More from the Fairy Garden

As you walk out of the visitor center the first thing you see at Meadowlark Gardens is the Fairy Garden.   There have been some additions and the 'town' has grown since the last time I took photographs.


A Fairy Song

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats, spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

~William Shakespeare~

It is beautiful and I love everything about it! The blue mushrooms, the tiny blue flowers, the bunny in the wagon...and of course, the FAIRIES!!

Lots of work went into that little garden - and all worthwhile.

I am sure the Fairies are delighted with their beautiful garden.

There is no words to tell about the beautiful fairy garden!

There are imaginative gardeners at Meadowlark with all the miniature plants in scale to make the fairyland garden magical. The fairies remind me of the little books of verse with illustrations of flower fairies. I still have a few. Good to see the idea translated into a fairy garden.

I like the rabbits hiding in the wheelbarrow... some animals will do anything to get out of helping with weeding. Leave it all to the fairies... smiles.

Every garden should have at least one fairy in it... and if you have more than one all the better.

Magical post - I really enjoyed it.

Thank you

All the best Jan

How very pretty!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I think I want to shrink myself and live in that forget-me-not field under the blue mushroom.

Honestly this garden takes me back (a very lot of years) and makes me feel like a little child again. I love it!

Rose said...

My mins goes to Lorelei seeing all these things...and I must say I love them, too. Love those mushrooms/toadstools.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I know a little girl I'd like to take to that magic garden. How she would love it!

Mimsie said...

Oh, how beautiful is that and one can imagine the amount of work that goes into it.
The poem makes me think of A Midsummer Night's Dream. We did that one at school years ago.
