It seems gardening has been taking up a lovely portion of my time lately.
Our community garden is all planted and growing….weeds included.
The Battle Creek area Garden Tour was last weekend. It is a tradition for Mom and I to go. We look so forward to it every summer.
I will share those in my next post because another sort of garden altogether is what I would like to share today.
The girls and I had a BLAST building a fairy garden. I think I had more fun than they did!! GIGGLE.
I guess I never grew out of loving to build little forts outside. I think I will do it more often now that I remember how fun it is.
First we took a walk all around the block picking up rocks, and twigs, and acorns OH MY!
Then we painted our fairy houses , glued, glittered, feathered, and whatever else struck our fancy.
Then came the fun part!!
We picked a nice shady spot in the alley in back of our house and built away.
We made a lake
Complete with a light house
There is a spot for their wheelbarrow and garden tools.
They have to travel quite a ways to the water well WAY up top on a rock
Patience’s fairy house is just to the left of the lake.
Then you take the pebble pathway around the Water Well rock to Minate’s fairy house.
To get to my fairy house you just travel straight up the path from the lighthouse
It seriously kept us busy the WHOLE day, we looked up and it was 5 o’clock and time to make dinner.
We’ll work on it some more this summer adding whatever we find.
We spread out a blanket near our fairy garden and I read aloud from one of our favorite books
Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book
It is an adorable book. It is supposed to be a little girls diary in which she catches fairies between the pages.
