Kye’s Fairy Garden…

Kye has always loved, The Hollyhock Wall by Martin Waddell… It really is the sweetest little book. As soon as he opened his eyes this morning he wanted to know if I had a pot for him to build his garden in. He was inspired to build a fairy garden just like the one he has seen inside this book… This was a project for Richard and Kye, it was so sweet to see them building the garden together. Erin made a bridge from matches, a ribbon was used for a stream, a little house structure was built and plants planted here and there with some moss. Erin also made some people from corks and now they live happily in this fairy garden by our front door…. Kye is the happiest five year old in the world and declared that this was THE best day ever! I will just have to talk very nicely to our 16 chickens and ask them to please not go and scratch in this pot as the fairies live there now:)

Take care…

    Oh how wonderful! I have an empty barrel just waiting for plants. This is a perfect August activity for the boys – I’ll have to look for the book, too.

    How sweet! I love that he declared it the best day ever! Such precious innocence. We made a fairy garden last summer and my little ones really enjoyed it all season.

    I love fairy gardens! When my daughter was small we made many of them. When my niece and nephew would come to visit, we would make and hide one for them to find! Oh the look on their faces!

    Oh, I love it! I am seeing so many of these sweet little fairy gardens around. I really need to make one with my girls.

    The garden itself is a beautiful piece of work. I’d have loved it as a child. And I’d love it now. But i think what made it the best day ever was the working side by side- the everyone focused together and laughing and dreaming together. That is the best for me. Always.

    Kye’s garden is gorgeous, how wonderful that everyone helped to make it special for him. I miss 5 yr olds. Good luck with the chickens!

    I’m such a fan of Faerie Gardens! Everything in miniature. Big ideas from our little people while they create. Kye has created some more wonderful, life long memories.
    I’m going to have to find this book now…
