Landon's Greenhouse was holding one of their weekly Saturday workshops and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott stopped by and brings us this story.
My son, daughter-in-law, and new baby were in town for a few days and wanting to spend some bonding time with my daughter-in-law, I thought it would be a good idea to stop by Landon's and take part in one of their informative workshops. This week, “Creating Fairy Gardens.” Okay...I'm game. Besides, I was getting a little antsy to get out of the house, but fairy gardens?!
Jessica Bohnsack, store manager at Landon's, was the instructor and led us step-by-step, building our own little garden for fairies. She explains what a fairy garden is.
Now, I've heard some definitions of what a fairy is, but I had to ask Jessica just what kind of fairies are we talking about here.
I'm just not sure that I want fairies flitting around our home especially if they're going to add mischief and mayhem. As a mom of ten, six of them boys, I've seen enough mischief and mayhem.
Building a fairy garden looks a lot like playing with a doll house. Now, for someone that played with trucks and spent most of her time fishing, I will admit, it was a bit of a stretch, but it beats watching more snow come in. Jessica says fairy gardens lets the inner child in you come out.
Eight year-old Ella Fedden was there building her own little fairy garden. She believes.
