Faeries Have Arrived… #Photography

Not five minutes after I mentioned that the last to visit my garden were the faeries, I got a surprise! This beauty showed up and stayed with mein the garden, even allowing me to catch a few photos. I would swear it set this one up as a pose!

I hope you each have miraculous moments in your week, those brief reposes that, in the blink of an eye, will rejuvenate your soul, quench your thirst for magnificence and encourage you on your path.

Love and Light always,

Pink Moon and Me

Some things don’t need a lot of explanations; but my feverish need to complete this art piece became all too clear after we watched the ten o’clock news and found out tonight was the full “Pink moon”. Yeah, so I’m a Cancer. Like I said, it explains a lot about the last few days.

Welcome to today’s rainbow moment. 😏

Random wall rainbow. I should have noted the sign…

I couldn’t stop ‘tweaking’ but this is pretty much the final piece.

Tonight’s full pink moon but I was about an hour late for the color event.

I just had to get these two ladies together

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Don’t let this one pull your strings too tightly. 😉💕

PS I named the piece Midnight Flight of the Faeries. Guess I may change it to Pink Flight at Midnight. 😊

Don’t Kill the Fairies!

“Every time a child says it doesn’t believe in fairies, a fairy falls down dead,” said Peter Pan.

Do you believe?

Since the beautiful Samara showers began in early Spring, I have had faeries on my mind, invading my thoughts and stirring my soul.

With childish glee

and fancy flight

They dot the sky

to night’s delight.

Like tinkling bells

their laughter rings,

they whirl and twirl

on gossamer wings!

“Do you believe,”

she whispers low.

”Can you follow me

where’er I go?

(Come, Come!”)

A blink, and gone,

she out of sight,

a spiral string

of twinkling light

winds its way to

heaven,

as there I stand

mouth agape, eyes wide,

my faerie soul swelling with pride.

Would that I, my wings would sprout,

and arms spread wide thus leap and shout

to leave this terra far below and rise to join celestial glow.

(Please, please don’t kill the faeries. Quick, clap your hands together three times!)

Enchanted Woodland Trail/#ThursdayDoors

One of the best parts about moving to a new city is exploring the parks and wildlife areas nearby.  We had a chance to do this recently at the Chatahoochie Nature Center.  It was frigid cold but we warmed up quickly as the sun rose high in the sky and filtered down through the beautiful woodland trees and we hiked our morning away.  The first place we chose to walk took us toward the Butterfly Garden which is pretty still this time of year; but I look forward to Spring and revisiting when it is teeming with new color and life.

Then we saw this! A must see for me. Just what made it so enchanted anyway?

It looked like a beautiful trail from the start

 

Then hubby pointed out the first little miracle of enchantment.

A friendly and welcoming place

 

We thought it was a random thing, like the Tiny Doors project in Atlanta.  

That is a favorite of mine that I have blogged about before here on my old blog.

 

But no, it was only the beginning. Around each curve, behind most bushes, rocks and hidden in trees were more and more tiny houses-and with them, tiny doors!  I’m sure you could hear me squealing down the hillside.  Which explains why I didn’t get many bird shots for awhile.  haha.

 

I hope you enjoy the walk as much as we did.

The park also has animal recovery habitats where we saw owls, hawks and bald eagles that had been injured and unable to function in the wild.  And the beaver habitat was so cool.  This fellow was working on his door while the missus rooted for ‘grub’.

So glad you are back Norm.  Norm hosts this Thursday Doors event and always has some terrific doors of his own.  Do visit there and follow the hoppy little blue frog to visit other great doors and also add a link to your own post.  You know you see doors every day! Maybe it’s time for a closer look.  And for a look at some reverently beautiful DC doors visit my friend Dan at No Facilities.

 

Meanwhile, have a gorgeous day whether you are treading water, snow or just plain trudging along.  It is always good to remember one thing…..

 

 

 

Happiness is like a butterfly-lovely, often fleeting and always free.  Just like my new tree friend, it is also steadfast if you carry it within your soul.  Happy Thursday! This is the best part of reality dreaming for me-when we all share something beautiful.
