and intent of our display:
My Grandparents’ West Virginia Farm.
Catching crawdads in the creek, planting seeds in the garden with Bobo, and collecting eggs for my Mamaw. This old barn is the only thing left of a place that was my little piece of heaven as a child.
As I continue to prepare the display, plants and vines and lots of distressed things will be added to the box. The old barn will have vines crawling up the exterior and trees peeping through the inside and out the roof. Vines and 'weeds' growing through the windows. I have planted grass seed in the soilless mix at the base of the display and the entire ground will be covered in crushed leaves, moss and plants - just what you would find around an old abandoned barn!
