The Hoodoos a Land of Fairy Chimneys

A Hoodoo is also called a "fairy chimney."  These hoodoos are located in the heart of the Alberta Badlands.  The sediments comprising these hoodoos formed between 70 and 75 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period as clay and sand sediments from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation were deposited. These hoodoos have a unique mushroom-like appearance.  What fairy would use a hoodoo as a chimney?
I looked for a painting of a fairy and I like "Midsummer Eve."  Artist Edward Robert Hughes (5 November 1851 – 23 April 1914) was an English painter who worked in a style influenced by Pre-Raphaelitism and Aestheticism. One of his best known work is Midsummer Eve.

Fairies In My Garden

Fairies In My Garden

As the rain drops fall
I wandered past my garden wall,
Among the dark green hedges
Within the flowers blooming as rubies rare,
There lies a fairy land
As only I the beholder can see,
As rain-pools form at my feet
I walked along the shady creek,
I saw a  lovely sight indeed,
Standing among the grassy stalks,
With a small basket of lily leaves
A fairy was catching tiny raindrops,
Beyond the growth of ivy vines
Fairies fluttered between the twines,
Gathering rosebuds for their hair,
Dressed in colors of every hue,
Green, purple, white and blue,
With graceful wings, swiftly they flew,
As I wandered thru their garden home.
