Just in case you didn’t get to see them at the fairy gathering, the houses made by the Girl Scouts will remain on exhibit in the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens until Monday, May 28th.
Come see and be enchanted. These delight little dwellings are sure to charm. And it’s not just houses, our fairy-in-residence artist, Jess Clauser, has created a neighborhood with branches, slices of logs, mushrooms and more. The area has cultivated mini-landscapes with tiny bridges, terra cotta pots and lounge chairs. It looks like fairies live there.
And, at least one young visitor at the fairy gathering over the weekend, said he saw one in one of the houses.
If you haven’t come to see the fairy garden, please do. It is located at the end of the pathway on the northern edge of the community gardens where the wide path ends and the field begins.
According to legend, fairies have the power to bring happiness. Considering all the smiles I’ve seen on the faces of adults and children as they explore what is in this little village, the legend is true.
