  2. O how I love this! Never seen anything like it! Thank you so much for sharing. In every garden, there's a little fairy world, if only you want to see it.

  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:)

  4. So sweet -- you can hear that tinkling laughter that's carried on the breeze :)

  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
