I have my eight year old son to thank for this project. He is the one who discovered this fairy house. You see, he has recently become a moss gardener. He has collected moss and made it a comfortable home of pine needles and forest soil. The moss is now thriving in his play room (not far from the oyster mushrooms); he checks it and mists it many times a day. On one of his outdoor excursions, he noticed a moss path under one of his favorite climbing trees and discovered this little fairy house. I think it might belong to a stone or underground fairy, although it did build its house around a little red cedar tree my son has planted and tended now for two years. We might have disturbed it during a picnic lunch, as we saw evidence of a fairy feast on the table outside one of the doors.
Enjoy! I will post photos of how it looks at different times of year. When the flowers are up, it might be hidden but we will know it is there because we saw it in the winter when the ground was bare.
