fairy garden

A friend assembled a fairy garden kit for my younger son as a holiday gift.  We've been waiting for a break in the cold, rainy days to create our fairy haven -- so yesterday, when the sun broke through the clouds, we pulled out our gardening gloves and seized the moment.

The kit our friend gave us included three small wooden houses, a fairy-sized bucket & gardening tools, tiny pots & pans, little striped flags to create a festive bunting, many sorts of seashells for decorative paving stones, and of course, the essential jar of fairy glitter.  My son was overjoyed with this project, and since the garden's completion, has been checking frequently for signs that the fairies have accepted his invitation to take up residence.  Thank you dear E. for this marvelous gift.

Spring is almost here...
