Tread Gently Now, There May Be A Fairy Afoot.....


I came across this amazing fairy art by David Delamare. Isn't he such a talented illustrationist? I popped in a few pictures for you to enjoy and a little "fairy lore". Enjoy....

How do you attract faery folk to your garden or home?

There are several ways to attract the wee folk to your home. First you need to decide what type of faery you hope to attract. If you hope to attract flower and garden faeries you need to have some of their favorite plants around. Some of these are: Foxgloves, Fairy like to make their clothing from them. Ferns, these make nice soft beds for the little guys. Apple and or Oak trees, Fae often inhabit these trees. The oak is held sacred by many of them. Tulips, the faery like to use the tulip bloom to put their babies to bed. Rosemary, heartsease, and forget-me-nots are some others. While there are many others that fairy like these are some of their favorites. You can also build a little faery house from twigs, stones, crystals or other items found in nature. Put a crystal on the house to attract the faery to it. Place it in your garden, and soon a faery may make it home. Faery are attracted to bright and beautiful things. Oh and very important, if you want to keep the wee folk around, keep the cat out of the garden!


And Yes, they even appear in winter? Obviously it is majic that keeps them "toasty warm"!


Oh, and Yes, they can FLY TO THE MOON (and back, of course!) Such talented sprites!

One of their many talents is to tell stories! Oh, how they love to tell the stories of their past. No One knows for sure how long they live, but the stories are passed from generation to generation!


You might get lucky, and actually see a "little fairy". They are very fast, and just once in a while, when the conditions are right, and of course, if they want you to see them, it happens! It is magical! I feel sure I have seen one or two in my lifetime!


And let's not forget, that they take care of all of those little critters of the forest. Living happily among the trees!

So when you think you see a glint, or a wisp, or a whirl, you might have just seen a wee fairy!

  1. Oh Kitty this is such an enchanted post, I enjoyed it from beginning to end (which in that case always comes too soon!). Ok I'm off now to make a little fairy nest and to plant some foxgloves, these are the only things missing in my garden, so when I see a fairy one of these days I will surely let you know. Thanks for inspiration, have a nice day!
