A bit of whimsy in this post

If you have a special garden,
Where flowers and herbs abound.
Then take a pinch of fairy dust,
And sprinkle it around.
The fairies will take notice,
And at the end of day,
They'll tiptoe out upon the grass,
And dance the night away.

~Carla J. Nelson~

How to tell if a fairy is around:

Soft chiming bells
A strong scent of grass, apples or wild violets
Strange, haunting or jovial music
Mysterious giggling that comes out of thin air
Mushroom circles
Large patches of four-leaf clovers
You are followed by a crow or a raven.

Well, there you go!

(Photos at Meadowlark Gardens, of an area near the visitors center that delights big kids and little kids alike.  Never lose sight of your inner child).

I like the idea of a fairy garden. Perhaps I should check my garden area a little closer as there has been a lot of mysterious giggling going on out there lately.

There is nothing better than some childish imaginations sometimes. Love the poems and the little house.

Everyone needs a bit of whimsy in their lives. It keeps us young at heart. :)

Dear Denise,
I'm always delighted by your creative ideas, lovely post!

OH! That first photograph gave me an idea. I have several cottages that my S-I-L gave me. I am in a photo group that has photo theme challenges each month. February's theme challenge is tabletop (or any still life). I am thinking about creating a village in the snow on top of our hedges. Thank you for the inspiration!

We are followed by crows every day in the forest . . . fairies?? No, they follow us for the dog biscuits we feed them;-)
