Nature Lessons: Fairy Houses

It’s July. Beautiful, impossible, magical July. The whole forest is humming with life. As I write,a hummingbird whizzes past me and I look up to see two blue dragon flies hunting above. Directly in front of me, right now, is a brave chipmunk barely supported by the thinnest huckleberry boughs.

It gives me lots of ideas for fairy houses! I have just a few in the garden containers and some hanging in the trees. It’s near midsummer and the fairies are preparing for the royal processions. I want to be ready for them! We even have the tent set up under the elder tree.
