LAND OF FAE
Never grow bitter;
Where joy is wisdom,
And time an endless song.
Faeries are believed to be the guardians of nature,
and they tend to help those who share their mission.
Often mischievous, always compelling, faeries captivate the part
of us remaining young and open to the miraculous.

and that was the beginning of Faeries."

Rosemary...It is called the elf plant, and faelore states they are enchanted by the scent.
Thyme...This is their favorite! You may get a glimpse of your faeries playing delightfully amongst it.
Ferns...Grow them near the thyme beds with plenty of soft moss around and the faeries will make their beds in it!

Very lightly step around,
Tip-Toe as you pass,
Last night Faeries frolicked there
And they're sleeping somewhere near.
If you see a tiny faery
Lying fast asleep
Shut your eyes and run away,
Do not stay to peek!
Do not tell!
Or you'll break a faery spell.
Faeries dance in circles and when humans are lured inside,there is no escape!

Inside time is different. A minute may be a day or several.
