Our new yard in Boulder has fairy flowers everywhere – even under the deck!

“When the first baby laughed for the first time,
the laugh broke into a thousand pieces
and they all went skipping about,
and that was the beginning of fairies.
And now when every new baby is born
its first laugh becomes a fairy.
So there ought to be one fairy
for every boy or girl.”
~James Barrie, Peter Pan
“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully,
he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.”
~George Washington Carver
“I drank the silence of God from a spring in the woods.”
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping
than you can understand.
~William Butler Yeats, “The Stolen Child”
“Earth laughs in flowers.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You will find something more in woods than in books.
Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.”
