faerie gift

My tea party happened in such a whirlind of leaves and moonlight that it feels like it was all sooo long ago. The Autumn Woods gently faded away like a dream and now my little backyard is back to it's normal suburban self.



But those fairies still love to play tricks on me and sometimes if I look in just the right place I'll find a wee treasure they might have left behind. Today my raven Oliver spotted this unusual cage.



It was covered with gliterry moss, autumn berries and this beautiful butterfly. What was in it I wondered?



I tip toed closer and saw the tiniest fairy pumpkin! Surely the fairies left this gift after dancing the night away at my tea party. Oliver and I quickly plucked it from the tree and brought it inside where we can decide what to do with it.



Aren't the faeries just wonderful? Could they have truly left  this for me? A magical token to rekindle memories of an enchanted night under a Halloween moon.
