How to plant a Fairy garden!

It's that time of year again! It's time to garden again. It was so hot today but there I was in my big black gardening hat pulling weeds and digging in the dirt. There is just something so satisfying about digging in the dirt with your bare hands! I started with the weeding and had to move around a few flowers and transplant some runaway Bee Balm to some containers in my backyard. 

After all the weeding was finished I sent a message to a good friend who is a gardening expert about what plants I should plant in my tiny front garden and she responded with "why not plant a fairy garden there?" Of course! Why not plant a fairy garden?! And off I went to the local nursery to purchase lots of purple flowers. 

Believe it or not, I had this little ceramic cottage and gnome at home already. They were both thrift store finds from a while ago. The cottage reminded me of Hagrid's cottage when I bought it. All I had to add was the flowers. I am really happy about how it turned out. So happy that I think I should plan another fairy garden in the back yard! And wouldn't it be fun to do a haunted fairy house next time? Hmmm...


  1. I love it! I love it! I love it! And I bet the faeries do, too!

  2. I love what you did! Wish I had a garden :(
