Jasmyn often dreamed of flying. One night, she flew on the back of a bird to a new land. The bird grew tired even though Jasmyn was light as a feather. She landed in a ring of stones, and her bird friend tucked its head under its wing and slept.
Jasmyn could hear a stream, but she could not see it. She followed the musical sound, and found the stream through a bank of yellow irises. Jasmyn wandered for a time, smelling flowers and rolling down the hills, without getting any green stains on her dress, for this was an enchanted place.
She sat, braiding gerber daisies into a crown, when she chanced to see a frog hopping madly down over the top of the hill. It skirted the stone circle and plunged down toward the stream. So intent was the frog on rushing down the hill, he didn’t see Jasmyn until too late, and she scooped him right up.
Thank you to Julianne Victoria at Through the Peacock’s Eyes for making one of my dreams come true today, an award for friendly fairy tales. She is an inspiring person with great things to say about yoga, tarot, poetry, philosophy and a whole lot more. I hope you will be able to visit her website. I hear she is writing fairy tales, too, and I can’t wait to see them.
Having thanked Julianne Victoria, I now have to tell you 7 unknown things about myself and then nominate 10 other lucky bloggers (with notices and links going out to them).
A story is coming soon(1)! In the meantime, I’ve planted sage, parsley, thyme, tomatoes, cucumbers, meadow sage and peonies today(2). One of the tomato varieties is a zebra stripe. A new adventure in cuisine for us(3).
I also took a long walk(4), thinking of flowers, magic, sunshine and friendship(5). Oh, and sugar, since I stopped at Starbucks (6). 🙂 Here are some things I saw on my way (7):
Thanks for coming on my journey with me. I hope to meet you at my site again soon!
Other lovely bloggers I hereby nominate (in no particular order):
I hope you like them as much as I do!
