My Faerie Garden
This was the very beginning of the faerie garden. We had Nellie Stevens hollies here but they grew so tall that they blocked our view from the front porch. When we took them down, I was just beginning to be interested in faerie gardens. Putting in a retaining wall so I could use this space for a little garden seemed like a good idea. it’s a fun space; it adds an unexpected twist to our landscape and—we love it!
Final thought: This little garden has given me many hours of pleasure. Every year I change something; sometimes by necessity (plants die or grow too big, or pests invade) and sometimes to add something special. I spend hours at garden centers looking for just the right little plant, and on line looking for just the right little house or accessory. And I am grateful and blessed to have found something so enchanting that is “all mine” (with a little help from my hubby) in the garden.
