Garden fairies report on the book fairies

Garden fairies here.

We are garden fairies and we must tell you about what is going on here at May Dreams Gardens because these events have caused quite the stir amongst the garden book fairies.

Garden book fairies, or book fairies for short and ease of conversation and writing, live in old gardening books, as you know.  

Sometimes they are trapped, asleep in these books for more years than you can imagine waiting for someone, like Carol, to open the books so they can get out and stretch their legs a bit.

Anyway, there are so many old gardening books around here that Carol has taken action, believe it or not, and today people are coming with bookshelves to install in her dining room which henceforth and forthwith and forevermore shall be referred to as "the library".

As you can imagine, this has the garden book fairies, or book fairies for short and ease of conversation and writing, as excited as a... as excited as...  well, just excited.  

They all cannot wait to move into the library.  At least they were all excited about moving into "the library" until the realized that some of them will probably be staying in the den and others will be kept on a bookcase in a back bedroom.

Well, as you can imagine, or not imagine, this revelation caused quite the discussion, debate and wee bits of arguing amongst the book fairies as to who should go where.  Everyone, of course, wants their book to be moved to "the library".  

This discussion, debate, and wee bits of arguing has gone on for days since the discovery  of the plans for "the library".  Then one day, a cart showed up, the kind that has wheels on it and a slanted shelf for books to ride on.  Well, at that point, the book fairies said they didn't care where they ended up, as long as they got to ride on that cart.

We are garden fairies and we will provide a full report, perhaps a tour of "the library", when all is finished and all the book fairies have been moved to their new homes, whichever place that may be.

I sure do hope there are nooks and crannies left for you garden fairies once the books are on the shelves. Carol has a lot of books you know and there will be little space for you to play. Just sayin', be prepared.

Oh good! There is nothing I like better, (apart from looking at peoples' gardens,) than looking at people's books. Especially if they have some interesting old gardening books. I do hope we will have a tour round your library when it is finished. Perhaps you could tell us a bit about your favourite books.

A tour of the library, would be great!

"at that point, the book fairies said they didn't care where they ended up, as long as they got to ride on that cart."

That cracked me up.

My gardening library is threatening to overwhelm the rest of my library... the sci-fi, theology and art fairies are noticeably nervous.
