more seeds


this weekend i did a little bit of story collecting for a local urban agriculture organization. we collected stories and strung them up in a makeshift exhibit. most of the stories had to do with the organization in particular, but my favorite story was about another kind of garden altogether. a fairy garden. it went like this:


once upon a time, there was a fairy and she found her own garden. the next day she started to love it and the next day she loved it even more. she was going to love it forever. the end.


good, no?
