February 25, 2012 -- fairy house

Yesterday Rosanne Shalf and I spent the afternoon making fairy houses. This is just too much fun to leave to children! Actually, we weren't making them exclusively for the fun of it, but rather for an Ashland garden that will be open during Garden Week. However, it sure was fun! Below is one of my structures: soup can covered with bark and magnolia leaf roof, topped with a piece of a white pine cone. The door is just one scale from a white pine cone. One of the great pleasures of doing things like this is getting to see tiny things--like the individual scales of the pine cone--in new ways.

And here's Rosanne with her castle creation -- unfinished but already enchanted!
