Picking the forums mind.

I have a fairy ring, it's been in the same spot for at least 4 years that I know of.

For those who are not familar with fairy rings, here's an interesting site.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_ring

I would like to do something interesting with the fairy ring. Of course I wouldn't want to disturb the fairies that dance there, but maybe something leading up to it, like rest stops, that kind of thing, lol. There is a tree stump about 10 feet tall next to it that I put bird houses on, maybe a fairy house at the base of it? If so, how would you go about building it?

I know it's silly, but I won't step into the fairy ring. We really do need a garden lore forum on this site, I find that kind of stuff so interesting. But since I wasn't able to find one, I decided to ask here.

Still I kind of got it in my mind to bring more attention to my fairy ring, I think it would be fun.

Since I work nights, I might even go out one night before work and see if I can see fairies dancing.

Some believe that the ancient standing stones were erected to mark enchanted sites, so they could be avoided... Maybe a few small standing stones on the perimeter?

Have you checked out the Inspiration Album "Fairy n Gnome Homes" ...here's the link (if you haven't). Lots of fairies dance at several GJers' gardens! Jeanne S.

Even though I don't have any great ideas about what you should do, I really like the idea....I don't think I knew about fairy rings....I'm going to have to do a little research...sounds very interesting!
