A Walk Through My Wonderland

instead of partaking in my usual schemes, i thought i would take advantage of this year's Mad Tea  to offer a glimpse into my own little *wonderland*; so if you would care and like to indulge, we are off to take a stroll.
Welcome to my *Wonderland*

my *wonderland* is a place that is thick with green wonders, of curious things
and of some i am quite uncertain;

where on the first day of summer, snowballs bloom deep within its thickets.
Where the walls are splattered with polka dots,

and the floors are in tangles of vine and white trumpet.

it is a place where *fairy hats* appear out of nowhere
(seriously. they showed up last year. i still have no idea what they are so, i have
named them *fairy hats*- since that is the only thing that makes sense. to me)

to showcase their own splendor
and offer a resting place for weary travelers.

a place where even the most serious of guardians
have a sense of humor;

and the rocks can't help but show you some love.

a place where grand old trees whisper secrets to the wind
and curiosity gets the better of everyone.
Time is measured by the rust on a wheel

and daisies try to touch the sky.
dragons have breath

chickens stand guard

and all is right with the world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
if you look closely and believe in your own *wonderland*
i'm sure you will find
a smile lurking off in the distance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
be sure to check out the many wonderful *wonderlands* on your
way to Grand Mad Tea! You can find the guest list over at A Fanciful Twist
and be sure to send greetings to our delightful hostess Vanessa!
