Fairy Garden Mania!!!
Every child should have a Fairy Garden! They are one of the newest, trendiest additions to garden centers, yards, and hopefully your backyard this summer!
So, let me start by telling you how Fairies work. Fairies are everywhere, but they are notoriously bad builders. They find homes in whatever they find comfortable. It could be the hole in a tree, under a shady branch, or even under your deck! Since they find the most comfortable space available it’s quite certain to predict that if you MADE them a great space, they would flutter over to it within a short amount of time. So get building! You don’t have to spend any money if you don’t want. (Although I’m going to tell you all about this great collection I found at my garden center, and I’m sure you can find online.) All it really takes is some small twigs set together as a bed, with a leaf blanket, all under a shady shrub. Use your imagination and anything you can find in your yard. Stones could line the entrance. Solar lights could beckon them home at night. The possibilities are endless!
One important thing to know is that if the Fairies do come they often drop pennies where they visited. That will be the only trace left behind and the only way you will be able to confirm that the Fairies LOVED the space you created them!
Good luck building your first of many amazing Fairy Gardens!
