Enchanted Cottage at the Edge of the Woods
This is my last in-house faerie garden for the time being. I am going to concentrate on decorating for Christmas after I finish this post. (You didn’t really think I was going to stop decorating, did you?? 🙂 ) This is another of my favorite containers. While the basket isn’t quite as large as my largest basket, it is still roomy enough for good plant growth. The only plant that is in temporary residence in this basket is the ivy in front. It is really too large in scale but it will add greenery for the time being. (I couldn’t find the small ground cover that I wanted. When I do, I will include another photo.) This is the Enchanted Cottage at the Edge of the Woods. Wonderful and magical things can happen here if you only believe!
Final thoughts: if your day is as stressful as mine was today (remember, we are having work done on our house!!), entering the tiny world of enchanted gardens is a great way to de-stress and refocus. As you tuck little plants into the soil and let your imagination soar as you add the whimsey, you begin again to remember the joy of simpler times and simpler days. And suddenly the things you were stressing about don’t seem so important anymore.
