The miniature garden can be such an inviting and relaxing place for fairies to live, laugh, and play. Miniature houses and fairy garden accessories are their sizes, and beauty is all around. Flowers blooming on the miniature plants and maybe even a little fairy dust sparkling on the miniature trees, all ensure that the garden is one of the best places for fairies, whether they are residents of your fairy garden or they have traveled from near and far.
Sure, we all know that fairies are naturals in the miniature garden, but must we remember those other garden friends? Gnomes, pixies, and trolls all have distinct personalities. It can be a real adventure to add some of these individuals to the small-scale landscape. If you have never before considered diversifying your garden utopia, now might be the time.
Have you ever glimpsed at a sparkling trail in the miniature garden, but entirely missed its source? Do fairy garden accessories and miscellaneous items ever go missing in your garden? If these things are true, you might have a pixie in your fairy garden! Pixies are mischievous little characters that are always finding fun, and when they cannot find joy, they make it. You might see a pixie meditating with a frog that has plopped the animal right on top of his head, or perhaps a pixie with a bunny, which has been busy befriending others in the miniature garden. With childlike smiles, pointy ears, and tender hearts, a pixie adds innocence and love to the fairy garden. If you find one, he or she has certainly put a grin on your face. Also, it would be best if you always remembered the Pixie Dust—this magical substance is said to have wish-granting powers.
There is one way to know for sure that you have spotted a gnome in your miniature garden. Just look for the tall, pointed, colorful hat! When gardeners invite the gnomes to the backyard of their miniature houses - they are bound to see gnomes trekking through on a daily basis, working on projects, and helping to improve the miniature garden. These wise fellows tend to wear functional tunics, boots, and belts. Some say you can tell a gnome’s age by how long his beard is, but perhaps it is best not to ask. What if you guess a gnome’s age and your answer is off by a few hundred years? How embarrassing. Best to let these fuddy-duddy friends like Iggy the Gnome and Johnny the Gnome explore the fairy garden ontheir own. Also, remember, you can always look out for that pointy cap!
If you take the time to venture into the parts of your miniature garden that are a little more shadowed, dark, wet, or swampy, you might stumble upon a troll. You do not need to fear, though, because these garden fairy friends are as kind as can be. Sure, Ichabod the Troll, might have a pointy nose and bumpy, mottled skin, and Droll the Troll might, well, drool, but their personalities can be oh-so-sweet. Trolls often wear wide-brimmed, pointed hats, and they pull on whatever clothes found in their dark troll huts. They slip and slide along the swampy rocks in their bare feet, but can also spend hours laughing and playing with garden fairy friends in the miniature garden. However, if you need something accomplished, such as fishing a fairy jewel out of the bottom of the pond, or taming an alligator, there is no better friend to call than a troll!
See? The miniature garden is home to many more characters than your run-of-the-mill fairies. Though garden fairies add light and laughter to the garden, you can utilize a whole crew of characters to give your miniature garden some personality! From the Pixie Hollow to the Troll Swamp and the Gnome Playground in between, there is plenty of room for all kinds of residents in the miniature garden.
