The Fairies Have Landed

It's not often I post two days in a row, but I just had to share this.



You know how we're always looking for treasures? Well, nature has landed a fabulous gift on our doorstep!



It's a real-life fairy toadstool!!!!!



In my all of my 30-something years, I've never seen a real one, have you?



It's very beautiful.



I'm tempted to host a fairy tea party underneath it .......

  3. I know!!! I couldn't believe it either. But it's 100% real and I think it's grown since I took these first photos. I'll keep you posted ...

  5. That is the most amazing thing! You def. have to host a fairy party - I just watched the Enid Blyton movie and it looks like something I would imagine she would write about...Fantastic

  6. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm pretty sure they are toxic. Don't let the kids play with them! We have them in our yard too and it always breaks my heart to have to pull them out and dispose of them :-(

  9. Thanks everybody, especially for the advice about it being poisonous. I'm glad I held out on that tea party ... It's been quite a strange thing to watch. My husband is convinced we've been cursed by an old lady down the street. The mushroom had morphed into a wide-brimmed orange-looking toadstool just yesterday and then today when I went to get Em from school it had disappeared. Definitely straight out of an Enid Blyton book Gill, I'm on the lookout for a Wishing Chair and/or a Faraway Tree ....

  10. If you find a Faraway Tree let me know....I could do with a visit to the Land of Take What You Want....hee hee. (I need a new laptop!)

    What a shame they are toxic - but good thing to know, especially when children are involved.

    You could make a little story about a tea party with the photos perhaps instead?!

  11. The story is a great idea Gill, thanks.

    I will keep an eye out for the Land of Take What You Want, but I was thinking, surely in the 21st century, there would be Techno Land where the people have ipads for faces and laptops grow on bushes .... I'll keep my eye out for that one too.
