The Adornment Jigsaw
Legend has it that Fairy Rings are worn areas in the grass made by fairies dancing. It is believed they are where fairies come to dance and celebrate, and perform many of the rituals of their own magic. Here in this painting you can see one of those rituals taking place. In the milky twilight, a flutter of fairies are adorning the sad sight of a fallen tree with garlands of ivy. Each garland is wound beautifully around the branches and trunk by the fairies as they dance, like winding green leafy ribbons around a maypole. I know ivy is not popular with many but I have always thought it looks so pretty wrapped around a tree. The next time you see something covered in ivy, check to see if there is a fairy ring near by. You can be sure fairy magic has been at work, breathing life into the neglected and long forgotten things around us.
