Good Fences in the Forest

From somewhere in the deep forest, around a crooked creek and high upon the branches of an old oak tree, you'll uncover nature's gifts hanging free.
Surely you'll see butterflies and be noticed by happy bees.

You are entering the Fairy Wing Forest.

Artsy Fairy Houses abound right before your eyes, as well as showing off from albums for your viewing pleasure.  Ultimately, each builder if you should inquire to contract one or more of their works, all swear that your own gardens will sparkle as well. 
Sit for a spell, perhaps underneath a sconce, just be sure to grab their land line or later this fall attend one of their art shows.  No doubt you'll be comforted in a furry of bliss as spectacular as a lunar eclipse! 

You just never know what unusual elements of nature 
exist behind these good fences.
They're ready to present themselves 
upon your accidental discovery.
Be brave. Be adventurous. 

"The important thing is not to stop questioning -

"Curiosity has its own reason for existing." 
Albert Einstein

I don't know about you, but for me after seeing all these treasures I want to go and home create a few artsy things myself.

So far, autumn's astonishing gifts of yellow, browns, orange and reds have yet to arrive.  

It's quite fair I'd say that autumn is slow to appear here in Minnesota, since our spring lived far beyond its normal schedule.

"The power to question is the basis of all human progress." 
- Indira Gandhi

"Whenever you take a step forward, you are bound to disturb something." - Indira Gandhi

Just keep moving ahead.

The simplest of things often present themselves just for your enjoyment.  Take time to notice things.

Welcome to the Fairy Wing Forest Laundry.
It goes without saying right?

Not far from the sudsy corners of the laundry sits this charming house.

Not sure who lives inside this magical fairy house, but if you listen very closely you will hear music playing.

All good things must come to an end.  Unless of course I've twisted your arm into attending one of their last days at the Minnesota Renaissance Fair of 2015.  You still have three glorious days to venture out there this year. 

Of course-
Even Fairies need their own private places.

The greatest chance for desirable adventures are waiting around every corner.  Meet them head on.  Enjoy your day and everything you do.

Amazing. I know I would love this place.

Jeanie said...

This is enchanting -- as a fairy wing forest should be! I have these fantasies that someday when there's a baby KevMo, I'll create a fairy forest up north for her (because a her would just love the fairy forest all the more!). Who knows what will come to pass... but my mind is swarming with ideas!

I love all the whimsical little fairy homes! I'd like to put a few in my garden, but don't know where I'd find such things here in Adelaide.

What a delightful little forest - and perfect glimpse of it that you have offered us! Very creative use of my word prompt - I'd not thought of using some of the words with the connotations that you did! Well done!
