Time to see what is on the other side of the door to the secret Faerie Garden !!
As I peered over the wall now I could see all the amazing colours and secret delights that were just on the other side of the door! The door was still open a crack and the golden light from outside poured through the diamond shaped window into the garden.
A delicate spiral stone path led down from the door and up to a gorgeous tuffet of pale green moss. The flowers were a riot of colour and texture! I could see three tiny Faerie sized seating areas arranged in a circle around the moss. The seats were Milkweed pods with tiny cushions of yellow flowers places inside each one. And there was even a Milkweed pod sleeping nook high above the garden. It's hard to see from this angle, so here is a better view.
Now you can see all of the seats and the hanging sleeping nook. It was easy to imagine a group of faeries getting together for a cup of tea in their secret garden after putting their tiny Faerie babies up in the pod for a nap. :-)

So much is happening now. Summer is coming to a close. The cricket song is almost too loud in the warm evening air. The past few days we've had unusually hot and steamy weather. I've been able to be working in the cool forests and have some more delights to share with you soon. Thanks to a helpful hint from a friend, I've found a new glen full of enchanting pools and tiny waterfalls. So much fun to work around and with but the sun is incredibly fleeting now. While working up in the mountains is delightful, the window of good, useable light for getting good photos is getting smaller and shorter now. I've even seen some red and orange leaves. Autumn will be here before we know it. So the push is on now to get out there and create as much as I can while it is still warm and somewhat green. All this creative work will hopefully be worth the wait! Stay tuned!!
