Shh. Do you hear that? It is the sweet sound of silence! I love a quiet morning in my miniature garden, with hours spent weeding, watering, and admiring my miniature plants. I never feel completely alone, because I have all of my fairy friends with me, but it is nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the social summertime. |
Do you crave alone time in the miniature garden? I usually do, but this year, I have been searching for some ways to involve my family members in my fairy gardening hobby. After months spent apart, we are finally able to spend time together again. A couple of hours in the sunshine gives us all some much-needed fresh air and family time. Read on to learn about three of my favorite ways to connect with family members through miniature gardening.
Fun for Kids
I say this all the time, but it remains true: Miniature gardens are the perfect place to learn and have fun with little ones! Children love to explore the outdoors, and the fairy garden gives them a safe and easy way to get their hands dirty while learning about weather, insects, soil, and miniature plants. To create a child-friendly fairy garden in a container, all you need are some succulents or other miniature plants, a bag of soil, a cup of water, and a little bit of patience!
After planting their very own miniature plants with your help, your young family members will be delighted to decorate their garden with durable garden fairies, dinosaurs, gnomes, and other miniature accessories. A fairy garden, once it captures a child’s imagination, can keep him or her busy for hours on end. Then, every time they visit, they can go to the garden, give it a quick water, weed their miniature plant, and check on the garden fairies. Over time, you might find that you have gifted your little one with their very own green thumb! Now that is something special they can keep forever.
It is finally June, which means Father’s Day is coming up. Not everyone celebrates this day with their dad, and it can be a hard holiday for some. But I have found that the miniature garden can be a healing place, even for those who struggle on Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, and other family holidays.
Some gardeners create Memory Gardens for their loved ones, featuring activities and themes their parents enjoyed. Others invite their parent over to help construct a miniature garden with a scene from a memorable family vacation, like a beach or lake. Remember, you are not limited when it comes to garden fairies. Miniature garden accessories and garden fairies come in all types! You are sure to find some that remind you of your loved ones.
Gifting a Garden
Many of us are lucky enough to live near our families, but many others are not. That is why the gift of a miniature garden can help us connect with family members who live far away. When you are traveling for Father’s Day, the Fourth of July, or other celebrations this summer, consider gifting your family members a miniature garden of their own. A fairy garden in a container is manageable even for those who have never stepped into a garden. Easy-to-care-for miniature trees and miniature plants add light and life to any home office, living room, or windowsill. No matter where your family members “plant” their gifted garden container, it will remind them of the gardener they love so much.
Miniature Gardening offers a variety of accessories, fairies, garden tools & dollhouse furniture to create enchanting miniature landscapes for winter container plants or your yard. Story telling and imaginary fairy garden plants from 'Miniature Gardening' bring the playful kid out in all of us. Filled with intrigue and mystique each little miniature garden scene you create is a snapshot of such a dream.
