There's An Owl in the Cedar Tree

Last week I spent some time sprucing up my fairy garden.  I finally found a tiny owl to perch in the cedar tree.  I planted this garden in a vintage red wagon last year. The cedar tree came out of my flower border.  It's about twelve inches tall and I cut back all new growth to keep it small. 
I think the fairy is telling her corgi about the owl in the tree.

 I added this beautiful moss that I found at a garden shop and was pleasantly surprised when it started blooming.

These "hens and chickens" grow with a sticky web covering them.  They have multipled and have several little chicks around the bottom.  They are planted behind the fairy house but they may get too large and I'll have to remove them.
I made this garden with a cute gnome in a wire teapot for a gift.  The green spots in the holes are the baby "hen and chickens" from the fairy garden.  I can't wait until they start growing so I can give it to it's new owner.


  1. Those little gardens are fabulous. They remind us of the bottle gardens from way back when. Have a serene Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly
