This past weekend I finally had some time to concentrate on my fairy garden.
I have a new smaller one I've ordered that will go on this little area I've prepared. I've added various real plants and some faux for effect.
Each year I disassemble this because of the winters. I pull off the stones and fencing and put all the fairies away so I end up creating something different every year. Along this little fence line is some white alyssum that will fill in.
I created a well for under the bridge and used some landscape fabric to keep the blue glass from sinking into the dirt like it's done before. I added some artificial grass and added stones to naturalize the look.
Off to the right I put some more faux grass under the arbor and the little fairy garden cart.
I added some faux stems of morning glory (which I clipped out of some floral bushes I got at Michael's). I put a little rabbit next to the cart and I added some fiber optic grass in three places. It will be interesting to see how it looks as it gets larger. There are random pieces of white alyssum coming up quickly that will fill in the blank areas with white flowers.
All the fairies are gardeners and keep things up nicely.
I keep reusing the old Ash tree stump with the dining table on top. The bark is slowly breaking away but I love the character it adds. I've added violas all around too.
My most recent find was this cute fairy on the ladder. She's going to be a busy one around here!
Off to the left is the gazebo which used to be part of my original fairy garden over by the big maple tree out back.
Taking a little break and enjoying the view.
Last weekend I found these metal plant hangers and two hanging baskets made with coco liners.
I stuffed them with faux flowers because they're too small to support live plants. I also set two clay pots by the entryway and added some moss and yellow daisies.
I did a panoramic with my iPhone which caused it to look like there was a curve in the wall but there isn't.
I'm in love with this frog I got from Pier 1 this year. He added a perfect touch of whimsy for my garden.
