WEFOUNDFairies: An Enchanted World Book (Enchanted World)

Fairies, according to the Cassell Dictionary of Superstitions by British writer David Pickering, take such forms as pixies, elves, fallen angels or "the last survivors of a race of tiny beings who inhabited Celtic lands long ago."

Whatever they are, and whether you ever believed in them, these often mischievous and clever little beings are always associated with inviting landscapes of woods and streams.

Fairy gardens have quite an advantage over other gardening projects, in that making them is both absorbing yet entirely manageable even for those without a wheelbarrow load of gardening talent.
