"The Most Simple Way to Create a Fairy Garden" is a text that gives the reader a basic overview of what needs to be done to create a magical garden. To some a magical garden involves the inclusion of all the elements while to others it simply means putting in brightly colored flowers and having some well placed fairy ornaments and lights to create that magical look. The author is well aware that gardening is not for everyone but has shown with this text that it can easily be done by anyone. With the convenience of garden outlets that have plants ready to plane and ornaments ready to select it is not that difficult to get that perfect garden anymore. One simply has to plant and maintain. Gardening is a great way to relieve stress and the end result can be shared with others. This book shows how you can get the process started. About the Author: Marie St. Claire has loved gardening ever since she learned what one was as a toddler and she spent a lot of time with her mother Elizabeth who did gardening as a hobby. From her mother she learned how to make a flower garden for the beauty of it, a vegetable garden for the self sufficiency and she also learned how to make those whimsical gardens filled with brightly colored flowers and strategically placed fairies, gnomes and other ornaments. She carried this hobby into her adult life and made it her point of duty to share this hobby with as many interested persons that she could find. Stemming from this she also made the decision to create a book that would give a bit more information on gardening and what someone would need to create a great whimsical, magical garden.
