Tulip fairy garden, entry for garden contest at Fairygardens.com

With fall quickly approaching, my summer fairy gardening is coming to a close. What better time to look through what has been created this summer than a cold, rainy day such as today? To make the walk down memory lane even more fun, the folks over at Fairygardens.com are holding their annual fairy garden contest, which is a great way for everyone to come together and share their creations over the past summer. It’s sort of a “harvest” of great fairy garden ideas!

First up is my tulip house garden, created with my daughter and our two nieces when they came to visit this May. Everyone had a part creating something… we told the adults if you want to come see what we made, they would have to make something to add to the garden too! They looked around at random leaves and flowers for a bit, and before long were having just as much fun as the kids!

Mary Helen is still a bit young to create her own fairy furniture, but would just run her hands around the garden, carefully touching each piece we made.

Aunt Lisa made the fairy garland hanging above, and Uncle Oscar created a hammock from a tulip leaf.

All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend a spring day. We are sure the fairies had as much fun living in this garden as we had creating it!
