A Fairy Garden
For a long time now, the girls and I have been talking about making a fairy garden in the back corner of the backyard. There's a garden plot back there that doesn't get a lot of sun, so it's not a terrific place for vegetables. We have had this dream of filling it with bushes and flowers and a bench and an arbor and paving stones, and then adding fairy stuff like figurines and homemade fairy houses.
We're still a ways out from having the money to put something like that together, but this year we wanted to do something. I went to the plant nursery when they were having their end-of-season sale and everything was half off. I bought a bunch of pretty flowers, and the girls were just thrilled. We spent a very happy evening arranging and planting in part of the "fairy garden" area. Since the plants are annuals, we can start over next year on a larger scale, but for now we are so excited to have our own little fairy garden.
