My Whimsy Garden...

If I didn't kill plants (seriously, I have an indoor palm tree right now as my only living plant, the first I've had in years.. and the kids named it Hope *eyeroll*) I would love to have gorgeous gardens...
Except... I want one like this, I don't want real flowers, I want polka dot ones and ones with ribbons and peppermint stripes and, ok, let's be honest I want to live somewhere between a Dr. Seuss book and a Tim Burton movie. I create elaborate fanciful stories about the creatures that might live there and it just makes me smile while I draw and for me, that's what it's about right now.

So, anyway I think it's finally done. I kept adding to it, and other than a small spiderweb that begs to be in here, and possibly a ladybug, it seems to be finished.

Several people asked when I posted it as a WIP (here) to post the final when it's done.
TADA! (I always say tada when I'm done creating something!  I learned this in kindergarten I think!)

I'd love to hear what you think.
