Grow a secret fairy ring in a hidden spot at the bottom of the yard. You never know, you might attract some fairies! A circle of ornamental grasses, along with delicate, sweet-smelling flowers, looks magical and makes a great place to play or have a picnic. Don't forget treats for the fairies!

Out of the baren woods a magical mushroom ring is formed ...soon the faeries will dance here, the trees will once again wear their gowns of leaves, the birds and animals will return and all will be right again with Nature.
