The Pink Pixie Forest Has Come To Life!!

Hello My Sparkly Friends!!!
Sorry it has been a while since I have posted- The pixies and I have been busy bringing the Pink Pixie Forest to life in my backyard.  We removed a few trees to make way for Mr. Sunshine, knocked down an old dilapidated shed, trimmed the big ugly black chain link dog run in half and changed it to silver.
Then we added lots of pretty crushed gravel and bluestone, hydrangea, hibiscus and rose bushes  and plenty of pennsylvania wall stone for some sweet rock walls.  It is now the home of two Fairy Cottages and garden art space for my classes, a raised garden for next year's vegetables, and a few little outdoor "sitting rooms" which I am still working on.  It is like a little pinterest dream come true!
Here are some fun before and afters!

Before- Concrete pad for fairy cottage
After- Cottage, Arbor and Bluestone 
sitting area and path

Before- Yucky Dog run
After- Raised beds- view from deck



I just love having these raised beds now instead of a big black chain link poopy dog run!!

 Sparkly Hugs,
Tobi and the Pixies!

  11. I came over from your comment left on my creepy heads. I have been reading and reading, but I had to come back to this post. This is a true dream come true. I love the raised beds and that cottage would inspire anyone. How lucky you are!
