Fairy and Gnome Gardens

I was inspired by this post on making a fairy garden and decided to make some with the kids. Before we got started we need some supplies so we headed over to City Farmers. We haven't been there in a while and it was nice to see all of the changes they have made.

Porter led us to the play area.

They dug through the compost looking for worms.

Lila was the only one willing to actually hold one.

Back at home they filled the pots with dirt, planted a succulent, marigold and some white clover seed in it and added a little moss and rock pathway.

Proud of her work

Porter made a gnome garden.

Looking for a fairy.
