Inside among the rows of geraniums and begonias. Next to the ferns and daisies I found.... another world, a small world, a Fairyland!
Do you see her? In front of the cute little thatched roof house?
An honest to God Fairy!
There she stands in her beautifully manicured garden.
A fairyland complete with a Fair sign and little pink and green striped tents..... you know, for the Fairy Fair.
And just the other day I sold a book that I hadn't looked at for awhile and when I was going back over some images of it I couldn't resist adding one to this post. This page is from the book Wynken, Blynken and Nod by Eugene Field and Illustrated by Clare McKinley. The "Fairy and Child" poem is so sweet I have included it below. I love the cute little fairies on a morning glory vine and the darling bird perched above.
The poem goes....
FAIRY AND CHILD
Oh, listen, little Dear-My-Soul,
To the fairy voices calling,
For the moon is high in the misty sky
And the honey dew is falling;
To the midnight feast in the clover bloom
The bluebells are a-ringing,
And it's "Come away to the Land of Fay"
That the katydid is singing.
Next time you are out and about, keep yours eye open! You never know when you might find a fairy in the most unexpected place.
Happy Day! ~~Diane~~
