|A carpet of bluebells|
|Tree patterns in the Spring sunshine|
The scent of bluebells and wild garlic conjure up an ancient place of magic and mystery.
And there is always the possibility of a fairy passing by....
"And as the seasons come and go, here's something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around - in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing."
