   That’s it, the woman has finally lost it….I know what you’re thinking!  But, NO, truly I haven’t!  This time of year when I just don’t know if I can tolerate one more day of drab skies and rain and the threat of snow, my mind wanders to all that is green…

 You still don’t know where I’m going with this….that’s ok….I’ll share…..

FAIRIES!

     Yup….that’s it!  I’m sure you’ve seen the fairy gardens in the gardening magazines or even in your local garden centers. Some stores have everything for our winged friends, including furniture!  But close your eyes….bear with me here…close em!

     Picture a small, picturesque garden, filled with everything minature….teensy weensy ferns, and succulents and lil’ flowers that only a fairy could pick! Picture sitting in a lil’ bench, waiting for your fairy friends to show up….you can hear them….a distant giggle….off in the greenery, right behind that lil’ plant, hidden from view….a place you would imagine Tinkerbell and her friends….

       These fairy gardens are so very popular! Great for gifts, great as a project with your kids….imagine their joy while they gaze at the lil’ garden and wait for the elusive lil’ friends to appear…..use your imagination! What items from your own home can you use?  Bottlecaps, pinecones, pebbles, marbles (make great gazing balls for fairy gardens!) the possibilities are endless!  You can use just about anythin for a container as well!

     Fairy gardens can be started inside by a window and then moved to your porch or deck when the weather warms and you and your children can watch it grow and thicken creating so many more hiding places for the fairies!

   You can inspire dreams and stories for generations to come with one little fairy garden, for you, for your children, for your friends and family…..and the love of a garden…..
