A Tiny Flower Planet

We had a light snow last evening and it was dreary and cold today. For a break, we went to the greenhouse at Green Spring Gardens for a little cheer. We had just watched Gavin Hoey on YouTube,  showing an example of creating a tiny planet using flowers. We had to try it, too. Here is our result.  It made us feel better. We hope you like it, too!
