Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Fairy Garden

I've been wanting to plant a fairy garden for several years.
This year there were no plans to plant lawns, build patio covers or install fences
so I decided that this would be the year!
I found a cute little chair that was just the right size for a garden fairy.
I already had a polka dot mushroom.
In my shed I found a picnic basket that had seen better days that wasn't being used for anything.  I lined it with cocofiber
that I got from the nursery.

A  half a cup of fish tank gravel made a great little path.

Baby tears, an impatien, maidenhair fern, and a little polka dot plant surrounds the fairy chair.

And a tiny little white bunny to keep the fairy company when she comes to visit.

Maybe ..... Just Maybe you will be able to catch a fairy!
( yeah, just watched TinkerBell and the great fairy rescue with a little sweet pea. I'm so " up" on fairys and us, humans now. :0 )
For sure your little sweet peas will love your fairy garden. Way cute.

I love it. I read about fairy gardens just the other day and thought it was fantastic, but then I remembered that I can't keep my big people garden thriving, so I have no business ruining one for a fairy.

I must have missed this post while away last week. Your faerie garden is so very sweet with the little chair and bunny. I have always liked polka dot plant..it fits in perfectly. Next year I think I'll make one, too. I will be scouting for supplies!

I love the miniature garden. I do minature scapes all the time and enter them in the fair. They are so much fun.
