Fantastical and miniature garden ‘worlds’
‘Enchanted landscapes, fantastic worlds, and strange encounters’
Everyone likes cute, tiny things,…gardeners, too! Tiny, miniature gardens are made with trees and shrubs that are extra small in scale and often have miniscule and delightful accessories you can make yourself or buy from online shops The difference is in the details for these fairy gardeners,…who have created tiny houses, whimsical doors, mini parquet gardens and so, so much attention to detail.
The containers are also unique, from baby cribs to wagons and some are in-ground mini gardens.
Arlene Valle says, “You can’t really see all the detail inside the garden shed, there is a shelf with gardening books and a birdhouse and a calendar on the other wall. I even added screening on all the windows.”

Brenda Anderson from Williamsburg, VA says, “I add a little at a time, my Fairy Garden.”
Tracy Jo Anctil A little work in progress. Bedspring into faerie forever tree.
Barb Rosen from Our Fairfield Home & Garden says, “My handmade Fairies are at home in the garden…they come in all shapes and sizes! Nuts are a good substitution for acorns too. You can make your own fairies and ornaments for free from natural materials found in your garden and yard. They seem to take on personalities as I make them. They love their two-story colonial!”
