Faeries in The Abandoned - Weekend Reflections


Sissy and I went for a walk in the Forest near The Abandoned.  We hiked down the side of the fern-clad canyon to Deer Valley, a magical place from our childhood.  The deer trails were there--still used by generations of deer.  There was a sort of wonder all around us--a soft quiet to the air as though past and present had converged.  I was sure if we waited long enough, we would see something amazing.

And we did--if you look closely--just in front of the old beaver dam--you can see a faery face reflection in the water, peeking over the "Y" of the tree.

For more wonderful reflections from around the world, be sure to visit James at Weekend Reflections.

Lovely story to go with this enchanted image, Beth. I love creeks like this that smell of the jungle floor with their squelch, their moss and their sheer abandon. As though nature is reclaiming her own.
