Magical Fairy Dust to Brighten Your Days: A Fairy Garden


As the snowdrops and crocuses peak their bright little heads out, I can’t help but feel an urge to garden and create.

Yesterday, my girls and I set out to prepare the front garden. We raked the remainder of the fallen leaves of autumn, and tilled the soil in preparation for the spring flowers we wish to give tribute to in our beautiful celadon green planter: tulips! As this is the first spring in our wonderful new home, we are unfamiliar with the vegetation that also calls our home, their home, and are looking forward to discovering what new growth appears in the coming months. We are hoping for a colourful symphony! In the meantime, my girls and I will be creating a fairy garden. This is an idea I came across last summer but alas, do to our move we were in no position to plant anything and were instead living the life of nomads

as we awaited the last six weeks of our closing date on our house, and travelled through the more northerly reaches of the St. Lawrence River off of Quebec, Canada in the Charlevoix (http://www.tourisme-charlevoix.com/en/), Tadoussac and the Haute-Côte-Nord (http://www.tadoussac.com/en/culture-tourism) regions. More pics and info on this later!

So, now here we are with a new spring…and a fresh desire to plant and garden. As Miss J’s birthday is coming up, we thought that starting her very own fairy garden would be a wonderful way to celebrate the season for her. And since I now have two girls, the younger one will have to have her very own as well.

  1. This is such a great idea. We have discovered the first spring flowers yesterday and we were all so excited for a new spring season to begin. Looking forward to see some fairy garden pictures soon!

    • Yes, spring has definitely arrived. I will make sure to post pictures as soon as we get organized and set up. Still need to prepare the wine barrels, get more potting soil, and plant the Irish Moss. Glad that you are enjoying the sprin weather just as much.
