I've heard that fairies, those enchanting noiseless spirits of nature, bathe in rain drops, love baubles and bling, especially pearls and rhinestones, and appreciate a bit of sweet tidbit every now and then. I have wondered for a long time if I have a fairy living in my garden or that maybe those beautiful butterflies are really fairies in the making. Maybe it's the sparkle, sometimes known as fairy dust, I often see on the flowers or the thimble of milk I leave for the kitty disappearing over night or sometimes, just sometimes, I think I see a flitting of shadow in my midst. Or maybe, just maybe, it's the fact that someone braided all my daffodil stems one night as I lay sleeping. I really don't think Martha Stewart paid me a visit and did it. :)
I wanted to plant some sweet pink and white polka dot plants but the fading daffodil stems needed to be left as is. Maybe the fairy heard me discussing this problem with Bobby G...... I don't know. All I know is now I have these beautifully braided stems. Perhaps the biggest hint that magical powers had been at work, is the fact that I found a string of my pearls laying on the rocks, maybe having been played with on gossamer wings.
Light happy music, chimes in the wind and candlelight is another of the magical creatures favorites things. The Vintage Nest has happy music playing all day long.......we love to dance you know......maybe that is the draw of this place. Or perhaps they heard there is a celebration coming soon. A wee one is having a birthday...WooHoo....a party for Boo. For you see, this morning I discovered more mysterious leavings. Beautiful fairy wands! Why I found one in the dogwood tree.....
And one in the roses......
And one on the arbor.....
Sweet gentle good fairies they must be......leaving the most beautiful of wands for Ms. Boo. How did they know this beautiful child just loves fairies and fairy houses and purple and gold and sparklies? It's magic for sure. Wasn't it Peter, of Peter Pan, who said "when the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy? So there ought to be one fairy for every little girl." Yes, of course, Ms. Boo has her very own fairy to look after her and she lives right here. And could it be, that finding a wand at the base of the old cherry tree, I have found their home? Perhaps that is why I saw the birds gathering the combed out fur from the resident dog......to soften the beds of the fairies.
Make no mistake about it, this beautiful fairy wand was for Ms. Boo for they left a purple sign just for her.
WooHoo Ms. Boo.....Happy Birthday to You!
That's my story and I am sticking to it! :)
