Shiny, glittery, glass adorns this new installation in our garden.
The stump at the center of our “stump garden” has been transformed into a pedestal to hold this hypertufa trough, adorned with the same glass beads and scallop shells.
There is a little glitz in the forest to catch the light as the sun passes overhead each day, and to reflect the moonlight at night.
We welcome the elves, fairies, and elementals who live in the garden, and appreciate their participation in its growth. We create this little spot of glittering beauty, in hopes it pleases and attracts them.
The Flower Fairies for M Lady Tara
In spring the fairies cultivate
their favourite flowers carefully.
The beauty we appreciate
can’t happen accidentally.
The fairies know each flowers needs
and cater for them properly.
Though sprung from bulbs and corms and seeds
They tend them individually.
Though most adults can only see,
the blossoms which the fairies tend.
A poet might just possibly
observe some tiny fairy friend.
Children have no difficulty
they see the fairies easily.
