I have come to the conclusion that the children are missing something in their magical little lives. And I'm determined that they get that something.
In preparation, I have spent the week dreaming and researching and sketching and plotting it out. Because a Fairy Garden takes dreaming and researching and sketching and plotting. You have to find the right miniature plants to welcome little fairies. I think I have settled on some. And I have found some magical accessories.
Once I had these ideas gathered, I presented them to the children and I watched as smiles spread across their cute little mugs. And the girls have added their ideas of the perfect fairy garden retreat.
It's a tricky thing, fairy gardens. Especially in this desert environment. But I feel confident we can pull it off. And now is the perfect time for planting. So, we will spend next week during their fall break getting it all planted and built. And then all the little fairies with no place to go will come and inhabit a little section of our very own backyard.
Everyone needs to dream of a fairy garden. I'm confident that once the garden is planted, the children won't want for anything- it will definitely take care of what was missing in all our lives.
What would you plant in your fairy garden?
