Tuesday Treasures

 This week I have chosen these fairy prints which were a Christmas present from John a couple of years ago.
When I was a little girl I believed in fairies and really did see them in the garden.  My parents had a garden bed which ran along the front of the house under the bedroom windows.

 In winter they grew cinerarias
 and in summer they grew geraniums.
This is where the fairies lived.
Not only did I see them but I played with them and spoke to them too.  As they danced on my hand, I held them up to the light, near my face and their gossamer wings brushed my nose.  Common sense tells me this can't be true, but the memory is very very clear.  I treasure this memory.
 Do you have something you treasure to share with us as part of Tuesday Treasures.  It can be a thing, a person, a pet or a place. A hope, a dream a memory.  Anything really.  Please pop your details into Mr Linky and play along.

  1. I beleived in fairies too, and I read somewhere that a fairy can kiss its own elbow, and you can imagine how hard I tried to do this as I wanted so much to be a real life fairy. I love your story about the fairies living in the geraniums.

  10. Your faerie prints are beautiful Mel. and I can see them dancing amongst those gorgeous blossoms.
    They are amongst some of my most treasured memories of childhood too. My dream is still to have the money to replace my beloved copy of Peg Maltby's Fairy Stories which was so badly damaged in a house move.
    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous faeries Mel. I love them.

  12. I loved your story about the faerie in the garden. When my boys were small they had an african Tuilp Tree out side their bedroom window. it used to flower around chrismas time each year. I told the boys every time a flower dropped a faerie was flying off to see Santa, and let him know if they had been good or bad.

  17. I didn't know kids really believed their little imaginary friends were truly real. Hmm...who knows maybe they are - but it takes a child to see fairies. I was thinking I would like to plant some flowers that hummingbirds like. They are as close to fairies as I think I'll be able to get.
