Friday was Midsummer's Night
The night when fairies come out to play . . .
And at Linderhof
We have a fairy house
in a fairy garden
And . . . last Friday . . .
We found fairies in the gardens!
Blowing fairy dust
Watching her reflection in a small pond
with her turtle friend . . .
Reading a book in a quiet nook
And holding a leaf so a small bird can have a drink
And a fairy we found amongst the thyme
Who decided to come in for tea
Tea treats of lemon balm cookies
Fairies love lemon balm --
almost as much as thyme.
A proper tea for Midsummer's Night
And our corgi, Dolly, is a shameless beggar
For she has to have strength for on this night
She was hitched to the fairy queen's coach
You can see the harness marks on her back
All corgis have them
The calendar says summer
And it's finally gotten hot
And I'm afraid that the rain is gone until September
But, oh, what lush plants we have
for our cool wet spring encouraged growth.
