“Few humans see fairies or hear their music, but many find fairy rings of dark grass, scattered with toadstools, left by their dancing feet.”
~ Judy Allen
We’ve had a furious amount of rain here at the farm these past few weeks. Everything is damp and waterlogged, but green green green!
On my morning walk I marvelled at the fungi forest in our paddocks. Mushrooms of every shape and size.
The one in the picture above is the size of a dinner plate.
And these tiny delicate ones are covering the trunk of the fallen coral tree like lace.
Soon enough they’ll all be gone, so I am enjoying their magic while I can.
How about you? Can you slow down a little today, or over the weekend, and take yourself for a walk in nature? Who knows what you might find, what inspiration could come to you, or what you might learn about yourself and your feelings.
I can highly recommend walking. After our retreat I rushed straight into a busy week of medical appointments in the city and the stress of supporting family members. It was so good to come home yesterday and decompress by spending some quiet time in nature. Walking helped me come back to centre, release my stress and reprioritise what truly matters so that I don’t get caught up in external dramas. Maybe you will find that kind of peace too, if you walk long enough. If long walking’s impossible a short gentle stroll or even sitting outside in nature with a quiet and watchful eye can be enough.
Biggest hugs and love, Nicole ❤ xx
A miniature city of mushrooms
There’s almost nowhere to walk – with mushrooms everywhere under my feet
Perfect umbrellas for fairies!
Lace-like and delicate. For fairy dresses perhaps?
