WATER

I'm told there are faerie pools in the deep forest, and, if you hide in the bushes and keep very quiet, you may see the faeries at play.   Background is a blend of 3 wallpapers, the faerie on the right is credit to Lorie Davison at SBG, the one on the left to Graphics Fairy.    Thanks for visiting!
