Never step inside a fairy ring…

What better to share on May Day than a picture of a genuine Fairy Ring? This one can be found in the Enchanted Garden at the Winterthur Museum. When unsuspecting children do step inside, they are sprayed with a very fine mist, the work, I’m sure of some mischievous sprites. It occasions much wonderment and staring at one’s legs:

  8. Aha! I grew up in the land of fairy rings!
    The one in this photo is so much more interesting than the random circular patches of green I experienced as a child.
    But they’re all magical :)

  9. I love fairy rings. We have one in our garden and noted that it has grown larger this year. We wait, every autumn, for the mushrooms to sprout. Brings me back to my days as a little girl, growing up in a Convent :-)

  10. Too lovely! And I was just wondering what to do with a spare patch in the corner of my yard. Now my brain can get to work on how to recreate this slice of magic.
