Welcome to My Garden

... the place where — just for a little while — one can enter the tiny world of faeries and enchanted gardens.
Spring Is Finally Here!

Spring Is Finally Here!

Spring is finally here! It seemed like this was going to be the year with NO spring. I remember a year when my mom told me Michigan had virtually no summer. That was the gloomy thought that entered my mind about this spring. But Joy! It happened! So I thought I would...

A Muggly, A Window Box and a Wheel Barrow

A Muggly, A Window Box and a Wheel Barrow

This is the last in my Pots and Container series. You can certainly see from this series just how much they have added to our garden. All of these planters except the little window box still reside happily in our yard. We are always on the lookout for things that we...

Tried and True Traditions

Tried and True Traditions

We both love garden sculptures. If we had a larger garden, we would undoubtable have more. But, especially in a smaller garden, less is best. So, in addition to the fountain with cherub (see http://www.carolsfaeriegardens.com/flower-filled-fountains), we have...

The Real First Signs of Spring

The Real First Signs of Spring

Most of us can barely wait for the first signs of spring. Crocus, snowdrops, dainty violas, pansies—all are welcome signs. But for me, the first real sign (!!) — and the most exciting part of early spring — was putting together the hanging baskets for our front porch....

Grandson’s Faerie Garden

Grandson’s Faerie Garden

When we constructed a faerie garden for our granddaughter, our grandson thought he might be interested also. So we decided to rework the area, above the retaining wall by the small patio, on our side yard hill and give that to him. This is the area where he played...

One Last Glimpse

One Last Glimpse

Before I leave our sidehill gardens, I am giving one last glimpse of the views along our driveway. We have, over the years, concentrated on our front yard and, more recently, our side and back yard gardens. And, while the sidehill part of our garden remains in flux,...
