Elizabeth has been reading this library book for the last several nights in a row. She's very intrigued by the serious, non-fiction nature of the flower listings with the meanings behind each flower and the folklore and remedies that accompanies each entry. Last evening when we decided to take a friend and frolic in a local park, she was very intent on studying the flowers and looking for possible signs of fairy friends.
Just a few of the varieties we saw:
They hunted for fairies,
gathered fallen buds,
and hunted some more,
even in flowering trees.
Finn preferred to hang out in the gazebo.
No fairies were found that day, but Elizabeth and her friend each came home with a nice assortment of fallen buds which they were happy to settle for. Another day perhaps...
