Fairy Garden

August 20, 2016 (233/366)

"Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where Faerie folk may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Good Night."
~ Elizabeth T. Dillingham, A Faery Song

[Whimsical fairy gardens are quite popular in craft stores and on Pinterest these days. 
Yet it's much more fun to discover a perfect, natural abode for a tiny sprite 
and to imagine that she's lurking somewhere just out of sight!]
