Fairy Garden

Last Summer the girls became interested in fairy gardens. All winter they researched in books and collected materials to make one in our backyard...Saturday, Tony took the girls shopping and they collected the supplies to begin this seasonal project. Julia created a fairy pond, chairs, and pretty little flowers for growing. She toiled all the soil and followed her landscaping sketch that she drew herself. Emerson helped select a few decorations and they both will be responsible for the upkeep. As the weather warms they will add appropriate perennials so that next year they can sit and enjoy the fairy garden. They have discovered a mysterious thing though...someone or something has been leaving glitter and sparkles along the path...could it be a fairy? This fairy has left very large footprints behind....


  1. I love this! We are hoping to do one ourselves this Spring. Jaxson fell madly in love with Tinkerbell (not boyish I know) and I promised to see if we could entice some fairies to visit our garden this year.

  2. It was so much fun and truly didn't require much planning! Girls used all recyclable stuff and a little bit of glitter from dad...they really think a fairy is living back there...you think I can charge rent?!?
