Fairy Garden for the Shade

I was visiting my mom this week, and took some pictures of her fairy garden that I thought you might like, especially if you have a shady spot. My mom has her’s on her veranda, where it doesn’t get much sun. She had her little house that we made her last year –see how we made it here, and she picked up a few things from the miniature doll house store.

She made a little path from the house to the fairy clothesline out of some wood rounds, sawed from a not-too-big branch. The shade loving plant beside the little house is a Maiden Hair Fern.

She also used a Miniature Fushia, and underneath added some pretty gravel and a sweet chair for a little gardening fairy to rest in, along with her gardening tools of a shovel, a rake, and a little red pail.

Behind the chair area, she tucked in her “Fairies Welcome” stamped spoon.

The other little plants she used were some Baby Tears, and Alyssum, and at the side of the house some rubber boots and little shovel.

The pot is tucked in beside some other shade loving pots of hosta, and near a little bench where it can be easy seen and enjoyed.

If you’ve got a shady spot, here’s a sweet idea for a little fairy garden. See the rest of my mom’s garden here and here. With a fairy garden in the shade, life really is a party.
