Fairy gardens are a place of wonder

Published 9:53am Saturday, June 7, 2014

Nothing is quite so magical as the thought that fairies may be making their home in your garden. By planting flowers and adding fairy homes to your garden, you are sure to create a garden that is a place of wonder. A fairy garden can be any size or shape ranging from sprawling gardens to a tiny flower pot. The main ingredients you need to create a fairy garden? Imagination, creativity and a pinch of time and you’ll have a mesmerizing unique fairy garden.

You may have come to the class last year, heard of or seen a fairy garden. Here is your chance to see how to make one. This fun demonstration will be by staff from Dolan’s. She will have items available for purchase or your very own fairy garden. These are adorable and fit in your garden or in your house. To register for this fun class stop by or call the Senior Center Front desk at (507) 433-2370 ext. 0.

Don’t forget to make reservations for the meal Friday June 13. Treat your father this year by coming down to the Senior Center for a delicious meal with friends.
