Or very clever gardeners and landscape designers. I learned about the small Hobbit House in June from a piece on a local TV show and I immediately put it on my list of sketch locations. Today was my first chance to get out there as it is a 1.5 hour drive.
It is located at The Brothers Greenhouse in Port Orchard. It was built by Cheryl Pelkey and Marilyn Davis who work there. On the video at the TV link, above, they said, “we’re both the hobbits; we fit under the roof”. I guess I am too, as I fit with inches to spare!
I wandered the green house and saw many very charming items, all of which I resisted buying. I do not need more stuff. I did get 2 pounds of fresh, home grown tomatoes for a caprese salad tonight. And some Oregon grape plants for my own garden.
Then I went out to the hobbit house which is just behind the greenhouses. It is wonderful. There isn’t much inside but you can go in. Once I had my fill of photos, I sat down to sketch.
All the photos here. See inside the house and also more items from the greenhouse shop.
