EVER SO QUIETLY

Did you ever walk step by step, ever so slowly and ever so quietly, without a single sound in hopes you might see a woodland faerie with your very own eyes?


and you pass through the ferns that tickle your bare legs . . . 
and stop by the Bleeding Heart flowers and wild onion grass . . . 
until you came to the area where you think they may be. . .
only to find a table. . . all set for a faerie meal . . .but not a faerie in sight.



Perhaps they are out in nature like you are, exploring and discovering and rejoicing in the symphony of bird song and the wonders at every turn. 


It's the search, the anticipation, the whole journey that is most important anyway,and the most fun , even though we are determined to see a faerie one of these days.


Have YOU seen a faerie with your very own eyes?

I know my daughter has seen faeries. When she was little and we had to move we had to look for yards that had faeries. This meant a certain kind of yard with lots of shrubs and flowers, rocks, moss, little hidey-holes, leaves, little sweet shadowy places. Our realtor gave us some funny looks when we told her about this! Marcia, I can make you some dolls when my boy goes back to school early in September! We are going to play together all summer! love, Beth
