The Castle of the Tree Nymph

home of a tree nymphOnce upon a time present time myths and lore spoke speak about fairies and nymphs that live in trees. 

For ages past (and even right now) there are legends and stories about the fairy folk.  Fairies are said to be super natural beings with certain powers that are related to the earth,  water, air and fire.

Some tree nymphs settled in the woods to watch over and protect the trees, plants and wild life, while other fairies make their homes in the different elements.

Woods for instance are torn down without regard to who is living there.  The wild life rush before the bulldozers’ destruction to find new homes.  Somehow our furry friends manage to forgive us.

This past Saturday, I found evidence of tree nymphs in an area that used to be woods!

I was fortunate to find this magical nymph castle when visiting a friend.  I walked right by it several times before I realized that tree fairies have also  found new homes.  Their elegant residences are  in plain sight but easily unnoticed. 

Fear not believers of lore, the lovely tree fairies are still hard at work in present time weaving their magic and watching over us.

Moral of the tale:
Magic really does exist and you can find it everywhere, everyday.
