Mailbag: Fairy tree
When the beautiful weeping cherry tree that graced our garden
for many years died last summer, I had the main branches cut back
close to the trunk and hired a carpenter to build the fairy houses on
Inside them he added solar lights so the houses light up
at night. My children gave me charming fairy windows and doors and I
planted the climbing clematis and day lilies at its base.
Since I am an artist who specializes in fantasy, I added a garden flag
and pillows made from my images.
The tree might inspire others who want to preserve, in a whimsical way,
the trunk of a tree that has died in their yard.
Thank you for having a look.
