October 29, 2008

This morning, in the brittle cold wind and wisps of snow I took a walk around my garden (I have no idea why, I must have been crazy. My goodness it was cold out there)... anyway, by the new “bonfire breakfast” area, where I had a display of cornstalks and pumpkins I saw that the fairies had shown up!

Yes, there attached to one of the pumpkins was a new fairy door. Now, these fairies have either brought along deceased family members or they have a sense of humour and have added their own display for hallowe’en. I’m not sure if you can see them well in the picture but we have some gravestones behind a fence that they have made out of a scavenged strawberry box. Those sneaky little fairies.

I’m sure if the wind hadn’t been blowing so hard I would have heard them chuckling – or saying “boo” in their little fairy voices.

You seem to have the most mischievous fairies I have heard of. They are also extremely creative.

The wee folks must really like you since they keep poppin’ wherever you go. There’s a lot of creativity and simple whimsy there. Gotta love it.

If you find them, tell them to go south for the winter.
