amaryllis heart

Back to flowers, had one amaryllis bloom this spring and the stamen is heart shaped, it was not manipulated. Liked the bright red colors too.

the display

This is one of the orchids I put out with the staghorn fern. After the blooms quit I un-potted it to find there were no viable roots, so we are hoping it will recover outside.

mini orchid

A mini orchid in front of a mini barn, flowers in the middle. The image is a bit hard to read. I'll post the original image tomorrow. I have most of my fairy gardens outside now. They enjoy the summer outdoors and I get to clean up the sunroom. Orchids don't usually go outside, but I thought I'd experiment. I have a giant Staghorn Fern that has a cavity in it's middle so I put two mini orchids in the cavity, including the one above, they seem to be doing well growing new roots. They are totally in the shade of a big pine tree. I'll report back later.

Fairy Wings

These Fairy Wings are actually a close up of dragonfly wings in kaleidoscope form. The body of the dragonfly creates the brownish circle you see. I considered printing this mandala on transparent material, cutting them out and making wings for a physical 3D fairy, but it hasn't happened yet.

peppermint fairy table

Peppermint table and chairs outside a fairy door on a great lawn with bird bath. Found the table and chairs at a closeout sale they really don't go with anything, but it's make believe so.. . .

fairy fire

Continuing the Fairy Theme I made a tiny campfire for the fairy gardens from a tea light, some twigs and rocks. Mandala above is the fire. Just for fun!
