We have a little space around the tree in our front yard where we decided to try our hand at planting some flowers. The sprinklers hit that section of the yard, so they'll get some good watering and - hopefully - I won't kill them off.
I didn't want to overplant with flowers, so I decided to create a little fairy corner among the flowers.
I found all my supplies at Hobby Lobby - miniature wooden pots, wood dowel rod, park bench and fairy.
My Marine cut the dowel rods down for me, sanded them, and then glued the pots to the top.
I painted them with bright colors and polka dots to resemble fairy toadstools. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
Then I painted the bench a bright red.

We're still waiting for the fairy to make her appearance!
