You know how it is, you start a project that seems fairly straightforward. Until suddenly, it's anything but. Saturday Mr.B and I got a few plants at the nursery. One was intended to replace the specimen in the fairy garden that had grown so large it dwarfed (forgive the expression) the house and whole landscape. It didn't feel like a big deal, until trying to uproot it caused a veritable tornado effect, upending and dislodging everything the poor fairies had set up so nicely. Even after its eventual removal, some things remain lost. The gazing ball, the mushrooms and more. I put the new, smaller succulent in next to the house, relined the path and set up the birdbath and water pond again. Today I added some new elements. Let's hope the fairies approve.
The umbrella is the paper variety often seen in summer drinks. The table is a saucer from a tea set, mounted on a toothpaste tube cap. And although he's rather hard to see, a little brown dog has come to visit and is sleeping on the doorstep.
