Looking at my fennel, dill, cilantro and other herbs so lush and beautiful before I harvested them I was wondering if I could have made a little fairy garden with figurines and little houses among my lovely looking and sweet smelling herbs.
Does anyone here have a little fairy garden? Would you want to share some of your own pictures here?

Here are some cute looking ones...

I have seen some wonderful doll-house type miniatures for fairy gardens, but for me it's like matching your indoor decor. I think a fairy garden is ideal in a shady spot of your yard (especially if you have children) or someplace where it can naturally blend in to your landscaping.

There is a little girl hiding inside each of us and a fairy garden is ideal for anyone any place :) If it is created in a huge container, it can be a little garden in itself..
I have been considering using an unused washbasin for creating a fairy garden. This can be placed under my coffee table... which has a clear glass and can be well lit...I am only planning all this in my head at the moment.. could only materialize when I move to my new home.

That's an interesting idea, Maddie. The only concern I could see would be to make sure the table wasn't in the path of direct sunlight so that the glass doesn't burn your plants. You could also have a little fairy garden in a terrarium if you don't have a lot of space.

Oh, definitely there is:D . When I was a child I was always looking for fairies in tulip flowers. I don't do this anymore but I like to imagine they're really there, hidden in petals:)

LOL, Zigs, let me know the results of the scan :D

@ Channel, Nope there may not be much sunlight at all there... there is a lot of light but no direct sunlight. Yup the terrarium is also great for a fairy garden. We just need a bit of creativity to create something really beautiful.
@ LOL Claudine... I would also search for fairies in flowers and would never believe my mother that those things never existed...I knd of never gave up for a long time,.. :D

OMG I can't stand it anymore, more snow on top of a pile of snow.... I just want to get working on the front yard by the big old tree stump. Want to make a fairy Hotel out of it, complete with a little stream that flows to the little pond, where the sun is always shining, the grass always green, and little fairies dance in the sun beams...... there coming to take me away now.....!

I really like this one.. All of you have shown images of beautiful Fairy Gardens, and guess what? The Fairies are there, you just can't see them. ;)

I used to have a small clay house that doubled as an incense burner (Log Cabin Incense Burner).. you placed the cone-shaped incense on the bottom (or floor) and put the top back on (the house with a chimney) and as the incense would burn, the smoke was released through the chimney.. it would look really good in the Fairy Garden..
