Nurture the imagination with fairy gardens
METRO DETROIT — For the young at heart, fairy gardens are a way to bring a sense of wonder to green spaces, evoking mystery with environmental details that make the imagination run wild.
A child wandering a fairy garden may wonder, “Who lived in this toadstool-shaped house under the tree?” or “Who left these footprints trailing off into the bushes?”
And the experience needn’t be limited to the outdoors. One can craft a fairy garden indoors using a single flowerpot, creating a self-contained world akin to a dollhouse or train set.
