What Gretta Saw

What you can't see but can hear, is usually what is the most frightening, and that is what little Gretta experienced. Her beady little eyes are not yet accustomed to seeing the faeries of Nowhere, but in the vicinity of the rumbling and grumbling under the rock, there stood three faeries, long-time residents of the wood. They too, heard the unusual sounds issuing from under the silky moss of summer, but rather, they stood in awe.



For under the cool blanket of green velvet covering teeming with life, there was the promise of the birth of a new faerie.



We all await with joyful anticipation!

Bebe told me she was sure she had seen a fairies in Nowhere.. Yes, now I know it's true! There can be no greater joy than a new life in Nowhere and beyond.
Beautiful illustrations Anita!

Bebe knows what exists in the forest; she is always foraging along the unbeaten path, that little world traveler!!!

I can hardly wait until Gretta figures out there are fairies so close to her.
I wonder if she will part with her little book under her bonnet?
Perhaps the three little fairy friends will know what the book is about?
I do believe the fairy book is about to come true if Gretta will part with it! It will be a tug on her heart for sure.
(Thank you Anita for the beauty you have surrounded us in with the birth of the wee baby...)

It's always beautiful when a new fairy is born. It means that there is still wonder and magic in the world, as when it was new -- when flowers laughed and trees danced in the moonlight, when animals talked to humans and not just to each other.

Bring on the fairies.

I believe that the new fairy is going to bring us the meaning of the word AHFLIDSLPRUS...this new little sprite has close connections with those animals who speak to humans....there is a lot coming down the path for Nowhere!
