I had a discussion with our fairies amidst all of their flitting around yesterday,
and asked them if they might help us out.
( I know... their first full day back, and already I've asked them to do me a favor!)
I had wanted to give you a fairies'-eye view of our hundred acre wood...
where, of course, our fairies spend their winters.
There are many hollow trees and hollowed-out stumps that make the perfect
chambers for winter slumber.
The softest of moss is used as a bed and pillow,
with a fuzzy sycamore leaf for a blanket.
Their winter snacks are stored in acorn canisters with acorn caps to keep what's inside
fresh for months.
Of course they willingly share their stash with mice and squirrels.
Fairies are never stingy.
But, I digress.
I was able to convince one of our more adventurous fairies to fly as high as she could
with a tiny video camera and give us a look at the woods and surrounding lands.
This is what she brought back to me:
This is the land that we love so deeply...
where the magic unfolds each and every day.
Hopefully the video gives you a better perspective.
Now, just imagine it with all of the leaves on the trees....
it is spectacular!
And it won't be long now....
