SATURDAY'S CRITTERS AND CAMERA CRITTERS


I wasn't the only one watching for birds the other day.



My friend the frog and I have been keeping watch for several years at Meadowlark Gardens.  He has been my companion while visiting the children's garden....



as have all the other pretties here.













They all come alive at night and dance with the fairies.






You did know there were fairies here didn't you?



Still a bit quiet over there after their winter's sleep, but there are signs.



I'd be a bit careful of the mushrooms though. 



When looking for mushrooms when I was little, my grandmother always told me to watch out for the funny looking mushrooms. 


There are lots of funny looking mushrooms in the fairy garden.


And the fairies chase after us to pluck the tiny feathers off us....


to stuff their tiny little fairy pillows.



I'm telling the truth I am!





Happy April 1st!


Sharing my little tale of whimsy with the following as they become available, with my thanks to Eileen and Misty for bringing them to us.  If you click on their names you can visit other participants.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
