I am crossing my fingers for alot of fairies to visit my garden during this night.

What a beautiful post. You really should write a book. Can I preorder?????

did you wake to find fairies all drunken and sleepy around your yard ?

Oh what a party place they have there at The Cottage , I see.

The very idea of sipping jasmine and twirling a tiny paper parasol ( you gave me one once you know....) makes me smile.


I love the very idea of sweet flowers and dancing and surprises !

You definitely left ONE WONDERFUL surprise here.

Wish I was there. Your hard work shines - the yard looks VERY FINE !!!

Love, S.

And I did not know that about the primroses !

We used to always plant "Fairy Primrose" and regular primroses for Easter .... You mean we were keeping fairies away ?

Well....shoot ! I guess that explains it !


What a lovely story...I will take your advise...perhaps this year they will choose to stay a while.
Now I must go and polish my silver thimbles and bake some cakes...I have company coming.

I just know your cottage is a welcoming venue for the fae to party and enjoy life. I do believe your splendid displays of plant and flower...and offerings upon the wee table.... will bring them round for a May Day festival of all festivals.


So pretty, dear zUzU! I know the fairies will find delight in your cottage garden!


I have put a link to this post in my blog today ;-)


Oh my gosh, I haven't seen your blog before today. I loved it.
I so believe in fairies. I watched a documentary about fairies in Ireland, and loved it.
I haven't been blogging very long, but visit my blog sometime.


I am ready for the dance of the faieries! I wait for the tiny toes to leave impressions in the warm earth!I know that they have already kissed the daffodils and peonies!I think I heard the tinkling of their magical bells in the garden these past few nights! Gentle faieries come and play! hugs NG


What delightful folklore! :)
