    I got all 3 of the water features done today and actually added a little to the fairy garden.

    This is the first fountain I built 9 years ago.  It has been modified a couple of times due to broken parts and lost parts.  I like it the best this year.  This is right below my front deck so when sitting out there you have the soothing sound of the water.

    This is the second one.  Nothing has been changed on this since it was done 6 years ago.

    This is the pond in the fairy garden and finally the fairy house has been moved it.  The top to the fairy house was made 5 years ago and has been sitting in the woods every since to get the moss to start growing on it.  When the waterfalls is completed there is a wood burned sign Tinkerbell Falls.  This is work in progress and other than the falls and the pond everything is temporary.  Just trying out different looks.

    And this little fairy is keeping a watch on the B&B garden.

    I may finish if I live to be 100.

    Wonderful work in progress.  Bette you are working so hard.  Those rocks (boulders) are not light.  I’m sure your back is hurting.  Great job!

    Looking good!  Glad you are finding time to work on the fairy garden as I know it has been something you’ve wanted to do.  You’ll get there!  One thing about it, all gardens are a work in progress, and we are always adding, changing, modifying, etc.  That’s what makes it fun! (I think!)

    I think they are looking great, Bette.  I like how you incorporate the rocks into your water features and gardens…..I know you have so many of them….when life gives you lemons….make lemonade.  My Mom always said that if you got all of your work done, there would be no reason to get up the next morning……lol  Charlene

    Thanks everyone.  There are many gardens to build yet and of course the waterfalls.  I think I am procrastinating a bit on that.

    Charlene would be believe I am out of rocks.  Time for a trip with the 4 wheeler and trailer.

    My neighbor is coming this morning to help me or should I say cut the stringers for me for the foot bridge so may get that done today.  I am no good with cutting a straight line with a skill saw.  Time will tell however as I have a busy schedule today which involves a couple of hours in town which I don’t really have time for but need to help some folks out for a while.

    Looks very nice Bette,  I like your rocks, but I have told you that many times.  I have lots of rocks in my yard, only thing I have to go to farmers fields to get them.  It would be hard for me to say which one is my favorite,
