I love this little garden. It’s a very small bright blue bonsai garden, with the land and water feature….simple, with a fairy on a leaf, with the garden’s treasure, a hanging candle for night light, and Timothy, the Toad, is sitting on a boulder in the bonsai pond. Sweet garden! xoxo
This garden was created for a friend of a friend. He is in the hospital and my friend wanted something special to take him. The friend/patient is a Christian and so the garden is created around his faith. Rather than a fairy, I used a little boy angel, who is riding on top of a turtle. The turtle’s name is Tommy the Turtle. Also along for the ride is a ladybug. Timothy the Toad is sitting upon a rock in the pond. You’ll see the “treasure” in this garden is a silver cross. Also, a String of Pearls is growing in the garden.
This garden is in a bonsai pot, with the land and water features. I hope the patient loves it and I hope you do too! xoxo
Greetings! I have been so excited about getting bonsai pots in which to create fairy gardens. My first one was beautiful and the second one? Well, it was too busy looking. I thought it was great the day I created it, but by the next morning, I was mortified! Somehow, I had gotten off the path of just “creating” for the love of the earth and started, oh I don’t know what you would call it; let’s just say I was getting crazy! Anyway, I’m posting two gardens that are in the making now…I never know until I know!
Here are photos of the “Fairy of The Bonsai Wood” garden. The light green plant in the garden is ground cover, which will grow quickly. The fairy is “in the wood” – actually a clearing. I did sneak a turtle in for one photo and then the “rock people” or “rock fairies” came in and did their thing where the turtle once was. The treasure is in one photo and is a small garnet set in silver. The fairies found it at an estate sale. You’ll see that Timothy the Toad is in the garden in one picture and in the pond in another.
The next garden is called “Fairy of the Pearls Bonsai”. In the pond, there are oyster shells and a large shell also filled with them. Somehow, it seemed right to bring in the word pearls. Actually, this garden isn’t “right”. When I create a garden it can take an hour or four hours. It just depends. I sometimes think I must look like the Jackson Pollock of fairy gardens, as I put in and pull out plants, fairies…I can really make a mess until I’m happy with a garden. So, when this one is “done”, I’ll be sure to post it! As the fairies say, “Please and thank you!” xoxo
This is my favorite garden so far. It is in a bonsai pot (land and water). I love it for a number of reasons, mainly because of the lines and the combination of land and water, which I think is sometimes important in a fairy garden. The stones along the pond are fairy river stones and the pond itself has stones and plants. I am going to be ordering miniature (live) lily pads for these gardens and asking the new owners to please keep the ponds filled. (The fairies will be watching for me). Another reason I love the bonsai pots is that they are low in height and easier to ship; regardless of width or shapes.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I loved creating the garden. More professional photos will be taken of all gardens very soon! Thank you all for reading this and Happy New Year’s Eve!!!! Fly safely!! xoxo
P.S. You know each garden has an unearthed treasure in it; an item that someone one cared for but has since discarded. Our fairies search the Earth for these! Do you see this garden’s treasure?
