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
This is the sweetest thing! I’m pinning it for someday when I’m a grandma :).
It is very easy and provides so much fun.
VERY cute. I can just imagine the hours of fun both you and your granddaughter have enjoying the fairy garden. Thanks for sharing.
She does have fun with the garden and I love the smell of some of the flowers. Thanks for your support and comment
wow – that’s beautiful! it’s a lovely way to make your children’s imagination run wild 🙂
It is nice to hear her talking and making stories about the fairy garden.
That is absolutely adorable! Must do this with my granddaughters!
Thank you. You and your granddaughters will have a great time with the garden. The nicest thing is you can make it unique.
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
This is too sweet! My daughter would LOVE this. She always wants to make fairy houses but I am far from crafty enough. 🙂
I am not crafty and it isn’t hard. The birdhouse is already built and only requires paint. I hope you and your daughter will try it.
THis is such a cute idea! I love things that spark a child’s imagination!
