All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
and the Lady Hollyhock.Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,Tiny trees for tiny dames--
These must all be fairy names!
Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house,Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!Fair are grown-up people's trees,
But the fairest woods are these,Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all.
-Poem by Robert Louis Stevenson
-Photos from my garden.
That Robert sure had a way with words and fairies. Lovely!
All of these are from your garden!? WOW, I must say that I'm envious of your beautiful plants and green grass :o) our drought has everything here in NC brown and wilting. Your flowers and plants just brighten my day!
Hope you have a great one!
Perfect pictures to put with the poem!! I loved this post, Kelli, so much fun:-) xox
Loved this poem Kelli, and the pictures are delightful!
I had a few minutes to come back and browse tonight. I cannot wait to bring my 12 year old daughter back tomorrow - she has a love of all things fairy! I know what our next project will be when the weather turns cooler! :) Thanks for the inspiration.
A peaceful post, nice and calming for this hot summer night after a busy day.
i just love your garden. and i love your photos of your garden.
Kelli ~ I love the way you illustrated this poem ~ beautiful!

Hi Kellie, thanks for visiting my blog. Wonderful pictures along with a wonderful poem. I love it. Have a great day, Britta
I really enjoyed all your pictures. They are just beautiful. I'm a homeschooling Mom, too!! I enjoyed visiting - God bless you.
We believe in Fairies too!!! Just started making our big and little Fairy Garden this Summer!!! Very nice !!!
That was Sweet Kelli
Love that poem. All the flowers are so pretty. Are they yours?
I just caught up on your blog and read a few posts. Sorry I haven't been around much(nor posting as much). Life is crazy around here lately.
Al is putting in 13 hour days at school and I'm doing daycare.
Too lovely. You should be a published illustrator!
Your ability to put words and pictures together never ceases to amaze me!
Love your pics...are these ones from your yard??
With the pictures and the words you could write a book. I am sure they are all from your lovely garden. You found the right picture for the words and added another good and fun post to your blog.......Sharon K
What sweet pictures, the poem and the garden pics were a wonderful treat! Oh and your daughters treats look fantastic too!
Kelli, what a wonderful poem with great pictures!!
Oh, your fairy garden is adorable and sooo cute & tiny!
I discovered something magical this evening when we were sitting on the new bench! A little diamond! Yes! A diamond on one of the new roses! I guess one of the garden fairies must have passed by and lost it on its way to heaven... (Well, to be honest, it was a raindrop but please keep this as a secret!) Photos will follow this Friday!
Oh yes, sorry! I forgot to tell you that I really liked that poem, too!
I love poetry. Your garden is lovely.
Such peaceful pics of your garden! It's so nice how you put them and the poem together!
Beautiful photos! Oh, how I wish I could just escape for a day and hide away in a small little paradise of my own - lol. I think I am reaching the point of sheer exhaustion. I am not on duty tonight so I definitely plan on heading to bed very early tonight. :) (even if it means the 16 things on my "to do list" don't get done!)
Love the poem and the pictures of your gardens, Kelli, and please tell Grace that I enjoyed her post very much, too!
Thank you for your prayers for us this week, too. Things are better.
