A Wee Fairy Circle
Traveling the country roads this weekend I came upon a ring of mushrooms, commonly known in folklore as a, "Fairy Circle".
In Celtic Folklore a Fairy Circle is the place where the Fae come to dance. If a human were to enter the circle they may never return to their earthly life or, if they do, time has passed unknown to them.
In Holland, Folklore states that these rings are left by the Devil's milk churn. When he picks it back up again, the ring is left. Scandinavian people believe these rings are where the elves come to dance.
Germany knows them as, "Witches Rings", and in many European countries these rings are associated with sorcery and bad luck.
Out here in the back country they must not hold much importance. I suppose this property owner believes that it is just a ring of mushrooms spores living underneath the soil. Just what kind of fun is that, I ask? I drove by yesterday to see if the ring had, "completed itself", only to find it had met its fate with the lawn mower.
"Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable."
