I noticed a couple of mushrooms in our lawn yesterday that looked just about ready to strut their stuff. But I never expected that by this morning they would form a fairy ring–a nice, tidy arc of white mushrooms on the grass. And for many species the arc is completed into a full circle.
We get our share of mushrooms, great and small, but this is the first time we’ve ever had a fairy ring. The world’s folklore is chock-full of fairy rings. Most of the stories have to do with people foolishly or carelessly venturing into the ring and getting trapped there–because you know how tricky fairies are!
If I dared you, how many of you out there would step inside the fairy ring?
Abombalbap saw somebody do that and instantly disappear, right before his eyes.
