The Makings of a FAIRY GARDEN

                    A FAIRY GARDEN COMES TO LIFE!

            Have you seen them and always wanted to 
                  imagine the life of a fairy ........

Not so long ago in the gardens we heard this buzzing and to our surprise there they were....

                       Not one but two small fairies .....their wings buzzing as they
                          were busy in their vegetable garden.
                   We could hear them singing so softly and working ....digging and planting...
                               Their garden would surely  be the most bountiful of all.

               They planted corn, tomatoes, carrots, strawberries,, peppers, and

                            Their small garden rakes and hoes and shovel helped them
                                                  sow their seeds.

                       In amongst this small fenced in area  their garden grew.

A beautiful yellow primrose stood tall in the back to give some shade and to keep
                                    them well hidden and safe.

                                      A vacant birds nest that had been
                    in a nearby tree fell right into their fenced in yard and became a perfect chair
                               for them to sit in while watching  over their garden.
Outside the fence spanish moss grew and small white flowers appeared. This gave them a secure haven ..... the moss would grow tall and the fairies would stay well hidden.

                                     The small black lantern in the background
                                              becomes their home ..........


 We crept out in the night to take this 
picture and their wee home was well lit.

My grand daughter is here with me over the summer months and we 
have many projects to complete.

So be sure to come back and see how the
other fairy lives.

Thanks for coming by!
