The Fairies Came Back

Last summer my granddaughter and I put together a fairy garden. She had fun playing with the garden and finding the fairies (they are in the house in case you were wondering)

Most of the plants were supposed to be perennial and other fairy gardens have lasted through the winter. Unfortunately this winter was very harsh.  Nothing was salvaged. My granddaughter has been asking about the garden and wanted to keep it and plant again. If you would like to build a fairy garden ( it is so worth watching their imagination run with the fairy stories), you can find the original directions in this post.

I went out to the local greenhouses and shopped for new plants. I purchased a few more plants than I needed but we planted and made a little side garden which is now in need of some decoration. The newest edition is the stone flower sidewalk. My granddaughter was thrilled and each time we went outside she had to stop and play and even talk to the fairies. It is the best thing to watch her face light up when she is enjoying the garden. Here is a picture of the newly remodeled fairy garden

    I love the purple house, I am so happy that more people are starting to fair garden. I have been doing it for a few years now, and to see the growth, has made me extremely happy. I hope you post more. If you want, you can check out some of mine as well http://www.fairygarden.com
