The above photo was taken early spring
On this day in the midst of summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a "fairy garden" class at
http://www.towerhillbg.org/ along with my sister Shirley. These are the days that I will treasure and take with me till the end of time.
The class was taught by an amazing woman Betsy Williams. If you click on Betsy's highlighted name it will take you to her website.
This was what I started with, a basket, a fern and a ivy plant.
what fairy garden doesn't need lots of moss
This is just a sample of the kinds of materials we had to work with.
This was the first swing attempt, I did like the wideness of the wood, but it was too big for the basket.
I thought this second attempt was the right one, sized to proportion.....
But this beautiful piece of white birch was perfect.
this garden and the next three were the design of some of my classmates. It was so nice to see a couple of young adults. The two girls were so lucky to have had the opportunity to do something that most girls their age would have loved to have done. And they had the best imagination of what a fairy would love in her garden. A table set for company, just the perfect magical mystical hiding places for the fairies that would hopefully find the "fairy gardens" built specially for "little people".
The basket to left was cleverly crafted by my sister and the one to the right was mine.
If you would like to see more on these wonderful "fairy gardens" please visit my sister Shirley.
May you be forever blessed.
