Mushrooms for fairies and elves

Fairy gnomes and mushrooms

 

Fairies and elves love mushrooms!

Fairy gnomes and mushrooms

Mushrooms are popping up everywhere. There’s a difference between clichéd and classic. While using mushrooms in your garden may not seem like the most original choice, they just fit in so well with magical mini-scapes. I love using these ceramic toadstools in everything from a manicured formal look to a woodsy scene. It’s a great way to instantly create the look of enchanted gardens.

The Little Elf

I met a little Elf-man, once,
Down where the lilies blow,
I asked him why he was so small,
And why he didn’t grow.

He slightly frowned, and with his eye
He looked me through and through.
“I’m quite as big for me,” said he,
“As you are big for you.”
