Right before it got hot this week. I got a wild hair to make another fairy garden. This one I placed right where there was an existing fairy garden. Why didn't I just leave it alone?? It was so low you couldn't hardly see the minature plants that were growing amongst the other plants.
This one I hoisted onto a brick plinth I stacked. The neighbor's bricks left over from one of their projects have been quite handy for me to use here. They were glad to get them out of their garden. I was happy to use them.
Now you can get up close to see just what is going on in this little fairy world.
The little cottage has a cobblestone walk up to it. There is Dwarf Golden Sweet Flag growing by the cottage.
An equestrian fairy rides by a dwarf evergreen that I bought without a tag. To the right is a Filipendula hybrid 'Kakome', some Irish moss in the foreground.
Of course the fairy is probably trying to keep the chicks rounded up in one area near the 'Cameo' minature hosta.
She should probably be a little more concerned about the row of elephants about to tramp through the 'Cheatin Heart' mini hosta. As fairies would have it I guess all would be welcome.
