Snow :)

Posted in ancestors, fairies and fairy garden, fairy forest we made, heritage, snow on December 10, 2017 by Psychic eevee

Finally,we have decent snow,I was overjoyed to wake up to this, snow in our part of the country is always pathetic and never usually settles

Our garden henge has almost vanished

Inside the fairy forest is so pretty

I do not know if the lights will come on in the forest tonight,I hope so,that will be truly magical,if they do I will add some photos

The only thing that hubby and I disagree about in life is the weather,he hates the winter,I hate the summer,I wonder if that is either due to our ancestry …he is Greek Cypriot,I am Scottish/Norwegian/Polish/Irish or is it due to the time of year we were born ? He was a May baby,I was January,that kind of thing fascinates me.

Here he is,hating the cold 😉

He was all wrapped up whereas I was out in my pyjamas taking photos and I would have been bare foot if he had not given me a lecture !

One day I might do a survey on the ancestry/month born /which season do you prefer thing 

My daughter in law sent me pics of the grand kiddies enjoying themselves in the snow



As I was not able to get out due to my hips and do any proper landscape photography of the snow 😦 I turned the photos of hubby into some nice portraits

The fairy stone

Posted in coincidences, fairies and fairy garden, indigo kids, psychic finds, rocks and stones on October 14, 2017 by Psychic eevee

How is this for strange !

I was babysitting at my grandkids house the other day and I was standing in the garden,out of the corner of my eye I noticed a particular stone ,out of hundreds !

When I turned it over I saw my grand daughter’s initial “A”

At first I thought it had been written on it but it is part of the stone !!

The funny thing is,since she has been able to walk and talk we have collected stones together and I have always told her that the white fairy stones with pink veins on them like this one are “fairy stones” !!

I also love these stones because they are kind of like moonstone

Another sign I think that she will be very happy in her new house ! 🙂

The first sign was finding the birth trees for her and her brother in the garden !

Lights in the fairy forest

Posted in animals, birds, fairies and fairy garden, fairy forest we made, power animals /totem animals on September 8, 2017 by Psychic eevee

The fairy forest we made is so magical now,

I bought some solar fairy lights and weaved them through the trees, I wish these photos were better ,I will do some more with my proper camera soon.

I chose bright white to make it look like “will o the wisps” and also I thought coloured lights would be a bit too much as we have those elsewhere in the rest of the garden.

You can just see a neighbours house at the back of the fairy forest,I trailed the lights through the entrance

Along the pathway inside

This is right inside the middle where the seating is

Lights in the trees

Weaved through branches you have to walk under

We rescued a young hedgehog that was being terrified by a cat and was caught up in some brambles

We checked it over ,let it calm down and when the cat was gone we put it back,the fairy forest is attracting lots of wildlife,our grand daughter saw a frog in there the other day

And look at this lovely old guy

You can see daytime photos of the fairy forest here :

The lights at the entrance

Leading inside

In the branches

In the centre

Right in the middle

It is all hidden apart from a few lights at the entrance, you have to go right inside to see the rest

Fairy cats ! (I have one)

Posted in animals, fairies and fairy garden, fairy cats, goddess freya /freyja, heritage on August 21, 2017 by Psychic eevee

I have blogged about my cat before but I saw this on Facebook and loved the further coincidences ….

We did not know he was a Norwegian forest cat for years ,he has another breed in him though because his face shape is slightly different,its funny how my son called him chili though,considering snow is “chilly” ,actually my son named him after the band “the red hot chili peppers”

I did not know I had Norse heritage til way after I got this cat.

The link with fairies ! Well I am obsessed with those as you will see by my fairy forest in my garden and all the fairy crafts I make,that is probably due to my Celtic heritage,the Irish revere fairies,they respect and fear them equally.

We have a girl cat called Goddess Freya and chili worships the ground she walks on.

Chili does love snow but he is scared of trees ,once refusing to come out of one,he was only about three foot up !! We had to coax him down with ham.

You can see his huge snow paws here

He has an amazing tale

They are such loving,softy cats and they get on with all animals and children, chili loves our duck and his best friend used to be our dog.

Making a fairy forest

Posted in fairies and fairy garden, fairy forest we made, nature and grounding on July 25, 2017 by Psychic eevee

As you know, fairies are a big thing in my house and garden 🙂 we already have the fairy and gnome “rockery” gardens.

last weekend I was with my grand daughter and we were nosing at the bushes at the back of my garden and to our delight we realised that the area is open ! I really thought it was filled in, when we first got the house it was all open but we let nature take it’s course and I really thought the buddlea bushes had grown all the way back…not so !

Looking through

We could see a gap and a tree inside with fairy mushrooms growing on it and ivy all over the ground (grand daughters Celtic birth tree)

She had made a mini fairy kingdom that day (her name means “queen of the fairies”)

********

So today hubby made a start on turning it into a fairy forest as a surprise

He cut a big hole out of the brambles

When he first started,the view from inside looking out,the trees have grown themselves into natural arches and in another part of the garden near the fairy and gnome rockeries I have been training the trees to grow into a canopy/tunnel

(Bad photos taken at twilight but you get the rough idea)

Because we live in marshy “fen” land the pond has subsided,we will dig that out and reset it and put a safety fence round it

His tree conservative voluntary work skills came in handy

In the middle he had to saw down some branches at the back of the buddlea to make a gap to get past it to get to the fairy tree we spotted the other day,if he took the front branches down the whole buddlea would fall down

The middle…there is more behind this

Another view from inside looking out

The amount of cuttings taken from inside

I am keeping these bits to make some ornamental trees
I just cannot wait until it is finished 🙂

I will put fairy lanterns in there and fairy ornaments, it will be so pretty and a nice shaded spot for when it is too hot

It truly is a secret fairy forest because from the front it still just looks like bushes !!

****

Well it is done,it only took a day in total

We just need to reset the pond

The entrance

You can squeeze through that gap to get to more of it !

Fairy altar

The mini pallet stepping stones came from the £ shop

I still have all my Buddha and elephant statues from when I used to study Buddhism, so the other part behind the tree in the middle is now a Buddha garden

******

UPDATE ..TODAY THE GRANDKIDS SAW THE FAIRY forest ,they were very impressed 🙂

WILL ADD SOME NIGHT PHOTOS SOON 🙂

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE GRANDKIDS TO SEE IT,I BET OUR GRAND DAUGHTER WAS NOT EXPECTING US TO DO IT AND CERTAINLY NOT WITHIN A WEEK !!
UPDATE AUG

MORE ADDITIONS

Fairy dolls from £ shop,I now have them hanging on strings to look like they are flying

Fairies from pound stretcher

Little tree house thing I got from 20p bargain bucket in charity shop

I adore these life like rabbits from pound stretcher

Butterfly fence from pound stretcher

Butterfly decorations from pound shop

Since we made the fairy forest we discovered these teeny tiny mushrooms have grown,I told our grand daughter that it definitely means that the fairies have visited at night 🙂

UPDATE SEPTEMBER : fairy forest now has lights 🙂
