|A fairy door!|
Almost immediately, I saw a fairy door in one of the trees.
Some were firmly closed...others were just slightly ajar.
This one has a lovely little pathway leading up to the doorstep...
while this one was very well hidden.
|The lily of the valley fairy|
by Cicely Mary Barker
I know there was magic about in the woods today. For one thing, I could feel it in the air! However, the thing which clinched it for me, and which made me very happy, was brought to me by the Lily-of-the-Valley Fairy because I found another small patch of Lily-of-the-Valley flowers - smaller than the first ones which I found a few weeks ago - but it looks healthy! They are some way off flowering, but I have hopes.
I know that to so many of you Lily of the Valley are invasive, a nuisance - but to me they are a very welcome reminder of my mother, I also happen to love those sweet little bells and their fragrance.
I went into the wood to discover my inner child - I had a lot of simple fun - the fairies of the wood gave me the gift of the one flower which really matters to me.
I dare you to give it a go!
