Welcome to Fairy Swamp, the inspiration for my book, The Heart Stone Chronicles – The Swamp Fairy.
While I am away on vacation, I thought it would be a great time to share some photos and video from 2015 so you can see where my inspiration came from.
We had quite the storms in Florida and many of these photos share the effects of one storm in particular.
Below, you will see seagulls who have come to the fields surrounding the swamp to eat. The torrential rains actually drown the bugs. What a feast!
Down the road, another neighbor’s horses were out early drinking from the puddles that formed miniature ponds overnight.
Fairy Swamp was wet and wonderful that morning. The rains brought much-needed relief to the fairy population.
Water filled the slough. The sounds of bullfrogs croaking in deep bass voices filled the air.
Bugs swam and darted below in the murky depths of the black water.
The brilliant greens beckoned to me. It was only a month ago, the trees were still naked.
Here is an amateur video I took of Fairy Swamp. Can’t you just imagine the swamp fairy hovering in the foggy air?
