A project for the kids… (or not)
If you are lucky enough to live by the sea and take the youngsters for a walk, find some nice round beach pebbles for the garden. These can be cleaned, painted and decorated, then painted with gold or silver markings for such ideas as “Magickal Garden” or “Fairie Garden”, “Sun Garden” and “Moon Garden” or for directions of the compass, North, South, East and West etc etc, the possibilities are endless, simply painted or fancily decorated, and finally, once dry, sealed with lacquer and put in pride of place in the garden. Simples.
For the Little People in your garden
As any reader of Shakespeare knows, in Midsummer Night’s Dream, it is a custom of followers of the old ways to offer respect to the little people by leaving them food and drink on this night. When you raise your glass, state that you are giving some to them, then pour on the ground from your glass, or pour into a small dish.
The same with food – don’t just throw it out, as you would to the birds as this is considered by them to be a sign as disrespect, but actively give them a share of your own food and drink and set it where they can find it. This ensures that if your garden does contain any resident little people, then they remain on your side, and not work against you.
