My full time job (besides blogging) has me on the road quite a bit these days, regularly buzzing around eight different counties here in Arkansas. I am so very blessed to live in a beautiful area. When something catches my eye, I snap a picture with my phone.
If this type of post is something you enjoy, there are more on My Ozarks page of my blog!
I was driving along Highway 12 between Rogers and Eureka Springs, when I receive an email that needs a quick response. Pulling into the parking lot of some storage unit facility, my co-worker is sent the answer she needs. Something white on the ground catches my eye.
How lovely! Out comes my camera! I sent the photos to my sister and she called them a Fairy Ring. We've had a very rainy August here in Arkansas and these pretty mushrooms can be found just about everywhere. A quick internet search led me to all kinds of folklore and whether or not it is safe to step inside the ring.
Maybe the fairies flew away while I was typing that email. ;-)
I love fairy rings! For quite a few years when my son was a little boy we had one come up in our front yard...a little bigger each year. Until it outgrew the space & the circle was broken. I was sad when it didn't reappear. We always looked for the fairies though we never could quite catch them.ReplyDelete
What a nice surprise to see a ring of mushrooms like that! Magical!ReplyDelete
How lovely. I remember seeing something similar when I was a girl. My dad took me walking in the forest and we saw a "fairy ring", he convinced me it was where the fairies lived and I was mesmerised. :)ReplyDelete
