A little history for you… the legend of fairies reaches back into ancient times being traceable both in written and oral tradition. Many believe fairies dwell on Earth while others envision them as mythical beings that possess magical powers and sometimes are close to human beings on Earth.
Fairies are said to be from an enchanted island off the coast of Ireland known to be a place of youth and beauty. There, time seems to stand still, flowers always bloom, and there is no sickness or war.
With all of that said, you might still ask what is a fairy garden? I think the term means different things to different people. For me, it’s an opportunity to roll up my sleeves, get my hands dirty, and celebrate spring in a “green” sort of way. Oh yes, let’s not overlook the “child like whimsy” aspect of this project. Anytime I can set my inner child free I’m all over it like bees on honey. Are you with me?
