Supernatural beings such as pixies, trolls, fairies, elves and so on need to live somewhere. That’s why in our garden I’ve built some imagination stations.
We have lots of mature trees and shrubs out back. I decided rather than discarding garden waste like branches and such, I would build with them. Each year the imagination stations grow and change in unpredictable ways. Some time ago my brother recognized that supernatural beings might wish to receive mail, so when he purchased a new rural mailbox, he donated his old one.
It turns out birds take shelter in these structures during bad weather as well, and they are home to any number of insects. Sometimes I even think of them as sculpture. They are a healthy addition to the gardens and as well they reuse organic materials right here at home.
