Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the photo series: Faerie Homes. I also recently published a blog on Elf Homes …

As can be seen from the photos below, faeries love flowers.

Like the elves, faeries like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both faeries and elves like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Here is more about faeries and elves, but not to do with today’s photos …

Faeries and elves love the creatures of the forest … deer and foxes, skunks and badgers and porcupines, chipmunks and squirrels, for instance. Also, the less assuming creatures of the forest, such as pack rats and mice, and bats, toads and frogs.

Faeries, in particular, love birds of all sorts. Also, and especially, they love bears, as bears are good to ride upon, and fun to tickle on the ears. You are more likely to find elves near a sleeping bear, unless they feel especially mischievous (which, when I come to think of it, is quite frequently the case).

As is well known by those who delight in the company of nature spirits, both faeries and elves like damselflies and dragonflies. Catching a glimpse of the flittering wings of these latter beings often signifies the nearby presence of elves or faeries.

Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 6 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the fourth of four elf photo collections in a photo series: Elf Homes. The other three elf photo collections, which appear in other blogs, are: Elf Energy, Singles Collection; Elf Energy, Diptych Collection; and Elf Energy: Triptych Collection …

I have also published a blog on Faerie Homes …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dT3 ..

As can be seen from the photos below, elves like trees and forests, forest glades, the brooks that meander through meadows and woodland, and the little ponds that the brooks make there. Mostly, elves leave flowers to the faeries, but they love the flowers of trees, and they like plants whose flowers are quite small or else green, and ferns, which have no flowers.

Like the faeries, elves like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both elves and faeries like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Here is more about elves and fairies, but not to do with today’s photos …

Like the faeries, elves love the creatures of the forest … deer and foxes, skunks and badgers and porcupines, chipmunks and squirrels, for instance. Also, the less assuming creatures of the forest, such as pack rats and mice, and bats, toads and frogs.

Faeries, in particular, love birds of all sorts. Also, and especially, they love bears, as bears are good to ride upon, and fun to tickle on the ears. You are more likely to find elves near a sleeping bear, unless they feel especially mischievous (which, when I come to think of it, is quite frequently the case).

As is well known by those who delight in the company of nature spirits, both faeries and elves like damselflies and dragonflies. Catching a glimpse of the flittering wings of these latter beings often signifies the nearby presence of elves or faeries.
