My Garden Fairy


Let' me show you my Garden Fairy. The one who inspires me and tells me what flowers to plant, where to dig, weed, water, when and where to seed, prune, thin out and what to move and where.  No, it's not a dog. This is my Garden Fairy:


She spends her time equally in the house and in the garden. She flies from room to room checking how the garden looks out of the windows. Then, she whispers to me what I need to change.


While I sleep, she  turns the pages of garden magazines, books and catalogs, checks the Internet, and then gives me various ideas.


Being an early bird herself, she awakens me early in the morning, calls to the garden and watches how I work.


She is provocative. Sometimes, I tell myself not to buy new plants any more, but she whispers again and again into my ear, and I drive to a nursery and come back with full trunk of plants.


She takes care of me. When I fall asleep on the garden sofa, she chases flies away from me, keeps my tea hot and uses her hat to protect my nose from sunburn.


At night, she brings pleasant flowery dreams, heals scratches on my hands, massages my sore lower back, pulls out a spiderweb tangled in my hair and whispers: "Don't forget to turn over the compost pile..."
I like her.


Do you have a garden fairy?

  6. Well my garden Fairy does none of those things. I need a new one. LOL! Yours is so talented and dresses to the nines. Hey, not too many Fairies can were a hat filled with tools and look high classed doing it.

  7. Your garden fairy has the best hat in the world, and she sounds very powerful as she directs you in gardening. I think you are her head gardener.

  8. Love your Fairy. I didn't know that voice I was hearing was the Garden Fairy. I'll pay more attention especially about coming home with a trunk full.

  9. Hi Tatyana, I wish I had a garden fairy to inspire me just like yours! I hope that she is generous enough to help you with the bill for your trunk load of plants! LOL

  10. I love her hat! My garden fairies live in the back yard under the redwood trees, an area I designated as the "Secret Garden." They even have their own little fairy door in one of the trees. (That is a great potting bench!)

  11. No garden fairy for me, though I do wonder who dug that hole under the fence to the neighbors'. But if it was a fairy, her attire was surely not as clean and sparkly.

  12. It's lovely to read your story about your gardenfairy. I have no gardenfairy but I think something is on my sholder guiding me trough my garden haha. Even on cold moments like now I drive to the gardencentre just to catch some color but my car is also feeld with plants when I leave. It costs me money but it makes me feel very happy.
    Have a nice day

  16. She is inspirational.
    My Tulips are still on my work bench in the shed.
    I may have to find a garden fairy of my own.

  17. Do you know if your garden fairy has a friend who would like to move to Alabama? If so, send her my way!

  18. Does she also double as a toilet roll cover?

  19. Thank you, my garden friends! Your comments make me smile!
    If they will clone her, I'll send one to each of you!
    No, Bridget, she doesn't double as a toilet roll cover!

  20. No, I don't have a garden fairy - but yours sounds so useful, I need one! Your garden fairy is adorable. And I can't believe how helpful she is! Ask her to send one of her friends my way. ;)

  21. I often thought of a Garden Fairy but haven't found one as useful as yours.
    Hahahaaa...
    Nice collection of plants mixed with figurines. Beautiful.

  22. Very cute! My garden fairies are usually much early risers than me so I don't usually see them, but they do send the wildlife my way.
    I like your collection of odds and ends!

  23. What gorgeous pictures! You must be having wonderful weather. We are having a bit of snow here in Rome and people are freezing and everything is a mess...traffic jams, people stranded, trains blocked, flights cancelled. I am following you, you have a fantastic blog!

  24. No but I need one. Your fairy definitely ears her keep, doesn't she? I love her Victorian sensibilities. I'm sure your dog does his part too. :)

  25. She sounds like a handy little gal to have around :-) Sounds like she's got your back!
