I’m building a fairy garden with my kids and one of our neighbor kids. I should say, I’m building it for me and occasionally I remember to try to include them. They are all loving it, actually, and I’m looking forward to us having this project to tinker with all summer.
It started with some cutesy little flowers I picked up at the Trillium Festival a few weeks back. When I started adding them to the trillium, columbine and maidenhair fern I bought at last year’s festival, it all seemed so delicate and whimsical. And a fairy garden was born…
Half the fun has been seeking treasures and found objects to add to it. I raided my “I’ll fix this someday” box of broken jewelry and pulled out some treasures that I know I’m not really going to fix.
Here’s our progress so far. I have to agree with our neighbor girl and co-creator when she says, “Now I just wish we could make ourselves small so we could play in the garden!”
