I have really enjoyed looking at photos of Fairy Gardens on many of the blogs I read, and have bought and made a couple of things to make one of my own. But I thought I would show you a picture of the fairy ring that was in my yard last fall!
Wikipeia says that fairy rings are diseased grass where fungi spores live and create the rings. What a bunch of dummies! We all know that fairy rings are caused from fairies or pixies dancing in a circle at night.
In one of the "Still Meadow" books by Gladys Taber, they talk about going to hunt mushrooms that grow in fairy rings for they were edible. I'm not sure I would take a chance on eating the mushrooms in my yard, but I love that the fairies chose my yard to dance on!
Midnight, our cat, says it was definitely fairies that created the ring, because as you can see, she is very alert to what is going on, so of course I believe her!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!
