My yard and patio keep me calm and centered, whatever that means. All I know is that I can snip away for a couple of hours at a time...nap a bit in the swing and back at it. It helps. The Fairies don't mind a few tears. Not at all. They love it when I come to the garden ...alone. :) They told me so.
My little wheelbarrow Fairy Garden is always a work in progress. It was left on it's own through the winter..so now I am working to bring it back. It gets prettier all the time.
I planted tiny little succulents last year..they made it through our mild Winter. The stone is real, not faux.
Many of you have seen my old wheelbarrow. No, I didn't paint it. I liked the chippy look. I found it in a womans front yard full of regular dirt and a few Geraniums. I asked if it was for sale...she said "no" and I said.."are you sure?? Yep...bless her heart.
Here is an all over view...the sun was a bit bright..
Tiny pots, watering can and stepping stone. The gravel..needs a bit of work...
Tiny moss pots with seperate liners are favorites of mine..I actually planted tiny starter plants in them..and they are doing nicely! I see things are spreading as the Spring takes hold.
This is the side yard. It's hard to see, but there is a tiny Fairy sitting on a bench..
A log is good, just in case a tiny critter comes along.
Sorry this is out of focus...*sigh*
She really is a pretty Fairy..
The little stone path winds around from the arbor to the side yard where the birdbath is.
Poor kitty needs some fresh moss. I'll get to it.
Perhaps new Fairies
itty table and chairs..
fresh moss..although it is beginning to come back..I am just so impatient!!!
I am looking for just the right vines to train over the arbor.
The bridge has been picked out..finally and I am so excited.
Here is the issue. I am SO afraid of overdoing with the "items" I don't like the structured look.
I like it to look natural and if I am not careful, it's easy to add WAY too much.
I have seen that happen in other gardens.
Pictures of Marydon, Tanza and I tomorrow. :):)
(no..I mean it this time!) I just look...FAT in all of the pictures...YUK!
( I am ...keeping busy)
