A couple of months ago I was contacted Sarah Elms at our local newspaper the Record Eagle and asked to do an interview about fairy gardening.
Since it was March and most of my fairy garden was put away we did a phone interview and I shared pictures with Sarah that she had chosen from my garden blog.
I snapped pictures from the magazine. I was so tickled to see this two page spread as the beginning of the article.
Sarah's focus was to talk about the growing popularity of Fairy Gardening. She interviewed a few people and different parts of the conversations are included throughout.
She wanted a picture of me so I set up a tripod and used my timer to take the picture shown in the upper left corner. Early in March we had a complete meltdown of snow and I brought out some of my fairy garden pieces. These pictures are from several different posts on my blog.
I'm so pleased that Sarah chose me to include in her story. I was a little shy about doing it but I'm glad I let my guard down and went for it!
I've also created fairy gardening in containers. This can be rewarding especially if you don't have much space or garden beds.
This is my first fairy garden area.
All my Fairy Garden posts can be found if you go to my search bar and type in Fairy Garden. Because of the heavy snowfall we get up here I put my fairy garden accents away every fall. I change things up a bit each year since I have to bring it all out again.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame!
