This make believe part part of the wood gives endless squeals of delight to visiting children

does anyone else have a "fun" area? I would love more ideas!

    A fairy dell LP?    Giant mushrooms made from wood and painted in bright colours among the ferns.

    Wooden fairy house with pine cones stuck onto roof.  A moss garden with stones, bark,or seashells for paths....some primroses in the garden or small violets......a small plant pot man to look after the garden....maybe holding an old kitchen fork etc etc

    Mine are in the bit of our garden that borders a public footpath ....they rarely get noticed image  In fact it took my own family 6 months to spot they were there.  This chap, however, is a little more obvious, if you're looking in the right direction

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Here's where I live.....

    Good  to know my relations are being well catered for....image

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    What a lovely woodland you have in your garden Lily image.  Is there a path or trail going through it?  Maybe you could create little fairy hamlet's along the way, each with it's own theme?  

    I remember a book that my Grandma gave me as a child "Flower Fairies". It had lovely illustrations of "the bluebell fairies" for example.  You could have "fern fairies" setting up home in that patch of ferns.  

    Little handpainted signposts, guiding the way could be nice.

    If you allow children into the area make sure you comply with all Elf and Safety requirements....................................................

    Unfortunately Tetters has taken her stumpery with her (don't tell me, I don't want to know) but she had some great stuff going on. Little ladders and everything.
