Building a Fearery

So, I put some photos of my current gardening project onto a well known social media site and the ghosts in the autocorrect machine suggested that Fernery should be corrected to Fearery, which got me thinking…..what exactly would a Fearery look like?

A place to experience extreme fear….a theme park of the mind
Somewhere to hide all those unspoken fears, the ones that jolt you into wakefulness at 3 am
What would you plant in a Fearey, Wolfsbane, Love lies bleeding, hemlock, deadly nightshade, red hot pokers???

If I can drag myself away from sun bathing and garden titivating, I feel a new writing project coming upon me.

The Fearey… this space.

And just because I’m please with it, here’s the Fernery project from start to finish.

    Sorry but a fearery is clearly a bird. An over-sized, angular creature with moth-eaten feathers and blood dripping from its corvine beak. It cackles in the night and drinks the blood straight from your heart through its gruesome, twisted beak.


    Your fernery is far too pretty to be a haven of such evil!
