Neighborhood News From Fairy Manor

This spring when I went to the Indy Flower Show I was quite taken by these three minature shrubs. Left is Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Silver Lode', middle is Euonymus japonica 'Rokujo' and right is Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Gold Pin Cushion'.  I brought them home not knowing for sure what I might do with them.  I was delighted when the Garden Fairies that live in my garden expressed great interest in them. I asked them to come up with a plan and they did.
 They gathered their gardening equipment and worked diligently. 
Stopping to rest only a short while from time to time under their gazebo to rest. 
Each took a corner to work on. 

In no time they had Fairy Manor ready for company. 
If you are ever in our area do stop by for a cup of tea and a biscuit. 
They would be delighted to give you a tour of Fairy Manor. 
We are wishing all a delightful week.


  1. This is just fantastic, Lisa!!! I had a fairy garden once...must re-create one day! I do believe those fairies cannot be anything but happy there on the Fairy Manor grounds!!!

  2. How lovely is this! I'm sure the garden fairies will have a great time there.

  3. Hi Lisa,

    The show seems so wonderful!
    Look like you still have time exploring around but i haven't been to any shows or events after Chinese New Year.

    I hope to take a break like you too!

    Have a delightful week too and Happy labour Day to you Lisa!

  4. This is so cute, Lisa! The fairies did a lovely job of sprucing up their manor; maybe one of these days I'll get to pop in and visit them.

  5. What an absolutely delightful little garden. Who wouldn't want to drop in for tea there. (at first I was wondering, what is she going to do with all those tiny plants?! smart lady)

  6. Oh, this is so enchanting.I hope a little child or two gets to see it.

  7. Lisa, this is just too cute for words. I must show Poppi next time she visits.

  16. Dear lisa,
    Your fairies did a lovely job . I am very sure their Manor is a delightful place. I would love to come by for tea! They must have dancing on the lawn too....I an enchanted.
    Ever since my kids moved to the West coast we seem to travel west. I must think "East for Fairies."

  17. What fun Lisa! Especially liked to see the Fairies were considering wildlife in their garden too... nice bird house and bird bath they have there ;-)

    Thanks, its been a productive week. BTW we have rain tonight so perhaps it will be dry for you tomorrow :-D

  20. The fairies are so busy in Spring and what an enchanting space they have created!Lisa I adore this wee wonderland a place to allow your imagination to soar!

    Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!
