Out in the meadow today, we found an actual fairy ring.
It was huge, composed of about eight large mushrooms just like the ones we found last year that were already picked. They were spread out in a circle about ten feet around. Just like this.
Hmm.. I wonder what would have happened to a group of 12 parents and tots if we had stepped inside that fairy ring? Find out more here.
I expected to see a little winged nymph sitting atop one of those toadstools. It felt so magical to me as we danced around showing our little ones the mushrooms. I hope to see more fairy rings this summer, perfect for fairy tales and lore.
