Little Miss has a fairy who lives behind a fairy door in her bedroom. We bought the fairy door a little while ago and Bluebell the fairy moved in shortly after. Since then, Little Miss & Bluebell have written to each regularly. Bluebell left a small notebook for them to write to each other and Little Miss often offloads any concerns to Bluebell, it’s quite sweet!
Our Fairy Garden
For her birthday, Little Miss asked for a fairy garden for Bluebell. There are so many different types of fairy garden it was difficult to decide on one.
In the end, we chose this indoor garden so that Little Miss could keep it in her bedroom and Bluebell would be able to visit it every night.
We finally got round to putting the garden together this afternoon. Little Miss only needed a little help with filling the bowl with compost and opening some of the packets. Other than that, she was able to do everything else independently.
Once we’d filled it with compost, Little Miss put the fairy house together and laid the path.
Once we tried to put up the washing line, we realised that we hadn’t made the compost deep enough, the poles just kept falling over. We took all the stones up, added more compost and started again. Once the washing line was up, it was time to sprinkle on the grass seed. I’m hoping that this grass grows better than the grass on our front lawn which is being really stubborn at the moment!
Grass seed down, it was time for the finishing touches. The “water feature” shell, toadstool, mouse and tall flowers. Little Miss was super pleased with the final result. The fairy garden now has pride of place in her bedroom window. She’s hoping that Bluebell will visit tonight and let her know what she thinks!
For the price, I was really pleased with this, it’s all plastic so pretty sturdy if it gets knocked, which lets face it is pretty probable with Little Miss around. The garden did also come with a little kneeling fairy which does look good on the garden. Little Miss wouldn’t let me put the fairy on though as she said real fairies are scared of “fairy statues”. I’d definitely recommend this if you have a fairy lover.
