That said, one of the places I do regularly visit (and often share with at Friday's Nature Table) is The Magic Onions. Every year the creative, warm and friendly Donni hosts a Fairy Garden Contest there. This year she had over 150 beautiful gardens entered and (unbelievably) she chose our little backyard village as one of her winners!
We feel so honored (and somewhat falsely deserving since it is the fairies themselves who did most of the work under the trees in our little garden corner).
Our garden changes throughout the Summer with Naiya and I sometimes making offerings to the Queen and her entourage but mostly with the fey folk themselves leaving evidence of their nighttime festivities. Our daughter is endlessly delighted to discover what new bit of magical something or other those tricksy pixies leave behind.

Might I suggest you check out the many super creative folk who have likewise welcomed magical creatures with amazing creativity into their own tiny spaces? Donni lists this year's winners here.
Perhaps you or your children will feel inspired to create a mini garden of your own?
