This spring I started my first Fairy Garden. I’ve been waiting all winter, dreaming about spring, warmer weather, and working in my garden. It’s so much fun to plan gardens but of course not so much fun to do the actual work! But every year, to my husband’s chagrin, I dream and plan all winter about my garden for the following spring. This year I’ve been especially impatient for the warmer weather because I’ve been plotting and planning a Fairy Garden!
I’m new to this idea of Fairy Gardening. Although the concept has been around for a little while now I had never heard of it until last summer - now I’m obsessed! I’ve always loved fairies and all things miniature. As a child I had a simple dollhouse - just a few painted wooden boxes stacked on their side really – nothing fancy. But inside I had the sweetest little dollhouse furniture and accessories. My Dad sometimes took us to an antique mall where one of the vendors sold dollhouse furnishings. I would linger the entire time in that area, carefully choosing my next little purchase. I spent hours with that dollhouse, rearranging, painting, and decorating the miniature rooms.
