When we moved into this house 3 summers ago, we had one lonely flower planted in the back of the house. Just yard and pine trees. How blah was that?
Well, these "blue" forget-me-nots are the first things to pop up in our flower garden this year. Aren't they just precious? They just keep multiplying and growing larger and larger every year. They are in the perfect place and will bloom off and on thru summer. Soon, the iris, roses, and day lilies will be in bloom also.
This is the beginning of our vegetable garden. He has been putting things in for the last 2 weeks. There were a few nights we had to go and cover things so the frost wouldn't get to them. He can never wait to get his garden going for the summer!!
Now, I am sharing early pictures of my "Mother's Day" present that my son has made for me. I am one lucky "mother"!!!! I started a few years ago making a fairy garden in a bird bath. Every year I weed out the old, and add a new vignette for my fairies. This was last summer's plantings. I'll update later when my new plants have had a chance to grow.
But this year, my son decided to make me a house for the fairies to live in. I put it under a small ornamental Japanese red maple. Now, we have to do plantings so the "fairies" have a more secure place to make their home!
He placed it in my garden last night. All 90+ pounds of it. Then he added a stone wall. There is still ground cover to be added, but, I couldn't wait to show this darling house on my blog.
I even got stained glass windows!!!!!!!
The roof will have moss growing on it eventually. He made a concoction of buttermilk and real moss that he paints on. It will eventually grow and cover the whole roof. He has more ideas to add more "stuff" around the house. This wasn't planned, but can you spy the man in the window? He's wearing a pirate hat!!!!
I now have to go spray the roof to keep it moist for growing the moss............... Keep checking back, I will be adding updated pictures of the "little fairy house". I'm thinking the house may need to set in the middle of a field of blue forget-me-nots? hmmmmmmmm
Until next time,
