My fairy gardens are always in need of something “special” to catch my eye. Perhaps it is the little “pop” of red, with sprinkles of white, but one of the most eye-catching additions to any miniature garden are little toadstools (otherwise known as the fly amanita mushroom). This is no accident, mind you. There is actually some science behind it…
Basic art classes will discuss in detail the way colors interact with each other, and the contrasting (or complementary) color to green is red. Since most plants are green (wait, they’re all green!), the best way to get someone’s attention is to add something red to the mix! Just look at the way the pictures below are surrounded by the green background of my page…sort of like a real garden.
