The other day I went to my favorite garden center, Autumn Hill Nursery - Four Seasons Gift and Garden and saw this:
I loved this! I didn't want to use a Buddha, but it gave me an idea.
|This is how the bird bath looked |
in the corner of my yard in Milwaukee.
But, the Buddha I saw at the garden center gave me the idea for a perfect place for a fairy garden! The useless bird bath would work very well! And, they sell fairy garden pieces in the gift shop. So, I purchased a few pieces with a "fall theme."
After putting gravel in the bottom of the bird bath, I added dirt and some small plants.
My sweet little neighbor girl, Meredith, came over to help me decorate. I think she did a great job, don't you?
Meredith loved the two fairy friends. Me, too! She is welcome to come over any time and rearrange the pieces.
There are probably hundreds of pieces you can purchase for fairy gardens. I have already gone back to Autumn Hill and purchased some pumpkins and several pieces I can put out for Halloween. They had just gotten in a whole Christmas setting. Well, that will work, too, when the holidays come around. I will try not to go too crazy purchasing pieces!
Sometimes being whimsical is a lot of fun. My little fairy garden makes me smile and I hope my neighbors feel the same.
