Today, I finally got the poor, poor, pitiful Fairy Garden..(the smallest of the two) back in shape. Wouldn't you think such a small spot would be in ship shape in nothing flat! WRONG
I clipped...and snipped..
and snipped more.. (poor stone sign had even fallen over... what a MESS! It's a good thing I didn't try to collect rent! I've become a "slumlord".. :(
dead headed all those tiny mums and whatta job that was...
You would never know it, but this is a little iron arbor...the pathway through it all overgrown and hidden.
The little front yard. (I took the picture after the "tears" were laid.)
Tiny real clay pots are stacked on the bench next to the metal watering can. You and barely see the little wheelbarrow full of gardening tools and flower pots over there by the front door.
little stepping stones back in place.
They are not real and I fear they may keep the real ones from returning. I've already traumatized them when I began whacking away at their forest. BAD me!!
BUT they are going to love, love, love their new soft moss floor inside the house. :)
They will be singing my praises in no time!!
Gotta run ..but it's DONE
It needs fine tuning...I need to remove some "things"..I'm not one that likes too many things in my little gardens.but I was just too tired to fool with it.
Don't try to do tiny clipping and raking and planting ALL in one day!
Once they are all done..there is very little to do except water...and every now and then pinch off a dead bloom or something. They are really low maintenance...just WATER. Thank heavens.
One Fairy Garden done..and one to go. It's going to have to wait a bit..I think someone hit me across my lower back with a baseball bat and I was sitting in a chair most of the time!!
I ordered some tiny potted ferns...you know..to put in the BARE SPOTS!
Shhhh..don't say it! :)
It's something I've been wanting to get done for...months. :)
It's such a neat hobby. I would put a Fairy Garden on the ground under one of the big corner trees..but if I got down..I might never get back up and besides, you can see how well I took care of this one.
There is still more that has to be done..but..I just plain petered out!
Hope you like it! :)
