We spent most of the day inside making treats for the fairies and watching the dark, dark clouds dance a little dance overhead. Somehow Summer preparations in 60° weather don't feel quite right. We did make some sweet and tasty cookies and cakes though and, this time around, Naiya even delighted in fashioning that dough into a few fruity pies!
She set them out in the garden just so.
And with so many to offer, placed a few in their covered gazebo.
She made a couple of Ojo de Dios as a gift for the Queen.
And cried when Pippin sampled her beautiful display.
I told her I thought the fairies would likely not mind sharing with all the good living things who venture into our back yard so we went inside to tidy...
And then the sky opened up and the rain began to fall.
Such is Mother Nature with her own sort of magic.
We covered the treats tables with "skylight umbrellas" and all was well. We shall see what tomorrow brings...
