Create An Enchanting Garden Fairies Village

Updated on June 4, 2014

I find fairy gardens enchanting and work the fairy figures and petite plants into my miniature landscaping. Join me, it's lots of fun.

There Are Fairies In Your Garden

Just like every garden has at least one Garden Gnome, all gardens also have quite a few Garden Fairies. It's difficult to meet your Garden Gnomes because they're only about 5 inches tall and it's easy for them to find places to hide.

It's even harder to meet your Garden Fairies because of their glamor. Fairies have the ability to shroud themselves in a Cloak of Invisibility which is probably why you've never seen one flitting around your garden.

But make no mistake about it. There are fairies out there, living right in among your daffodils and pansies. They're playing in your Petunias and Tulips. And they're napping in your Wisteria and Sweet Peas. Every garden has Fairies...

Enough Fairies to fill a whole Fairy Village!

What Do Fairies Really Look Like?

We've all seen images of Tinkerbell and the Tooth Fairy and Cinderalla's Fairy Godmother and the three look nothing alike. And that's just 3! There must be millions and millions of fairies all over the world. How would you know you're looking at one if you don't even know what one looks like?!

Fairies are actually a very diverse group of creatures. They range in size from only a few inches tall to more than 3 feet and that's only the beginning. Some fairies have been found that are as tall as a man!

Their clothing is equally mixed. Forest and Wood Fairies dress in leaves and flowers and grasses. If they're tall, though, you might find them wearing the leathers of a huntsman. Tiny, delicate fairies can have gossamer wings and gowns made of silky spider webs. And some fairies prefer to live au natural!

You would think it would be easier to identify Fairies. After all, fairies have wings, right? But not Fairy sightings include reports of wings and since it's kind of hard to pin a Fairy down and have a conversation, no one even knows for sure if all Fairies have wings.

As you can see, it's even harder to find the Fairies in your garden than it is to find the Gnomes!

"There's no question that they existed. We have two fairy houses quite close by and we have records of conversations between fairies and people on the island."

-- Sir Iain Noble

How To See Fairies

Most people will never see a Fairy, no matter how hard they try. Fairies don't want to be seen so they make it almost impossible for anyone to break through that Invisibility Cloak.

Obviously, there have been people down through the ages who've been able to see the Fairies. Otherwise, how would we even know they exist?

Some people claim that if you put your coat on inside-out and step out into your garden you'll be able to see the Fairies. You have to be quick though because they can fly pretty fast.

It's also said that if you carry a four-leaf clover or a primrose nosegay you'll be able to get a glimpse of Fairyland. And if you can find a Fairy Ring, stand inside the ring and the Fairies will become visible.

If you're the seventh son of a seventh son you can automatically see the Fairies. If you were born in the morning, forget it - you'll never be able to see them, but if you were born at night you're chances are pretty good.

(Photo of yellow mushroom by Virginia Allain) One place to look is where you see mushrooms like this one from my garden. When it starts to rain, fairies look for a nearby mushroom to shelter from the raindrops.

      My daughter has created a fairy garden in our yard. Some of the things that we have bought for her are beautiful. I will have to show her this page to give her some more inspiration.

      No wonder that so few people ever report seeing fairies...people born in the morning are completely left out and we ladies will never have the advantage of being the seventh son of the seventh son to see them....and the debate of if they all have wings will certainly continue...but maybe if we build a village...they will come...just maybe!
