Fairies are playful nature spirits who perform many tasks for Mother Nature. They help seeds germinate, teach bumblebees to buzz, and add scent to flowers. They live in gardens, in ancient trees (especially willows and oaks), and in the deep mossy banks along streams. Their variety is endless, although the most well known are flower fairies, wishing fairies, and celestial fairies. Only those of us who honor all living things will ever have a chance to see the fairies. Sightings usually occur in the garden at dawn or at dusk. Thatís because the wee folk who live there love to frolic and play at those times, and in their merriment, often let their guard down. Young children often see fairies, but most adults have lost the ability (because they refuse to believe) and often mistake butterflies for fairies. Fairies like to ride on dragonflies and dance from petal to petal throughout the day. At night they tuck their heads and curl up beneath a leaf to sleep.
