I love gardening in miniature and with spring in the air I could not help myself. My daughter and I decided to create a miniature garden that we would both love to spend time in. With a cottage garden as inspiration, the entire miniature garden came together in under an hour’s time. We had so much fun creating this outdoor scene. For the plantings we chose pansies, grape hyacinths, lettuce, lavender, dianthus and english daisies. We even used a small little bit of sedum. I’ll share more on that later.
It is no secret that one of my gardening loves is to garden in miniature. I am over the moon that I was able to share with folks how to plant their very own miniature fairy garden over on HGTV Gardens. There I have shared over 30 photos of the garden. Here’s a preview.
Today,after scouring thrift stores and searching for unique items, the kids and I created our very own backyard chicken fairy garden. We took a walk through the woods and gathered moss, bark and twigs. We also had some smooth stones from a recent trip to Sandy Neck Beach. All of our found items would be incorporated into the garden. As we live in New England, we decided to create our fairy garden in a large terracotta saucer. This way, in the Winter, it is portable and we can bring the little house into the garage. We spent all afternoon creating this magical place.
