Fairies! Oh my! So magical and enchanting! So elusive and intriguing! Were you as smitten with fairies as I was as a child? As kids, we hunted for pixies in the garden and nearby wooded areas. I wished at dusk, to catch glimpse of Tinkerbell flitting about my yard. And at night, I’d imagine a team of sprites sprinkling fairy-dust over my bed as I drifted off to sleep.
Garden Fairies come at dawn,
bless the flowers, then they’re gone.
