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!
