We too are having record warmth (70's instead of 50's). Snow and cold are still very possible but ... I worked at creating the space for the wee/fairy garden today and have the aches and pains to prove it.  Garden progress photos to come.

Look fwd. to your pics, Robin.  Your gnome sounds adorable.  :) 

Patti, do you live in the higher elevation?  We are reeling here with record setting temps this month.. not just here and there but day after day!  It's 81º right now where it is usually 50 more or less.  Been buying stuff the last couple of months but since March can be so volatile I'm waiting awhile to make sure spring is genuinely here!

We had a last day of winter snow this morning.  My fairies are safe and warm in cartons in my craft room.

I picked up a new mini gnome for my lil garden. I picked him up from Target last night. I rarely pay full price for garden things but he was holding a frog and wearing a purple shirt so it was fate that I have him. When I get him move into his new place I will post a picture :)

Carol, I found a beautiful tiny $ store Fairy yesterday and a larger one at a local pharmacy (1/2 price too!!!). Still too early to get them in the garden in my area.

Hi Carol. . . $ store and thrift stores have funded my fairy fever from the beginning.  Even my grandchildren love the thrift store hunt for fairy houses, stones, miniatures and fairies.  Have fun.

Carol, Have you looked at Dollar Tree?  I've found quite a few different faeries there.

"It's either sand or hard pan from being walked on by cows for 50+ years. There is an old pile of cow poo to til in.  It was pasture for our milk cows & beef."

"2 days before new moon plant above ground growers. From full to smaller plant root crops and transplant. They won't grow up they might rot before they germinate."

"Keryn I wish I made that much money then I could quit worrying about things that need to get paid. I have to have a huge sale with all the junk at the farm and more plants from here. Everything there is dead from no water for the past 2 years."
