Last week as I was driving to work, I couldn’t help but notice the “fairy rings” in nearby yards … large circles of mushrooms … popping up overnight!
Shakespeare wrote …
If you see a fairy ring
In a field of grass,
Very lightly step around,
Tiptoe as you pass;
Last night fairies frolicked there,
And they’re sleeping somewhere near.
I know science has explained the phenomena … takes all the fun out of imagination!
Pixies dancing, fairies sleeping … all in great fun! One of life’s joys is our imagination and the ability to create stories to explain what we see. If only that first grandma that explained the circular mushroom growth could hear the tales today!
