We added a porch and a swing to give the fairies a place to relax and watch those glorious desert sunsets.

We even added solar power. Our little desert fairy is determined to live off the grid :-) Hubby dismantled a solar garden light for me and we built the solar panel into the roof. I love watching the light go on every night. I'm a mother hen when it comes to the fairies, I need to know they're home safe.

Unfortunately the house is a little bit small for an en suite bathroom so when nature calls our desert fairy has to use an outhouse.

We planted succulents and cacti in a half a wine barrel and added some coarse sand and the fairy garden was ready for the desert fairy to move in.
