Fairy Day Garden

I  May'd a fairy garden to celebrate
Fairy Day on June 24th.
I've always wanted to make one.
I already had a pretty fairy in need of a garden.
I did a scavenger hunt in the yard and garage and came up with;
 a vintage dish wash tub, twigs, 2 craft picket fences, blue stones, small tiles, acorn caps, beach sand, drawer knobs, small clay pots, rocks, rosemary, fern sprouts, champagne cap, cocktail umbrella,
potting soil, white paint pen, and a glue gun.
I should be able to make a Fairy Garden out of all that!
I used the paint pen to write Believe
 on a smooth stone. 
Believing in fairies is very important.
I created a patio with the small tiles and used
 2 drawer knobs and the champagne cap as seats.
The small clay pot and umbrella as the table.
The arbor was made from the twigs.
Rosemary is the vine.
The path leading under the arbor to the patio is
 beach sand edged with acorn caps.
The translucent blue stones become a pond.
A few sprigs of fern, a little water and a sprinkle of
fairy dust!
Do you remember watching Peter Pan and repeating,
I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!
Happy Fairy Day!
