While feeding the birds today,
I noticed some tiny red lines
in the bark of our maple tree:
I went to look a little closer:
Berries stuck in the cracks of the tree bark,
I decided to walk around and check out the rest of the tree:
What's that white stuff up in the crook?
Toadstools way up in a tree?
That could only mean one thing:
Yes, a new fairy village!
It hadn't occurred to me before discovering this,
but fairies would obviously need to seek
higher ground before snow started accumulating.
Looks like they're stocking up
on berry food, too.
Gee, you just never know
what you'll find in your own backyard.
