Spring is here at last !

At long last.... SPRING !!! Time to begin to think of the Faerie worlds of flowers, moss and magic ! Around here spring has come on so fast and full. Seems like just a few days ago I was walking in the deep quiet snowy woods....now all the snow is gone and the fields and forests are roaring with life !

I love working with Pussywillows. In my fields there are several different varieties.... some yellowish, some grey and even one with tiny pink flowers that are just so enchanting. This creation started with a strong mossy base....Faeries love a good dancing surface and this moss tussock looked perfect. The garden seemed like an ideal setting to create this little dancing pavilion. The breezes are warming now and the ponds out back are humming with frog songs of all descriptions... I know the delicate Faeries of summer are returning just as the migrating birds are winging northwards now to reclaim their summer nesting grounds. I hope I can keep up the creative flow and dance with them all !
