Fairy Garden 2009

Every Spring we set up our Fairy Garden. This year we added a new two story house painted by E and her friend. I also changed the pond from a plastic one to a metal one, made from the top of an unused bird bath.

The new house was lovingly placed next to the pond.
We moved the wooden bridge to connect two houses together.



I sprayed the fairies with gold glitter spray which sparkles in the sun.


I have to include at least one current view from our porch.

Happy Spring! It's finally here, just in time for Summer.

Lovely pictures and what a cool idea. The scenes in the back ground are lovely too. Looks like the mountain scenes I just rode through. Very peaceful :-)

I love the idea of a fairy garden! I have a feeling that if I tried to make one, it would be over-run with chipmunks before I'd finished spraying the fairies with gold dust.

The view from your porch is lovely. And we're just into deep spring here ourselves.

So magical! It reminds me of that movie "Fairies" which I just loved!

Holy crap, that is beautiful!! You are truly amazing. First the birthday party, and now some seriously gorgeous fairy property.

Hope those little ladies have their taxes in escrow...

So cute! I grew up on the flower fairies and I have been wanting to do this too. But I will have to wait until my toddler is not quite so "two." They have a beautiful one at Mettowee Nursery in Dorset.
