Miniature Gardens

My grandchildren & I made our fairy gardens.
 I suppose I should not call them all fairy gardens though. This one made by my oldest grandson is a miniature farm garden,complete with greenhouse, growing grass and grazing cows.
 Now here is a fairy garden our granddaughter made.
 This garden even has a name,'Fairy Heaven Gardens'.
 This granddaughter made her own little fairy garden too.
 The fairy looks quite comfy sitting back in her little chair ,enjoying her own garden.
Although our youngest grandson enjoys playing with his sisters' fairy toys, he preferred to make himself a Truck Garden. He thinks the best places of all are filled with piles of dirt and rocks for trucks to work in.
Life around here got pretty busy, requiring me to be away from the gardens, so the fairies and Mrs. Little postponed their garden party just for me. So much to do in the gardens to prepare, so many berries to pick, herbs to harvest,and weeds...WEEDS! Life in the summer is always very busy, but fun too.I hope you're enjoying your summer, and not spending too much time indoors at the computer. Go outside and make a miniature garden , enjoy tea with the fairies, the children, or by yourself as you sit in the shade and remember all your blessings.

Very nice, my Mom made a little fairy garden when my niece's and nephew still lived close by though. It has been too hot to sit outside and can't let our cats jump into our laps though since my Mom is very allergic to cats and animal dander though and not many shady places to sit here.

This is just the cutest idea! I love the little guy and his trucks. Reminds me of when my boys were smaller. :)

Hey, I'm so sorry that I somehow missed your last post. I see you've been doing more beautifying to your haven. Love the pergola style and your carved beams.
I liked all the fairy gardens and the farmer's garden. That little guy tho...that's so funny. No fluff for him! I wonder if he'll excavate the few remaining plants or just figure every laborer needs a little shade! :D

You are blessed to have these wonderful grandchildren and they are blessed to have such a wonderful and creative grandmother who spends time with them.

I love the fairy gardens!!!

Those little gardens are cute - and so individual as are each grandchild - I like their personalities coming out!

This is so precious, Kathy! It doesn't matter if it's a fairy garden or a truck garden, it's still cute!

I have been wondering about you! Glad you are happy and having fun with the kiddos. I haven't ever seen this done before ... all the individual fairy gardens ... what a great idea, Kathy B. You are the best Grandma.

These are so sweet...what a great thing to do with the grands!

Daisy said...

What fun this must have been, Kathy, for both you and your grandchildren! They will always remember this time you shared with them.

This is the sweetest post! I love that each child made the garden suit their own particular interests. :-) My littlest niece always built fairy houses out in the yard... I suppose she is probably starting to get too old for that now. Sigh... can't we just keep them young forever?

Star said...

I like fairy gardens too and love what your grandchildren have done. You are an inspiration to them Kathy.

Kathy, it looks like you have such a memory making lovely time with your grands. They will remember, as will you, and rise up and call you blessed.

You are always coming up with interesting and fun things for the grandchildren to do, and I'm learning a lot from you. I think my two little grandsons would like to make farm or truck gardens!

A. Joy said...

Thanks so much for giving them this fun opportunity! They really had a great time and were excited to show me their gardens last time I was there. I love that pic of KN with her garden!
