Making a fairy forest

Posted in fairies and fairy garden, 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 !!

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 🙂

The egg coincidence

Posted in coincidences, duck, fairies and fairy garden, witches on December 11, 2016 by Psychic eevee

Well I never,

Our duck laid the tiniest egg ever next to one of her huge ones ,we’ve never seen this before so I looked it up incase it means she is unwell or something,she’s fine,it can be normal

Duck eggs are much bigger than chicken eggs anyway (and much tastier) but girl chickens and girl ducks can both have this happen

FAIRY egg !! well our duck laid it in our fairy garden

WITCH egg !! we practice Wicca and have witchcraft items in our garden.

I blew the egg so I can keep it along with her very first egg I kept and one of her giant eggs I kept,it had no yolk

Hubby saved a bumble bee again

My hubby saves at least one bumble bee a year 🙂
If you see one that appears unable to fly it can just mean it is exhausted,you can give them sugar water,jam or honey,we had none of those yesterday so he gave it marmalade and it did the job,another bee saved.
It is our “religion” to try and save any of Mother Earth’s creatures,no matter how small

Our lovely blossom is out in time for our grand daughters visit today,shame it only stays in bloom for a couple of weeks

We got the playhouse put up ,the garden is getting there,a few more things to do to make it even more magical,I think the paddly pool will be coming out today, just the small one,the huge one that holds four adults will have to wait as we do not have a hose to fill it with.

Fairies,owls and ducks

I forgot to post these in January, it was my 44th birthday and my treat was to dress as a fairy with my grand daughter and my hubby took some portraits which were directed and edited by me, we had such a fun time.
People often ask me if I believe in angels due to the psychic work I do,the answer is no ,to me they are symbolic of Christianity (not that there is anything wrong with that, its just not my thing) I believe that the guardian “angels” we all have are spirit guides.
I do however believe on fairies, as in nature spirits, that is probably down to my Celtic blood.
For years I have been turning my whole garden into a magical fairy land ,I will post photos when it is all done,needless to say our grand daughter loves it.

The rest of the day was my usual visit to see my power animal the barn owl at the owl place where my hubby volunteers, I like to recharge my abilities and knowledge with these wise and beautiful animals,we had a lovely time,our grand daughter was still not brave enough to hold one but she stroked one.

Its odd,I would of thought she would hold one considering how close she is to my duck Willow
