Spike Milligan, fairies, pond cover cleaning and early lawn mowing...

This really is a quickie, as I must get some sleep!

Today at Pat's place in Berkhamsted I actually cut the grass - light touch of course this time of year - and found evidence of fairy activity. The latter was rather poignant for me as today was the 10th anniversary of Spike Milligan's passing on.

When Spike's kids were little there was a rather magical exchange of notes, placed in a little tin box, at the bottom of the garden. The fairies wrote to the children and the children wrote back. Spike always said he preferred the company of children over adults, basically because he always had a little child "inside"; he never grew up. Too sweet for words and as I brush away a little tear in the knowledge that I too have that little child just under the surface, here's some pictures of today's activities:

The grass always looks good when cut...
And finally, undeniable evidence that fairies exist!

It says, "for fairys. Queen sits on fowler (flower)"
The petals of said flower were definitely showing signs of disturbance, so there you have it, fairies do exist... A few of my mates already know that.

Don't know about you but I am chanting, "I do believe in fairies, I do, I do..."

Happy fairying about!
