A team of Garden Fairies helped transform Margo's yard on May Day.
Garden Fairy Member Transformations have been going strong for twelve years
Traditionally, we hold the transformations every two weeks on Sundays for three hours. In an effort to recover from our marathon mural making Mother Meres project we took a short break this spring. Our reunion at Margo’s found everyone in great spirits, happy to be together again after our hiatus. The weather was fab, definitely warm, but not yet oppressively hot.

Every Transformation is different
There are some commonalties when it comes to Garden Fairy wish lists, but every transformation is unique. Garden Fairy Margo had a list of items she wanted to accomplish for her transformation Sunday, May 1st. We were able to get three projects done and will be back in the fall to do more.
Thirteen Garden Fairies helped Margo accomplish tasks that would have taken her most likely months to complete
In the front yard Holly and Patti busily assembled and installed Margo’s new arbor. June and Gail were equally focused planting citrus trees in the backyard.

Not everyone is able or motivated to dig, so we always have a sit down project. Usually we do a mosaic piece, something that can be enjoyed for years to come. The Garden Fairy Team is so in synch we can zip off a patio table and a bunch of stepping stones in our three hour sessions. Grouting is done later.
Margo coming from a teaching background had the projects well organized
The week preceding her transformation she went to Tons of Tile in St. Pete to gather jewel toned tile. The crack mosaic team got to work with out delay. Jodi, Shannon, Lisa, Jan, Amanda, Kiaralinda, Margo, Siobhan and Nancy helped bring the vision together. Margo keep the team going with homemade banana bread and fruit and laid out a lovely spread for lunch.
After the Margo’s session some of us went to the Green Thumb Festival in St. Pete.
