This is a small Fairy Garden my son and I put together at the beginning of January and kept indoors until it was warm enough to set out on the patio.

Thank you. We have a dead pine tree in the wooded area of the back yard. Occasionally it drops sheets of bark. So my son thought the 'Fairy' who moved in might appreciate a roof made from it. hehe.

You just gave me a great idea cue - that is a beauty. I started my fairy house with harry lauder for the frame, quite interesting, but wasn't sure what to use for cover, now I know, bark!
Thanks.

well, technically, they are all flowering, but in the pic, the ones without blooms are:

front: Irish Moss, Right: Chamomile, and Right Back: Lavender.
