A grandmother-granddaughter team has been sprinkling fairy dust over their community, creating an enchanting garden tour to bring a little cheer amid the coronavirus pandemic.

WHEN Covid-19 hit, the pair decided to make small magical vignettes that they could dot around the community for everyone to enjoy.

The fairies’ Finger Lakes journey starts on a street in New York, where a small letterbox contains a list of 14 little houses nestling in different colourful flower gardens.

First stop on the tour is ‘Bernie’s Buttons’, a mosaic house with a bright pink door, made from all thinks sparkly.

Grandma Carol explained that the houses are created using recyclable and other items found around the home and outdoors.

“We especially enjoy doing the trails. We insert all kinds of things, from pebbles to glitter to jewellery,” reports Good News Network.

The journey then proceeds to ‘Finley’s Shanty’ where an ancient stone path welcomes visiting fairies and invites them to sit for a while on a decorative wire bench.

And if they get peckish, they can stop for lunch at the ‘Bean Pod’.

“Fairies can sit by the waterfall and sneak into my grandmother’s garden to steal fresh raspberries,” said the granddaughter.

‘Flo’s Creek’ gives the fairies a chance to sit under the gazebo and read or collect flowers, while ‘Aqua’s Flip Flop Inn’ is perfect for a swim or boat ride.

Each miniature house has a special touch, undoubtedly places that any fairy would love to live.

Hidden under bushes and dug into the bases of huge trees, surrounded by the scent of showy flowers and the relaxing sound of a waterfall, the setting is delightfully enchanting.

And to ensure the tour is memorable, a little trinket is available to take home.

A treasure chest with a poster reads: “Thank you for taking the fairy garden tour. Please take a jewel to remember the tour.”

For those who can’t make the magical tour, a virtual version can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home.
