  1. A blessed Holy Week to you, Cynthia. Lovely to read this again, and to remember being 7 again. 🙂

  2. The child in me loves the magic of fairies in gardens.

  3. Sweet memories Cynthia. My fairy flowers are finally springing from the earth. Despite snow showers this weekend (and this morning) I think Spring is coming! Can’t wait to see how all the flowers I planted last year look.

  4. I love to have the child in me reawakened from time to time. This was a wonderful way to do that this week. Thanks, Cynthia! Hugs, N ❤ 🙂

    Blessings,
    Theresa
