For my Hidden Design Challenge I was thinking about a hidden garden. This hidden garden has a twist though. You wonder what is behind the keyhole. When you open the door, you see a T-Rex having his own personal Tea Party during events that will lead to his extinction or Ex-tea-nction. There is a comet heading toward his Tea Party and a volcano erupting in the distance. But T-Rex is being as calm as a dinosaur can be at his lonesome tea party. T-Rex drinks his tea alone as he is known for his extreme mood swings and violent outbursts.
