2011 Fairy and Gnome Hunt
- nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
The first annual Fairy House and Gnome Home Walk and Tour was held in July 2011. The houses will be left in place until September 25 2011, for the young and young at heart to enjoy. Annmarie Gardens in Solomans Island, Maryland, is a magical place where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay.
Each fairy house or gnome home comes with a clue. Children one to one hundred can search for the next clue and whimsical dwellings of these beloved little beings.
"The Fairy Walk" was created in memory of Mary Beth Harry, Southern Maryland artist and author. Her book "Bay Babies" is all about sea life in the bay area.
There are forty-five fairy and gnome home's hiding in secret places along the wooded path of AnnMarie Garden's and Art Center.
We enjoyed the serendipity of the fairy hunt this past week end at the annual Arts Festival.
