Our Fairy Garden

Project Garden continues! We’ve been out in the garden this week, planting up some shrubs that we recently bought, including Callicarpa Profusion which we recently spotted and absolutely adored. It’ll give us some lilac flowers in the summer and brilliant bright purple berries next autumn, which I’m already looking forward to. The children were also given a tree sapling each from their Santa visit at the weekend, so we’ve got those in pots now, too. And, we finally got our fairy garden….

My mum picked up this brilliant planter, already planted up, at a bargain reduced price of just £8 for us – just perfect fairy garden size and so cute (weighs a ton, though!)

fairygardenSo we removed a few of the plants, to make way for the fairies, all under Boo’s supervision, you understand. She was very clear that she wanted a toadstool in there, with a doorway for fairies to get inside. As luck would have it, her own little garden already had a toadstool in it that we’d bought in the summer, though no doorway. Do not worry, though, as Little Man soon fixed that problem by picking it up and promptly dropping it on the floor, smashing it, thereby creating an opening!! How very kind and helpful of him…! We’d also got a little mushroom ornament that we varnished and popped in, too, hoping that that’ll protect it from the rain – we’ll see..

I must say I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out, and by the bargain nature of it! Boo also wants a sign for it, to let fairies know that they’re welcome there, so we’ll have to get onto that – I’m thinking a big stone that we can write on. It’s something that we plan to add to over the coming months, as and when we see appropriate bits of ‘furniture’ for the fairies.

What do you think? Do you have a home for the fey?!
