Some time ago I wrote a few posts about a fairy garden that I was creating in my back yard. It was a fun venture, building the door, sculpting the mossy yard. I’m not sure what it looks like now – I moved over a year ago. Probably the forest has taken over, which is fine with me – there’s something almost magical about nature re-claiming something that has been built.
Now that I have a new house and a new yard, I’m slowly getting to work on some new fairy gardens. My yard is very different from the previous one – much less shady and wooded, for starters. I love my new yard, but since this was actually my first full spring and summer in this house, I spent most of the time simply learning what was in my yard and how it changed through the seasons.
I’ve put up a couple of little fair doors in spots. No full-fledged fairy house and garden yet, because I’m still figuring out whether I want to add some more garden beds, maybe a pathway through the yard, and where to put some new bushes. Oh, and I’ll be taking out the falling-apart deck this fall, so that will open up a whole new section of the yard.
Anyway, it’s a small start, but fun so far. Stay tuned over the next few months for more fairy garden updates!

This is adorable! It reminds me of the “houses” my friends and I would build for the fairies in my backyard when I was little, although yours are way more sophisticated. We would take fallen flower petals, grass clippings, twigs, rocks, and whatever else we could find and stick them in a pile. If the wind moved anything, we were convinced the fairies had visited their new home.
Thank you! I’m planning to create more elaborate fairy gardens and houses in my yard as times goes by. Your wildland fairy houses sound fun, too! 🙂
