Here are some photos of my backyard fairy village. Many of these things, I have made myself. Some are yard sale finds and some were gifts. This has been a labor of love that started about 3 years ago and continues...... The area is situated under a travelers palm and next to a bubbling pond and started out at about 3ft. X 3ft. It is now, almost 7 ft X 5 ft.
Let me know what you think.

if you look at the bottom of this photo, you can see my backyard black snake. He lives there and wanted his picture taken.

I think you did a beautiful job, it looks like a fairy tale.  I would love to be able to have palm trees in my yard, but here in ontario I would have to have them in a pot.  Those are a lot of cute pieces you have there.

Thanks you guys. It's still fun to find and make new pieces to add.

That is really, really cute!!  I like the variety of stuff you have going on there, it's a cheerful jumble just like a town just sort of sprung up in the yard without any regard to zoning laws.  Grin

And I'm jealous that you have a resident snake!  I'm lucky if I get a lizard in my yard.
