Welcome to My Garden

... the place where — just for a little while — one can enter the tiny world of faeries and enchanted gardens.
The Luck of the Irish

The Luck of the Irish

No, we aren’t Irish but this moss, sometimes called Irish moss (sagina subulata), is really beautiful on this path. I was told by someone “in the know” that it would not grow and thrive here. But I have grown it in my faerie gardens as lawns for the little faeries,...

A Walk On The Other Side

A Walk On The Other Side

In my last post, I talked about the pathway and flower border along side our house. This post will show you the other side of the path. This side had leyland cypress along it (see August 28, 2016); this made it the perfect border back drop and wind break. But because...

Whimsey Among the Flowers

Whimsey Among the Flowers

In this post, I would like to show you more of the garden, whimsey and pathway on the side of our home. Inspiration can come from many sources: other’s gardens, garden centers, and Pinterest to name a few. In this garden all three had a role to play. Our front yard...

Cozy Cottage

Cozy Cottage

Another day—another faerie garden. As my outdoor faerie garden gets demolished, my indoor faerie gardens take shape. Our contractor (finally) came today. Dave removed all houses, etc. that were in harm’s way (thank you, Hubby) and that little outside garden looks very...

The General Store

The General Store

Dear Faerie Garden Friends, Sad admission — I have seriously neglected my indoor faerie gardens over the summer! And they seriously needed revitalization!! I finally had the time yesterday to begin working on them. This one still needs a few accessories, but overall I...

Happy Fall Y’all!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Fall is here, friends. And if you are like me, you want a fall accessory “face lift” for your house. Last year, when we participated in our town’s annual fall festival, I put these little arrangements together to sell in our booth. The adorable little shoe planters...
