Hamilton is at its best ever when our grandchildren come to stay – all the way from Portland, Oregon in the USA. As Iggy says “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood” so we had Jethro of JG Landcare Services create a fairy ring in a hidden spot in our garden and planned a fairy feast. I think the grownups had every bit as much fun as the kids. Kiwicommunicator says “It’s never too late to eat fairy bread!”
The best magic of all was playing with the fairy and the pixie. Kiwicommunicator is teaching Ana a song passed down through the generations:
“The fairies come in the night time
When everything else is still.
They slide down a ladder of moonbeams
Onto my window sill.
I lie very quiet and watch them
For fear of disturbing their play.
They sprinkle stardust on my eyelids
Then they fly away.”
