Hello, Friends, here in America we are celebrating
Independence Day on July 4th.
I have planted some red, white and blue
flowers in honor of this patriotic day.
A few little flags to commemorate the holiday.
A happy little corner.
The red petunias are sulking due to
a cool, wet spell, but these will be
blooming soon, among the white petunias,
sweet alyssum, and blue lobelia.
The fairies have set up housekeeping
here on the old baker's rack.
I had to put up a little sign to keep visitors
As soon as I planted this vintage pan full of alpines,
they moved right in!
Shhhhhh! We can see our first Winged Friend....
This is a 'Blue-Winged Orb Gatherer' Fairy,
indigenous to the Pacific Northwest :)
She has collected quite a few.....
Her wheelbarrow is almost full.
She has a helper......
Our second Winged Friend!
We must be very quiet - I think she sees us.
A third Winged Friend, splashes in the bird-bath.
Fairies capture baby birds
to train as 'watchers'.
This one seems to have spied us!
I leave the lid off the green jar at night
so the fairies can add their daily harvest.
I know where to find all those marbles
I have lost :)
I was tending to the flowers above,
when I found this......
A fairy bed!
It seems to be crafted from half of a little pod
to form a hammock.
I've heard that fairies like to sleep under toadstools....
The fairies have put up their own little bird feeder, too.
Two more Winged Friends stop by for a treat.
These are 'Golden-Flecked Pearl Catchers'.
Sugar pearls attract these little beauties.
A bell jar keeps a rare blue-swirled orb.
Thank you for stopping by, Dear Friends!
Today I am joining :
Five on Friday
Won't you join the fun?
