Appearing, Puddleside

A magical creature, wearing brightly-coloured clothing, striped leggings, and a hood, appeared near a puddle at our home this past weekend. She did not seem to notice me as she gazed into the spring waters, perhaps admiring her fetching reflection. Soon, she was joined by another of her ilk:
I knew they must be of the same species of faery folk, judging by their stature, dialect, favourite colours,  hairstyles, and obvious penchant for hoods and stripes.

They briefly admired each other, then joined hands to find a bigger puddle to splash in...a rare sight indeed!

  3. Adorable. Love those chubby cheeks and colourful dresses! I love how one was looking at the other in the first pic and vice versa the second one. Like lovers admiring each other and hoping not to get caught in the act!

    How is it that there are so many like-minded individuals all together in your neck of the woods?
