We have two fairy doors at our house. One, is next to the back door leading out, and the other is in our back garden. I guess you can say that I have a special interest in fairy doors. There are fairies at the bottom of our garden, and they need to feel welcomed.
My niece went to Ann Arbor, Michigan this past weekend. Who knew that Ann Arbor was famous for their fairy doors? My kind niece sent a photo of one of the doors she and her DH happened upon on their walk. I love the little treasures and trinkets scattered around the door for the fairies.
Here is a link to some more photos of the Ann Arbor doors.
THERE ARE FAIRIES AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR GARDEN by Rose Fyleman
There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!It's not so very, very far away;You pass the gardener's shed and you just keep straight ahead -I do so hope they've really come to stay.There's a little wood, with moss in it and beetles,And a little stream that quietly runs through;You wouldn't think they'd dare to come merry-making there -Well, they do.
There are fairies at the bottom of our garden! They often have a dance on summer nights; The butterflies and bees make a lovely little breeze,And the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.Did you know that they could sit upon the moonbeams And pick a little star to make a far,And dance away up there in the middle of the air?Well, they can.
There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!You cannot think how beautiful they are;They all stand up and sing when the Fairy Queen and KingCome gently floating down upon their car.The King is very proud and very handsome;The Queen - now can you guess who that could be(She's a little girl all day, but at night she steals away)?Well - it's ME!
