A few photos of our fairy garden


I thought I would post a few photos of this year's fairy garden.  Besides the inpatients, the plantings are mostly herbs for a more sensory experience.  On either side of that center shell, you can see a magical bean stock.  Lily planted this.  This year, we also included mementos from our holidays (shells from Mexico, rocks Norway, and volcanic rock from Iceland). The large pink felted gnome is from Iceland.

I hot-glued dollar shop turf the fairy house roofs.

Have a lovely weekend,

  1. Your fairy garden is just delightful. What a beautiful activity to share with your daughters. Speaking of fairies, a favorite blogging friend of mine came to our house today and brought us a fairy door for our treehouse. I can't wait to install it. It's just precious.

    Have a beautiful weekend!

  2. How incredibly sweet! I made the boys a kids' garden this year, with a few simple veggies and plants, but they turned it into a construction yard for their trucks. Maybe next year!

  3. It's wonderful! Our poor fairy garden has faced one catastrophe after another. We'll get it going one day, I hope.

  5. Oh very pretty! I should do a similar garden with my little one but I couldn't call it a fairy garden (he wouldn't go for that unfortunately). Maybe a spy garden?...
