Thank You for sharing! I'll look for fairies in my yard, too! Sometimes the hardier ones arrive early!

I'll be glad to get outside to check on angels and fairies here too. That's a cute photo! It is bitterly cold here today with snow predicted for tonight. March is a volatile month...anything goes but I'm hoping the warmth will move in soon as predicted by the 'experts.'

Well, Susan, it`s been my hobby and passion to make these creatures for some years now, although I`m no artist at all must I say.

Hello Monigue.
This fairy is like most women, does not like being looked too close, and wants to show only a better part of her. But she gave me promise to show more, although she`s as shy as I`m at least.
As you see she is kind of sad, maybe because of the cold or the difficulties at her birth.

Thank you Denise and Freddie you are so friendly and polite.

I think they are probably more elfs than fairies.

Hi Susan.
I have not sold this creatures because this is just a dear hobby for me and there are a lot of failures in a year. I also can`t make them as many as I should like to because I must burn them in a local school`s owen.
I must admit my garden looks strange crowded with different kinds of creatures but I feel very strongly that garden is a magical place, and I try to figure out it`s spirits this way ,I think.

Hello Bill, nice that you liked to visit my garden.
The garden area is about 1000m2, far to small for my needs, and underneath is everywhere rock.
That is why I`m constantly changing my plants, because every year I get passion for some new plant which i just have to get.
Wish you happy gardening.

Maaria,

I've just now seen this thread and how glad too!! Your gardens as well as your fairies are enchanting. How beautiful and inspirational they are. My favorite is the sad one. How you are able to get such facial expressions is amazing.....you are so talented.

Maaria,

Your fairies and Gardens are amazing. You have inspired me. I have been trying to work out a design to do away with the grass and you have showed me a very good example that it can be done.

Thank you for sharing your hobby and your beautiful gardens.
