Fairies in our Garden

Our afternoon was spent outside planting a new passionfruit vine, weeding and building a fairy house.  Well actually, Scarlett was the fairy house builder.  I think it is the most wonderful creation.  Scarlett built the fairy house the other week when Greg was building the shed.  She puts so much time and effort into every garden she builds for her fairies.  I can see our time in fairyland with Scarlett isn’t going to last forever, so for these moments I am truly grateful and I cherish them dearly.

Her masterpiece:

    What a wonderful creation! I love your reflection on how this time won’t last forever….that is sometimes so difficult to remember, and is so poignant when we do!

    My daughter likes making fairy houses, too. She was inspired by the book “Fairy Houses…..everywhere!” by Barry and Tracy Kane. Have you heard of it? Your daughter might enjoy it as well.

      I haven’t heard of this book, but just looked it up now that you have mentioned it. Looks lovely, very Steiner/Waldorf looking. Love the pictures. Thanks for the heads up on the book. I think she would indeed love it. I only wished I had taken photo’s of all her fairy houses! Jacinta
