Welcome to Gill Gardens

You may remember I made a post or two with pictures of pieces of "fantasy real estate" in progress. These pieces were for an entry into a fairy garden contest. In fact, the contest had everything to do with why I made my own glue.

When you come into my sons room at first glance
it looks like a tranquil fantasy land.
Morning is a particularly beautiful time to view Gill Gardens.
The sun comes up on the backside of our house and its warm rays come through the widow, and garden inhabitants greet the day.
But there's more going on here than meets the eye.
You see there was an invasion of zombie gnomes.
Some homes were abandoned entirely.
The gnomes and fairies have had to join forces in order to protect the garden.

Note the hidden ninja gnomes hidden in the rocks of this pathway.
None shall pass.
Many area birds have set up nest amongst some pine cones after having lost their home trees.
The fairy queen has had her wings pulled off and is recovering at Flower General.
Some fun in the sun and sand is just what the doctors have prescribed.
Doctor Tomte is still close by the fairy queen, but hiding so that he too can help protect the land.
 A woodland gnome hides in the moss below so that she is not entirely without cover.
A gnome outpost has been set up just ahead of Flower General for ensured safety.

Cork walls may not seem like much to the giants outside of  the wood but they have proven very useful in times are dire as these.

The fantasy folk of Gill Gardens are resilient and determined not to let their recent tragedy interrupt their daily rhythms.
They still enjoy their nightly bonfire.

 New life is always just around the bend
and in some cases has recently joined the flock.
The root children are wide awake.
 The farmland is still lush and beautiful.
 Have you ever wondered what became of Audrey II (from Little Shop of Horrors) baby?
It settled here in our garden in search of a more peaceful existence.
 Where else could Audrey III

be neighbors and best friends with Totoro?
A blue bird of happiness can be seen
 next to little bear falls.
And below baby turtles frolic in the water as their mommy watches over them.
Thanks so much for visiting Gill Gardens and feel free to come back to visit our fantasy folk as often as you like.
