Fairy garden 2012

Can you believe it's July already?  I really don't want this summer to fly by so I'm holding on tight!  Our little one was in half day Kindergarten last year so that means a full school day for her in the fall.  Not sure I'm ready for her to be such a big girl! 

Speaking of summer, we put the finishing touches on our fairy garden last weekend so I snapped a few pictures to share with you.

Our past fairy gardens were planted in a container so this year we tried something different and planted it under our maple tree. 

I got tired of throwing all the plants away every winter and starting over again in the spring so we
decided to plant everything right in the ground.  The groundcover should come back year after year and will be a lot more economical.

The river rock was an after thought when we realized a border was needed to keep the grass out and to help protect it from getting stepped on. 

The grass started blending in and it was looking a bit messy.

Much better don't you think?  Here are a few more pictures I had fun taking with my new camera...

And just for are the past fairy gardens....
