a couple saturdays ago, my little Kyle and i went on the perfect outing! we went to make fairy gardens at Dragonfly Hollow at the Dragonfly Shops & Gardens in Old Towne Orange. they offer children's fairy garden classes the 2nd saturday of every month, and an adult fairy garden class the 1st saturday of every month. and if you haven't had the chance to visit the Dragonfly Shops & Gardens, i highly suggest a visit to this enchanted garden of unique treasures and boutique stores.
i was Kyle was so excited to get to learn about gardening and create the most charming little garden. we met outside where Kyle got to paint his own pot for his garden, then add soil, plants, rocks and a whole bunch of cute little creatures.
here are the talented ladies of Dragonfly Hollow, Kim Domer and Dani Mendenhall, showing us how to make our gardens.
don't forget to add magic fairy dust, a birdhouse and a lady bug for good luck! and did you know that the fairy's like to visit the garden every night?
almost complete. (i didn't get a final picture before i sent my camera to the shop for repairs. but picture his garden with a little birdhouse, tiny gazing ball, a miniature turtle, frog and lady bug.) isn't it adorable!
and here is a short little video of our adventure put together by Kelly of I Heart Old Towne Orange.
and to end a perfect morning. we headed over to Bruxie for gourmet waffle sandwiches and had a YUMMY lunch. thanks Kelly for the recommendation!
