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.
