THE FAIRY GARDEN AT MEADOWLARK GARDENS 5-5-22 - AND A WHIMSICAL TALE

There were a few old friends here, and a few new ones.  It was good to see the Fairies back after their winter sleep.
"A rustle in the wind reminds us, a fairy is near."  I don't know who the author is of this quote, but there's been a lot of rustling lately.
The three Graces were out in front of their tiny houses, chatting away.
Mommy Fairy was listening to her son about his day in Fairy School, while waiting for dinner to finish cooking.
The frogs had gone back to the lily pads for a rest, but other help had arrived to take care of things. 
 A Little Brown Skink was on guard.   
The Fairies appreciated it taking care of them while the frogs were away.
The Dragon also made an excellent guard.
He looked fearsome and could be if needed but, was also gentle and kind.
He had adopted the Fairies and they were his family. 
The Queen of the Fairies could also be fearsome to protect her young...don't mess with that fairy stick!
The Flying Pig and other Piggies were standing guard...
 also the Jolly Gnomes.  
And listen carefully...
soft, musical notes are coming from the pansies...
These pansies were singing a different tune.  Yes, different but all flowers grow in the same soil, where music is One...
and when combined, their notes sing the promise of peace all throughout the Fairy Kingdom.

And so it goes in the Fairy Garden.

  2. I LOVE it ALL! And you spin such a beautiful story, too bad the world is not just like this. The dragon is beautiful. My favorite are the adorable houses. And I have never seen pansies like these yellow with stripes. What a wonderful and dreamy post.

  13. What an enchanting fairy garden. I really like fairies, and collected this and that through the years to make a fairy garden someday. Nel decided she wanted to make a fairy garden in her back yard, so I collected all my items and gave them to her. It is delightful with lights and all. While the Queen of the Fairies protects the magical gardens, the cute gnome is frolicking happily along. What a fun place to visit, Denise.
