Their little winter village has fences of icicles that will eventually drip away, leaving the meadows of their village open giving them freedom to run and play. They delight in taking picnics to the fields of spring and sitting under blooming violets and dandelions for shade.
The village of Fairies have been living in my garden for many years, they are happy here, they don't seem to mind that I don't trample around too often and make all things tidy to our human eyes. They like things to go a little wild, because they love beauty in the wild things and so do I.
I've seen them on occasion. My favorite moment, when they were dancing around the spring daffodils, holding hands with one another and skipping around and round the clump of beautiful blooming yellow flowers. Another time they were dancing in the tree leaves above my hammock. I had to squint my eyes ever so slightly to see them, they hide from most who are too busy to notice.
Once when we were doing baskets of flowers for my daughters wedding, I ask for the fairies to help keep them growing and flourishing during the growing process before the wedding. I have never seen such beauty surrounding those baskets.........
There is also a little tea set in the garden, they love to have tea parties and especially like it when I leave them sweets, a little candy or cookie is always welcome. Today I think I'll make them some hot chocolate and marshmallows for the celebration tonight. Going to be quite an event, I can almost hear the drum and little tinkling bells.
