I love this

For #7, add some scent to the water and it refreshes the air too. We used rose water cause our monsters didn’t like to smell like flowers.

I often stand in awe of the ingenuity of good parents. I salute you all.

The hammock thing seems dangerous but these people were destined to be engineers

Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it. They are soooooo beautiful!

fairy rings are usually caused by decaying organic matter, generally a tree stump. many types of fungi have symbiotic relationships with tree roots and mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of such fungus. So if a huge old tree was cut down, you’ll often find fairy rings. they can last for years and years as the earth  reabsorbs all the nutrients left behind by the beautiful tree.

sorry, didn’t mean to crush dreams - but i have a degree in horticulture and i was really excited when i first learned this.

maybe fairies and fungi are joining together to mourn the loss of the tree

xo

NO BUT FINDING OUT ABOUT WHY FAIRY RINGS EXIST IS ALSO REALLY COOL.

From a writer’s perspective, it’s even more interesting to find out why they exist on a horticultural level, because it opens up a whole realm of fictional possibilities. Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.

For example, doesn’t that just essentially make this a tree grave? And if folklore has taught us anything, it’s that “fairies” and other spirits usually occupy trees, or have them as their life force. And that’s to say nothing of the folklore of trees being spirits in and of themselves, or kitsunes that live in tree hollows, or dryads, etc., etc.. So, if it’s disrespectful or feels like a slight to step on human graves, wouldn’t that logic transfer to stepping inside the Fairy Circle, AKA, the tree’s grave? It’s essentially giving more fuel to the story, not detracting from it, in my humble opinion!

Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.

Nothing to add, I’m just reblogging it because it’s interesting.

What is Fairy Faith?

thepaganstudygrouppage:

Fairy Faith are folkloric traditions and practices that interact with an enchanted class of creatures that live in a realm connected to ours with some cross over between.

People of most any religious or even an areligious belief system can practice fairy faith.

A partial list of fairy faith tradtions and well known teachers and authors regarding:

  • Feri Witchcraft (Victor and Cora Anderson, T Thorn Coyle’s-early work) 
  • Pop Culture Fairy Faith (Brian Froud, Amy Brown …)
  • UnderWorld Faery Traditions (RJ Stewart and Orion Foxwood)
  • Heritage Witchcraft (Ari Devi and Grayson Magnus)
  • Cornish Pellars (Gemma Gary and Jackdaw)
  • Folklore based traditions (Kenny Klien, …)
  • Sabbatic Witchcraft (Daniel Schulke and Nigel Jackson’s early work)

So, what exactly does Fairy Faith involve?

To put it simply, it involves fairies. Some traditions focus solely on fairies, but others may only have fairies as a part of a greater number of beliefs and practices. 

An important note to make is that a Fairy Faith isn’t always in itself a religious practice. There are traditions that incorporate Fae into their magical practices or every day lives in a non-religious way. It may also be incorporated into other religious practices and beliefs as well.

Faith:

1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something.”this restores one’s faith in politicians”

2. strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

3. a system of religious belief.plural noun: faiths

“the Christian faith”

4. a strongly held belief or theory.

Fairy faiths and practices differ from specific tradition and individual/group. Some focus heavily on the teachings from historical folklore and books (such as The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries by W.Y. Evans-Wentz), while others focus on the personal experiences and teachings they learn from their interactions with the Fae. And others continue living traditions of Fairy Faith going back generations.
