Do you believe in Fairies?
At the moment they’re everywhere, twisting and turning in the breeze, thousands of them.
I always called them fairies, and would handle them gently as if they were made of the finest glass. As kids, we used to ‘tell the time’ with these clusters of Nature’s diamonds, however many puffs it took to clear them from the stalk was the ‘o’clock.’
Now the wind is doing that and blowing them from and in all directions. They are sweeping in under the net curtain at the door and settling on the carpet, the dog’s dinner and in her water bowl. Some seem to be gliding in on petal chariots from the multitude of flowers in gardens flanking the pavements .
I have hoovered twice, and continually picking them up by the dozen every time I go into the kitchen. Some are trapped in cobwebs, others resting on lawns and hedges.
Now older I understand their purpose, awaiting their moment to impregnate the soil with their seed where they’re not wanted. Hubby is going nuts having spent hours digging them out of our front and back lawns this year.
Regardless though, they will always be fairies to me, and nothing could emphasise my belief more than the 2009 movie Avatar.
You know the bit I mean.
