What garden is complete without butterflies? The aroma of flowers and plants blooming and growing in the sunlight are often enough to lure butterflies into a garden. But did you know that butterflies have long been believed to hold their own mystic powers? In Roman and Japanese cultures, it is believed that butterflies are symbolic of the soul. This is why sometimes, when butterflies come to visit the garden or sit on a window sill, people believe that it is the soul of their loved one who has passed away, coming to visit them. To invite fairies and butterflies to your garden, all you need to do is plant flowers and add accessories that will truly attract them to visit. Let’s explore some ways you can create a butterfly-themed fairy garden.
