What an incredible Summer Solstice we are having here at Meadow Sweet Grove! Bright, beautiful sun, strong warm breezes - perfect for drying laundry - and . . . the magical appearance of a fairy ring in the garden! This is a really grand compliment as fairy rings (rings of mushrooms) only appear in places that the fairies themselves have chosen as a desirable place for their evening revels and dancing. In fact, the little toadstools are evidence that the merriment has already begun! For wherever the fairies dance, typically in a circle holding hands, the mushrooms appear.
The fairy ring marks a special, distinct space from the human world. It is often seen as a gateway to fairyland or another dimension. We can't usually see what (or who) is inside the fairy circle ... from the outside. And if a fey beckons us to join the dance - do we dare go in?
