A dream fairy house in a tree...

We loved the sweet little hidden fairy doors in Chris Beardshaw's Furzey garden when we visited the Chelsea Flower show...


With a little pottering around the web, we've realised that with a few natural materials, a little bit of ingenuity you can make a house for the little folk like these brilliant examples - we love the pumpkin house! And if you're lucky enough to be on the East Coast of the USA this summer, why not visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens? There's a Fairy House Festival there in August.

There's even a calendar of these beautiful tiny houses - if you can't get to Maine, this might be the next best thing!

And this book may provide just the inspiration you need to create your own fairy des-res in your back garden!
