The kids and I have been having fun in the garden. As is our summer tradition, we have been making Fairy Gardens!!

When we were at the garden center, choosing plants for our Fairy Gardens, I couldn’t quite get passed the succulents! This often happens… the succulent section of the nursery is my particular vice.

Kitty had the idea for me to make a succulent Fairy Garden… squeal… look how unbearably cute my garden is!!!

All Fairy Gardens, particularly succulent gardens, need great drainage. I started with a layer of large river pebbles in the bottom of my glass bowl to aid drainage.

I added organic garden soil.

 

And then came my gorgeous little friends, the succulents. I limited myself to three and chose plants that had different textures, shapes and colors.

I added a layer of small, colorful pebbles to add to color and interest to my terrarium.

 

And then came a few little delights… a colorful feather butterfly on a twig ‘tree’.

My little succulent Fairy Garden is sitting on my coffee table in my living room and I am truly delighted each and ever time I catch a glimpse of it.

Are there any other succulent nuts out there??
