We've created another fairy garden, for Aunt Troi.* Her kids are grown, so we gave her a downsized edition, in a railing-planter. Starboy insisted on a terra-cotta colored planter to match her yard, and on one that was large enough for the fairies to really set up shop.

If you are making a garden this year, you need to check out Donni's contest at The Magic Onions! More than 75 families from around the world have created wonderous gardens and linked to photos there, and they all are pretty incredible. So many brilliant ideas! The contest closes on August 1.
Also, I've started a massive Pinterest page for fairy gardens, with heavy pinning of Magic Onions contest entries. These miniature gardens are so enchanting and inspirational!
The Magic Onions. You really need to check them out.
