Do You Believe?


It's true,
what they say...

People who don't believe in fairies will never find them.


Here's your chance.
Look closely at the photo above.
Can you spot it?

Most of us will see this,
truly magical in every way,
Maple seeds ready to unfurl their soft green wings.




But,
for those who hold magic deep in their hearts,
who continue to light the spark
that turns the
Ordinary
 into the
Extraordinary


You will see
Maple Forest Fairies
rising from the forest floor,
wearing long, golden caps.

Where there's one,
there's many more.



Let's join them
as they laugh and dance and sing,
for they know
it's time
to celebrate
Spring!

  3. I do believe in fairies:) Wonderful shots of hope and excitement. I remember spring to be the signs of life from the little helicopters that escaped the rakes of fall. Very cool post:)

  5. Si je ne croyais pas aux fées, je ne peindrais peut-être pas...
    Au fond de nous elles font que la vie devient belle lorsqu'on nous ne nous y attendons pas...
    Merci pour la douceur et la beauté des mots qui accompagnent vos magnifiques photos.
    Gros bisous

  7. Hello Rosemary
    Great pictures you show of the small Sycamore seeds - know all about them .....

    I have a large maple in the garden - also called "the neighbors of terror" because of propeller (seeds) - you can see it here: http://hbt.finus.dk/ # post356. Wish you a nice day :) Hanne Bente

  10. Lovely words for very cute and emotional pictures!
    What a poet you are!
    Not only do they have wings but long hats too... it reminds me of Prof. Minerva McGonagall's hat in Harry Potter! LOL!
    Cheers Rosemary!

    1. Hi Meghana, this is the seed of a maple tree. They spin through the sky like the blades of a helicopter (so cute) and can travel quite far before they plant themselves in the ground :)
