It's been a while since I've posted something from my garden! Luckily I have something new to share. This past Sunday was absolutely gorgeous in northwestern Connecticut, so Rob, Kaia, and I spent a couple of hours outdoors playing in the garden. I should have been raking leaves or planting bulbs, but….this was more fun! This little area is at the base of the wall that forms part of Rob's barn, which is a new structure on the foundation of the original carriage house for the property (our house was built in 1871.) Up until a couple of weeks ago it was a weedy mess, but recently Rob built a low retaining wall a couple of feet out from the wall with plans to plant a garden here sometime in the future. Kaia's been obsessed with building fairy houses lately, and when she asked us to help her, Rob thought this would be a nice place to do it (the wall means we don't have to get ALL of the way onto the ground–oooh, we're getting old…) Things quickly got out of control as we got more and more into creating and building. We scoured the yard for random bits of stone, sticks, and odds and ends, as well as some lingering flowers, small perennials, and moss from the roof of the shed. Our fairy house now has a patio, a small flower garden, a grove of trees, a sun umbrella on the private back lawn, and a winding pathway to a guest house! Kaia exclaimed several times that she wants to LIVE in this fairy home. I kind of want to, too!
