I’s that time again! Magic Onions is hosting their annual Fairy Garden Contest. Our garden is the same fairy garden that we had last year, but with some modifications.
One major change that we made was the plants. Of the plants that we started with last year, only the thrift and the thyme made it through the year. We did add some bonsai moss that I had leftover from our terrarium, though I don’t know if it will survive the one month out of the year when we get tons of hot sunshine on our backyard. I thought I’d give it a try though, as the Irish moss that I planted last year did really well. It did so well, in fact, that it started to take over the garden and I had to transplant it to our side yard.
This year we have had lots of fun decorating our garden for each holiday with fairy garden decorations that we have purchased from The Little Hedgerow.
We added a clothesline with fairy skirts on it.
We also added a new table set, which we found at our local nursery.
The red bike was from last year, but the bike with mushrooms in the basket is a new addition.
The fairy house is from last year and held up very well.
The brass garden tools and white picket fences also held up well.
Finally, since last year, Sola used some blue gems to make a “river” and decorated the garden with lots of shells and gems.
