Do fairies like tea? Well, of course they do! I'm sure the fairies in my garden and especially the ones that live in my fairy gardens enjoy a good cup of tea!
I finally was able to put my fairy gardens together. I found two wonderful cup and saucer planters for two new gardens this year. I was on the hunt for the teacup planters and found one at the thrift store early in spring and one at an estate sale for only $2. Yes, I do love a bargain!
My daughter Gina gifted me with this fantastic book on gardening with miniature plants and lots of ideas for creating miniature gardens last Christmas. It has been fun pouring over the pages and dreaming all winter! Thank you Gina.
This is my first fairy garden that I put together three years ago. The little evergreen tree wintered over and is doing well. The garden has changed a bit, but it's basically the same garden. I tidy it up and redo it a little every summer.
This is my new pink teacup fairy garden this year. I used a thyme plant in this one. It's more fun to add a little live plant to your garden.
Here's a close up of the garden....Mom's Rose Cottage. The fairy that lives in this garden is really sweet and I think she's my favorite.
My second new teacup fairy garden is a bit whimsical. I had to use the lemon house with the yellow and green colors of the pot! I found the little houses at a garage sale with LaVonne when she was out visiting a few years ago. I finally got to use them.
You can get a closer look in this photo. I love the little green frog sitting on the rock. I will be adding bits and pieces during the summer.I think the first thing I need to find is some teacups for those fairies!
In December, I gave my high school buddies a fairy and challenged them to make a fairy garden this summer. It's just for fun, no pressure. My friend Judi sent me this picture to show me her garden. Great job Judi! I hope you had fun.
Happy Tea Time Thursday. It may be time for an iced tea and time to make a fairy garden. I have put together a Pinterest board if you need some ideas....Fairy Garden Challenge.
