Build Your Own Whispers Garden...

   There is a random corner of our beloved Harambe that was revealed upon the recent (ish) opening of Harambe Market.  The Whispers Garden is just a random adorable piece of theming that I'm obsessed with.  It doesn't serve any purpose other than to enrich the story and atmosphere of what is probably the most intricately themed land in any theme park.  And I love it.
   After our most recent trip to Walt Disney World I decided to make my own whispers garden.  Here, in pictures, is how it happened and the end result.  Enjoy.

First I needed a nice empty corner of my garden...I thought this spot was perfect.

I bought various shade loving plants, with interesting pots.  The "real" whispers 
garden at DAK has potted plants only...

To make my sign I used a random antique wooden box. 

Which I tore apart and stained...

Using a dremel tool I etched the words...


painted and sealed...

And assembled my little garden. 



   Just as a reference, that last picture is the actual sign from Animal Kingdom.  I think mine came out pretty good!!! And now I have a lovely little shade garden in which to contemplate my love of Walt Disney World.
