DIY fairy garden accessories ideas
The voyage to spending seven days with my grandchildren began on Monday. I had twofold checked the car and it looked like everything was packed: suitcase, cooler, PC, tote brimming with craft supplies, and (most importantly) the fairy gardening supplies.
I don’t have a clue who was more excited about creating a fairy garden, my three-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter or me! Avery let out a squeal of pleasure when she saw the Zinnia Flower Fairy, who was hand-painted in rich tones of blue, green, and her favorite color of rosy pink. In the fairy’s hand was beautiful since quite a while ago stemmed Zinnia. Avery had selected this fairy the prior night. Along these lines, she was ready to play “dolls” and take the fairy for a walk over the smaller than expected extension. Since this fairy was from the Cicely Mary Barker assortment, my heart skipped a beat in fear that the fairy’s wings would be broken. It was then I realized my grandchild was so enchanted with the fairy, she was carefully playing with her. Even a little child knew this Flower Fairy was special and creating a miniature garden would be a day to recollect.
Considering that a little child has a short attention span, I had already placed some rocks for drainage in the base of the container and I had it filled with soil. Also, I made sure all the tools, plants, and supplies were ready to go. I have to laugh because Avery was so ready to start diving in the soil with her trowel. Wearing grandma’s gardening gloves and trowel in hand, Avery chose that the Gold and Rubie’s Spiraea should be planted alongside Avery’s Cottage. For the adults reading this blog, I would describe the plants using the accompanying sentences. “In the warmth of the summer sun, the blossom buds will open to a noticeable reddish-pink sprout, while the gold foliage of the springtime changes into striking chartreuse for the summer. Next, we planted a Hawaii Blue Ageratum before the Spiraea, in addition to creating a lawn with Scotch Moss.” In actuality, our conversation was more similar to this. “Avery, take a gander at the really pink flowers and green leaves on the plant. Feel how soft this purple bloom is. What two colors make purple? You are correct… red and blue. We are going to delve a three-inch opening in the soil.” Gardening is an incredible opportunity to investigate the senses and identify colors. The lesson proceeded onto the placement of the hardscape materials.
