Fairy Houses... in the backyard!

I believe in fairies. I believe in fairies. I believe in fairies.

What better way to invite the fairies into our lives than build a house for them to stay while they visit the human world?

Sure, there are many important tasks that keep these magical beings in Fairyland, but, every once in a while, fairies have tasks in the human world too. How else would our blossoms bloom and our garden smell sweet?

So, Ana and I have been building and maintaining fairy houses in our backyard. It is a work in progress - adding knick-knacks and furniture as the season changes, replacing worn foliage, replenishing berries as and when they get consumed...

Our initial inspiration came from Barry & Tracy Kane's Fairy Houses ... Everywhere! But once the little five year old fairy-phile got into the spirit of it, there was no stopping her. Ideas, ideas, more ideas... some easily implemented, some saved for another day...

Eager to see if they noticed and stopped by, we camped in our backyard overnight after our first set of houses were ready. Sure enough, first thing in the morning, when the irrepressible spirit of the five year old sent her sprinting across the backyard to check on the houses, she discovered a sweet little note from the Garden Fairies thanking her for the wild nature houses and the grapes and berries and currants she had set out for them to relish.
