The Most Magical Plant of All

If there were an official plant of the fairies, I bet it would be the foxglove.

They are magical plants.  They sow their own seeds. They change colors.

Even their flower shapes morph from year to year.

They seem to know where they belong and what form is needed.

Or is it the fairies that do it?

Every year I anticipate some surprises from my Digitalis purpurea.

This year there were several.    Some pinks got pinker.

Some whites turned half pink.

Some flower tubes got longer and narrower.

Some seeds sneaked into the bunny yard to germinate and had to be moved.  They are poisonous.

Foxgloves are so charming, they must be magic.

My Friend the Fairy

My friend is a fairy, but she doesn’t know it.

and fairy shoes.

She points out where the fairies have been.
Under this fern, up this tree, upon this vine.

She says she believes in them, which I think was funny… coming from a fairy.

All her friends have an awareness of her fairiness.

Her cat knows purrfectly well that she’s a fairy.

Her dogs are charmed, I’m sure.

She raises chickens in a carousel castle.

I bet they lay golden eggs.

Her flowers and herbs grow like Madgic.

She is surrounded by magic everywhere, but doesn’t realize that it all comes from her.

How can she not know that she has wings?

An Afternoon Among Fairies

I spent a lovely afternoon with one of my favorite people on Earth today.

My next post will be about her.  This one is about her fairies.

Although it is January, we spent much of our visit outside.

She has a fairy garden in her woods, you see.

It is both beautiful and magical.

My friend is like sunshine.  Her fairies/faeries and garden are enchanting.

I hope you enjoy seeing her tiny friends.
