“There’s a fairy at the bottom of my garden,
she flits in and out of my flowers.
I can sit on the step here
and watch her.
She stays there for hours and hours.
Her wings are so golden and flimsy.
Her little body a few inches in size.
Her heart is her biggest attraction
and that isn’t any surprise.
For the fairy at the bottom of my garden
spends her day saving the bees.
For they keep on taking the pollen,
but dropping it each time they sneeze.
I bet you didn’t know that the buzzers
had allergies from pollen. Sad, eh?
The sound that you thought was just buzzing,
are bees that are sneezing away!
Now this fairy works hard as she gathers
the droplets of sweet pollen that fall.
Diving and swooping and gathering up,
and rolling it into a ball.
She sings an enchanting little melody
that sounds like a gentle wind chime.
Oh how I would love to have a fairy
to pick up after me all the time.”
The Fairy At The Bottom Of My Garden by Janice M Pickett
I put this little fairy garden together as a birthday gift for my friend Suzanne’s daughter, Mati, before we went to Haiti. Her magic sparkles in nature, too! 😀
(PS- I found the fairy items on sale at Jo-Ann Fabric and the plant is a Norfolk Pine.)
