Now when you have been gardening you will be able to say, " I was away with the fairies". :lol:

A nice feature in the garden. I bet children love it.

That's so sweet! I read a quote once: "Always leave room amongst your flowers for the fairies to dance". One of these days I'm gonna make a little sign that says that and stick it in the garden.

Hi Pam , the toadstools came from the UK, a friend from Derbyshire who visited me brought them with her. I,m not sure where to get them in Oz, never seen anything like them here. I was going to use the red spotted ones but these are cuter.
I will ask my UK friend if theres a site to find them.

Very nice and imaginative, HP :) . I have many garden gnomes, toads, etc for kiddies to admire in the garden. Not only it brings joy and fun for kids but it adds special characters to your garden too.
Mouse and Bunny ROCKS!!! :lol: :lol:
