There are fairies at the bottom of our garden

And as the seasons come and go, here’s something you might like to know.

There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day.

So listen, touch, and look around — in the air and on the ground.

And if you watch all nature’s things, you might just see a fairy’s wing.

Last week my beautiful, sweet daughter Annalise was 7.

Amidst the cakes and the bunting, the presents and balloons something very strange happened that day.

It seems some fairies took up residence in our garden.

Fairy garden, fairies at the bottom of our garden

Annalise was concerned the door didn’t actually open and they wouldn’t be able to get in. Luckily a wise 7 year old friend assured her that it wouldn’t open for humans but it would for fairies because they would sprinkle fairy dust on it.

So there you go… there really are fairies at the bottom of our garden.

    This is so cute and dainty! What a nice way to decorate your garden and let your child’s imagination run free. Or maybe there really are fairies there =) #hdygg

    Oh Becky, what a gorgeous little post! I must try to create something like this in our garden, I can’t imagine how lovely it is to see their faces when they’re discovered! And happiest of happy birthdays Annalise xx

    What a perfect explanation your daughter’s friend gave her about the door not opening. I make and sell fairy garden accessories
    and often get asked by children if the fairy doors open, so now I have a perfect response, thanks to your post! Love it, and thanks for sharing. I hope your little fairy garden gives your daughter and her friends hours of pleasure.

    I must do this for Sausage, shed absolutely love it. In fact, Husband and I are in the process of clearing the garden at the moment, which would give us the perfect opportunity to stumble upon a fairy door!

    My girls want to do this with the area we have marked for our wildlife garden.We have old dolls furniture to use too as my girls no longer want to play with their dolls house no more.

    Ahhh lovely Becky – and belated birthday wishes for Annalise. I used to imagine there were fairies in our garden as a child – and now Kitty looks for them in the woods!
    Thank you for joining in again x

    That is just gorgeous! Reminds me of Scampston hall if you are ever in Yorkshire, you can hunt a tiny door in the trees, my kids loved it- really captures their imaginations. Oh and Bewilderwood in Norfolk, she would love that. Happy Birthday A!
