Do you believe in fairies?
Eye Witnesses report honest-to-goodness encounters with these winged creatures on May 1 at Lakewold Gardens where tiny fairies, wearing gossamer wings in shades of blue, green, pink and purple, flitted around this past weekend at the Garden’s annual Mayfest.
Sunday seemed like a “truly magical” outing for nine-year-old Sasha. The young, yellow-winged girl, accompanied by her mother, Dhyana Towell, enjoyed meandering the blooming gardens, sprinkling sparkly “fairy dust.”
Sasha, sporting a decorative Butterfly design on her face, conducted an impromptu tour of the beribboned Fairy House Walk, pointing out a few really small fairy homes. More than 30 house builders had crafted these miniature rustic woodland dwellings, secreted in nooks and crannies along the pathways.
With Blue Cloud Celtic’s festive music floating over the grounds, along with an assortment of Ikebana floral arrangements and historic photos displayed inside the Wagner House, the weekend visit to Lakewold was a super way to celebrate May Day 2016.
Although anytime of year is worth touring this local treasure, the premiere time to see this 10-acre lakeside retreat, when the showy rhododendrons are at their peak, is right now.
Lakewold is located at 12317 Gravelly Lake Dr., S. W.
