So we have been working hard in the gardens lately. The vegetable garden is totally finished and the fairy garden is really close! I love gardening, it makes me feel so accomplished and productive.
My husband and son have been building bird houses lately so I thought a fairy garden was the perfect project t do with my little girl.
We purchased a whisky barrel planter to make it in and several succulents to plant. The succulents are pretty and whimsical but also low maintenance. We through in some Aloe plants too for all the “summer fun” that is soon to come.
We collected several stick, stumps and Misc. treasures just walking around our neighborhood. I love the little stump turned fair house.
You can see it in the pictures but the inside of the fairy house windows is painted with glow paint so it lights up at night. My daughter likes to guess what the little fairy’s are awake doing, she usually goes with “they are reading”.
My favorite is probably the twisted roots stick we used to hang a little fairy swing on.
This is the little vegetable garden we have growing. We have: Strawberries, Cilantro, Jalapeno, Chocolate Mint, Zucchini, Squash, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Artichoke, and Cucumbers.
Are you planting a garden this year? What are you going to grow?
I’m sure in the next few months I will have tons of things to say and pictures to show from our gardening adventure!
