This is what I found in the garden yesterday when some little friends came for a play. When questioned I was told they are Fairy Traps. The mushrooms are held up by sticks. Underneath the mushrooms are bits of tortilla chips. These are to lure the fairies in, and then the fairies will " bump against the sticks, knock down the mushrooms, and be trapped underneath".
Then Julia, aged four, skipping around near by, pipes up and says: "And we'll have pet fairies then and I'll have a baby one".
Oh, such magic and innocence!
