While pulling weeds in the garden, I bent my ear to the earth. I heard the faintest whisper. Garden fairy voices carry with the wind. You have to listen intently to hear what they are saying.
“We love Valentine’s Day,” they breathed.
You don’t have to tell me twice. I got to work on the fairy garden with little time to spare. The day of whimsy is in one week. February 14th is also a full snow moon so I’m expecting magical happenings in the world of imagination.
I’ve dedicated one of my kitchen drawers to fairy garden building materials. To the uneducated eye, it looks like a drawer full of junk. Look again and you’ll see tiny fencing material, tables and chairs, a small fountain and a dance floor. Magical trees, hearts and flowers live in that drawer, too. When time and inspiration strike, I forage through plastic lids, discarded wrappers and pieces of ribbon and then I get to work.
I challenge myself to use materials on hand, pulling together a bit of this and that. I’m never sure how things will turn out, but always have a great time with the process.
