I heard fairy gardens are very popular this year. “What’s a fairy garden,” I asked?
They are, or so I hear,
large container gardens decorated with tiny lawn furniture and trinkets, small plants and vines,
As a place where the tiny creatures might like to hang out on summer nights. Being an essentially hospitable person, I decided to make a fairy garden for my porch.
I chose an abandoned bird’s nest as a more natural bed for a fairy .
I gathered some plants with tiny blooms and leaves and some stuff that fairies might like furniture wise or as lawn ornaments, like sea shells, polished stones, and beach glass.

A tinsy variegated ivy
If the rumor is true, fairies will come at night and lounge around in my fairy garden
and leave me gifts like gold coins, fifty-cent pieces, and other treats.
I planted a white moon vine that blooms only in the dark of night
and gives off a sickly-sweet scent to draw special moths.
I think the fairies will be awestruck!
