Bullington Gardens in Hendersonville, NC has a lot to offer anyone but if you are a lover of Fairy Gardens now is the time to scurry over to check out theirs. Yesterday I shared a few pictures from the gardens and grounds. You can view that post by clicking here.
Today’s post is all about the fairies. Bullington Gardens has a fun fairy trail that all are welcome to visit. The trail is open from Monday – Saturday from 9 am until 4 pm. A check in table is situated by the entrance with a Head Fairy who oversees entrance so the trail does not get too crowded. We had to wait about 20 minutes to enter but that just gave us time to view all the gardens.
While the trail is being limited to a few visitors at a time they are also being urged to socially distance to ensure the safety of others. We did not run into anyone when we walked the trail.
Many of the displays were mounted on stumps and were creatively displayed.
There were many doors on trees that could be opened. Most of them had fairies hidden inside the tree but a few might have flown off from the looks of it.
Did you know that fairy washing was a thing? I sure didn’t until I saw the tiny clothesline and the poem about it.
There are a few rules for the trail as listed below
Do not move or rearrange fairy displays. The fairies are very fond of their own decorating.
Do not leave trash on the trail. Fairies do not like litter in their town.
Please ensure children and pets are supervised at all times. Dogs and loud noises can scare the fairies into hiding.
Do not disturb wildlife or vegetation. The fairies depend on the vegetation to build their homes.
The trail is one way only. Please stay on the trail at all times.
If you are a fairy lover or have a little one in your house that might enjoy this cute excursion I would highly recommend a trip to Hendersonville to see the displays at Bullington Gardens. It is a magical place and well worth the time. Of course donations are greatly appreciated if visitors feel so led.
Let me know what you think about this little trip today – would you be tempted to go visit? Chris was very patient with me as I opened every door I could find. Let me know in the comments and remember to Comment for a Cause for NAMI.
