Please don't make this mistake

This will be a longer post, but perhaps it is useful for some you . I have made this monastery garden two years ago together with Karin for a customer . It took a long time after planing, building and planting and we were very proud . So but I have made the mistake, to trust a new material which came out in our shop for model railway . It was called " Moss for glade " , a product of Busch ( a German company ). What I didn't know, that it was a natural building material !
This is the result after two years , the whole grass looks sere and withered ! So that's why made these photos today, please don't take natural material for miniature garden. It is only for a short time , after that you can cast it away . As I saw this by my customer, I took the garden and promised to refresh it completely. Fortunately he is also a good friend and he wasn't angry about that what happened .
And this was my day : I put every flower out of the garden and deleted the whole grass with a scraper and a cutter knife . After that I put on a coat from my wallpaper waste and put new grass from woodland scenic on it. And after hours of setting all the flowers on the right place , the whole thing was restored :-) ! I have made some pictures , although I hadn't daylight, but I'm so lucky now and show you them .

Chinese laterne plant

I have made these Chinese laterne plant in commission and it really drives me crazy. It was very difficult to build the flowers out of paper, but somehow I made it :-) !

Hairdresser's shop

Since working at my flowers ,I have made a hairdresser's shop for a doll ,that Cornelia Köhler made . I bought the box in Rheda and made a modern shop . I put LED light inside, so you have a good insight also with the front before .
You see, it's just at the beginning , but everything takes a while :-) . The furniture is bought by Delph Miniatures ,I really like their assortment . The palms just stand there until I have made enough decoration like posters and everything what makes a modern Hairdresser's shop.
I made the pillars out of plexiglass and marbled them with acrylic colors .
Here will be the place for the man ,maybe someone who will be shaved ?!
Here you see Dany closer ,I really love that doll .Like always Cornelia did a marvelous job . He will dress a funky girl .

For Karin :-)

Just for fun I made a spooky flower for Karin's little candy shop . I put some dandelion around ,that it looks more real :-)) . Think that's far away from reality and really far away from flowers I normally make . So now I'm curious Karin ,how you will arrange it and I hope you'll like it .

A picture taken in the evening , it looks more spooky :-))
