Fred and I have been working on the garden between rain drops since spring. We decided to make a few changes - eliminate some beds - so the garden is more manageable. You know the older you get the quicker you tire! It had a small water feature that he has taken out and is putting in a new pond that a kind neighbor no longer wanted. I have been weeding and weeding as a result of long neglect, but it is starting to take shape. When finished I think I will plant a row of different colored Iris.

Fairy Garden

The fairy garden is coming along fine. The grandchildren love hearing all the folklore about the plants in the garden, such as the foxglove which the fairies use for their clothes. Then there is the thyme that is a must for them to sleep upon. One evening as the fireflies started to appear, my grandson got very excited and was sure he saw the fairies moving about the garden. We watched and listened as we talked about how the fairies love to dance and needed the light to see and the bluebells provided their music. We also placed some jewels about the garden because they like shiny objects, but made sure we did not add any metal items. We also added a gazing ball because as you know fairies are very vain! It is a great way to get the kids involved with gardening and add a little adventure at the same time.
