On a gloriously sunny Saturday morning recently a fine group of younger folks wandered up to our camp in the forest, collecting fairy dew-drop threads en route to make bracelets with from the magical trees of the woods!
Then they broke out into the darker realms of the trees to find their own stirring sticks of note, concentration on weird shapes, gnarled shapes, funny shapes & so on! After some time spent seeking these out and naming them, they ventured off once more to secure the woodland ‘ingredients’ required for their potion brewing! Having amassed the requisite contents, various special fairy waters were added also and after a vigorous stir, they were ready to set about casting their spells. A hot chocolate, oh yes, they all wanted a hot brew on this already hot morning! Then it was off to collect forest floor items with which to build fairy shelters, towers, Princess Towers, castles, hovels, fairy tree doors and loads more! in which to temporarily ‘house’ their ‘just’ found ‘frozen-in-time’ fairy figures. Phew after an hour it was definitely time for some party foodstuffs, laughing and chatting around the open camp fire. Toasting marshmallows followed on and then their voices grew softer as they made their jolly way back through the maiden forest trees. See you all again soon folks!
