Fairy Rings

Fairy Ring photo from ugaurbanag.com

Here is a really great example of a fairy ring that I found online from ugaurbanag.com. It is bigger than the one I saw, but I love that I was able to experience one in person!!!

Fairy Rings, to me, are quite magical. Many ideas spring to mind when I see them; I picture an enchanted council sitting among the tops of the mushroom fruit, or an elven-magical porthole and even a fairy dance procession. There is also some really interesting science behind them. I hope you too get the chance to see one on an adventure in the forest or a grassy meadow. Enjoy your research into these whimsical rings and look for them in Book Two of The Dragon Birthmark Series!
