I’ve made fairy gardens with my own boys way back when and also with the grandkids. Yesterday, our neighbors, Oliver & Baxter Phillips, wanted to make fairy gardens. Actually it was Oliver who asked and Baxter, his little brother, came along.
Cindy Johnson Grgetic, our neighbor down the road, is lead botanical architect for Northern Kentucky studio Applied Imagination is an amazingly talented woman. What she sees in nature is not the normal twig, leaf, bark, etc. She sees a window in a half of a walnut shell, a door in a leaf, and more.
It was fun introducing the boys to Cindy. They came back with baskets of natural items for a fairy garden. Oh by the way, Oliver wanted the big piece of lumber you see in the photo. (Not sure why!). We started to work on the gardens but the boys had company coming and were excited about seeing their aunt, uncle, cousins, etc. So I put the fairy garden supplies away for another day….
Made of all natural materials!!!
