...may day fairy

...fine day my dears!

a fairy was out in my garden today ...

in the beautiful sunshine,
on this first of May

i was hanging the first of spring
~ load o' laundry ~
on the line,
 when i spied her...

would you like to pull back the lace curtain 
and see her too??!

come and look...


seated oh-so-gracefully
under that white dogwood tree

is she not lovely?

(well of course i AM biased!)

her head is adorned with a lavender crown

the sweet smell of spring...

to catch a glimpse of her smiling is sheer delight!!

she wears a necklace of dogwood flowers...

it's as if
they have simply fallen out of the tree above
and are dancing around her ~
how utterly divine!!

and as fairies are whimsical creatures,
they adore simple joys
forgotten by adults

can you guess what she is doing??

why blowing
a wand of the "worlds best bubbles" of course!!

she doesn't agree...
and says that they are NOT the best bubbles!!

regardless ~

i was just enchanted
to watch this fairy in my garden,

blowing crappy iridescent bubbles:)

aahhhh yes,
there is nothing quite like the first of May

and to have such a light, happy heart,
what more,
 could one could ask for?!

well perhaps,
 one more load of beautiful laundry?!

happiest may day dear ones!!
