Ask a fairy: The fairies are back!
Besides the fall foliage and fresh apple picking available in the fall season, there’s one other thing we all look forward to - the return of the fairies! Each fall Thimble and Blossom migrate through the North Country on their way south for the winter. During their travels they spend a lot of time chatting with chipmunks, lounging with ladybugs, playing with plants. Through all their woodland time they’ve become excellent naturalists, and are now here to answer any questions you may have! Between October 3rd and 31st, use the clues to find our homes on trails around the North Country. This year, to help us and you stay safe and healthy, use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code on the sign next to our house. It will take you to a form where you can leave us your nature questions!
Hart's Falls Preserve, Hermon
Follow the path through the field and a leisurely stroll
Take the first trail on your right, you’re really on a roll
You’ll pass seven trail blazes tacked into the trees
In sight of the river you’ll feel a cool breeze
Then look to your left for a dead tree and a rock
When you see the fairies house be sure to knock!
Remington Recreation Trail, Canton
Pass by the playground just as you begin
Come out for a walk, a jog, or a spin
As you go down the hill watch for the “Slow” sign
Look at the trees around, you won’t see a single pine
The path turns a corner, and look to your right
Lots of small, moss covered trees should be in your sight
There are clusters of these, skinny, spindly trees
At the base of one, find our house, ask any questions you please
