A wild clematis seedhead flowing and fluttering around in the cold breeze a couple of days ago.
It reminded me of one of my favourite phrases/sayings/idioms: ‘Away with the Fairies’. I have always called floaty seeds such as these – and those from dandelions – fairies, and this large one reminded me of several fairies dancing together.
I guess one could describe these imaginings as being ‘away with the fairies’ – somehow detached from everyday down to earth thoughts 🙂
Quite a pleasant way to dream away a grey and rainy day!
