FAIRY DAY! - Livin' the Good Life

02:16 pm - FAIRY DAY!
The other night, I woke up hearing merry little voices singing in our backyard. I thought I must be dreaming, so I went back to sleep. But, the next morning this is what I discovered outside!
This is a fairy ring. It's created by fairies dancing in a circle under the moon at night. In the morning, grass magically grows up where they danced.
I was HOPING for this! I've been waiting for signs that the fairies have returned after leaving for warmer places during the winter. Spring is definitely here, and now I know for certain that the fairies are here too. I examined our fountain, and it looked like maybe fairies were washing themselves in it, due to bubbles everywhere. I thought possibly they were washing their clothes, so, on a whim, I hung up a tiny fairy clothesline last night before I went to bed. This is what I found this morning!
Little flower fairy skirts hanging on the line!
And a fairy raft, as well!
I also placed some treehouse sleeping platforms in one of the bushes, and there was fairy dust on them this morning, so they must have been used last night! Yay!
I also made a fairy dining area
And discovered that a fairy family had already set up a bedroom with a pomagranete shell cradle
Dressed as a flower fairy (bet you can't guess which one I was!) I waited patiently for the children to arrive. I could hardly wait to share all the exciting things to be found in my backyard!
Thanks for the "do", Maggie! (and for documenting this event!)
The wonderful, creative mamas brought some delicious "fairy food" to share
We gathered our fairy children in a circle, giving them instructions for proper conduct in "fairyland". Be very quiet. No touching fairy things, just look. Plant colorful flowers to attract more fairies. Help the fairies out by planting their favorite food: chia.
Oh, the wonder of it all!
So many hidden things to discover!
A chia garden to plant
Leaving gifts for the fairies and decorating the fairy ring
Planting wheatgrass in baskets to attract fairies, because we know they love grass! (and great as an Easter basket, too)
Focused little workers
Fairy lunch break
Letting off steam after sweet treats, then time to go home.
Such open, beautiful children. I love them all!
Goobye for now!
