Fairies are tiny creatures that live in the tree tops, marshes, forest floor, wayside & gardens. Wherever and whenever a seed sprouts, a fairy baby is born. Each fairy lives and sleeps in their chosen flower, plant or tree. Each and every fairy is in charge of looking after their flower or plant; keeping it strong and healthy by making sure it has plenty of sunshine and water to drink, sweeping away dead leaves, and polishing flowers and stems.
How do you find a fairy? The best times of the day to see a fairy are at twilight, midnight, just before sunrise and midday. And the best time of the year to see a fairy is on Midsummer's Eve, as this is the most magical time for all fairies. Fairies love music and dancing, and hold many balls and parties throughout the year, but on this special night they throw the most wonderful party of all, and every fairy is invited! Fairies don't like to be discovered, and are very good at disappearing quickly (with the help of their magical fairy dust, so you must be very careful and very patient if you are to see one
Fairies are very shy creatures, and are especially wary of humans - who they find very big and loud! Each fairy has extra-sensitive ears, so if they hear someone coming close to them they are careful to flutter into their flower and curl up tightly. Each fairy wears an outfit made from their own leaves and flowers, so it is easy for them to hide. If people knew about fairies, their curiosity could put them in danger. So if you are lucky enough to spot a fairy, be sure to keep it a secret!
