As I wandered through my garden the other day,
getting ready to pick pumpkins, I noticed the
rapid flutter of tiny wings.
Sure enough, fairies were flitting around enjoying
This was not my regular crop of garden fairies, oh no,
this was a new group, a little heartier.
Yes, the Fall Fairies had moved in and taken over
They must have come with the changing of the leaves
for they are all arrayed in autumn colors.
So precious with their gossamer wings.
They too were carrying a bounty of Fall harvest.
This little guy was enjoying my cherry tomatoes.
What a cute little fairy trying to squeeze into
Cinderella's carriage. Careful now, you are going
to drop everything.
There were not as many as the Summer Fairies, but
they were oh so beautiful all dressed in their Fall finery.
They helped gather the Jack-be-Littles and then we
set the table for you.
Every garden has fairies. As you harvest your garden
invite yours in!
May your Fall Harvest be bountiful!
In keeping with Red Couch Recipe's Thanksgiving Challenge,
I am grateful for gratitude. Years ago I watched
an Oprah Winfrey show where she talked about
keeping a gratitude journal. Our children were
too young to be writing things down but we started
saying 3 things we were each grateful for each
night. It has continued as a family tradition
and helps us count our many blessings daily.
