Fairy Gardens

One of my favorite places to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon, especially in the spring, is Mesquite Valley Growers Nursery. It's filled with all kinds of wonderful plants, flowers, trees and shrubs. But it goes beyond just plants. They have a huge selection of pottery, garden art, wind chimes, bird feeders and more. If wandering around and looking at all that isn't relaxing enough, you can stop and pet one of the many resident cats that are basking in the sun.

On a recent trip to the Mesquite Valley I found the most charming little fairy gardens. They are absolutely magical. The tiny scenes remind me of the Storybook Land Canal Boats in Disneyland.

If you've never heard of a fairy garden before, think of it as a landscape in miniature. They can be made in little boxes or in pottery containers.

This is a zen garden. Notice the miniature Buddha statue under the tree.

This mini patio even has chairs set up for some little visitors to sit back and relax.

This garden is a bit more rustic.

And why stop at the garden? It can be fun to include a house for the fairies to add to the magic.

I was so inspired by these creations that I may just have to make a garden of my own for the local pixie population to enjoy.
