Fairies choose who may see them. Even those lucky enough to possess a four-leafed shamrock, which gives one the gift of fairy sighting, perhaps only have the shamrock in their possession because a fairy deemed them worthy of fairy sight. They often appear to children. They prefer to live a simpler life in the country but are known to be all about.
They do give great favor to those that help to make them “at home” by providing a garden of their own. They travel at night all over the world on the moonbeams. As a moonbeam reaches to earth it finds a shiny rock to provide the arch of travel. Fairy gardens are built with “shiny” in mind as they love beautiful things. They are most grateful to those that leave them a cold potato, a drink of milk or a little wine.
Fairy gardens can exist in small venues. This one has a small rose bush with ample hiding places and shiny rocks for nighttime travel. We’ll need to add more as the summer progresses.
