For all the wonder and excitement about fairies and their mythical existence, some believe they are in the forests and, what's more, if you build them a home, they will come.
Do these fairy houses and gardens really attract some kind of mythical magical flying beings with gentle and shy natures?
It's not uncommon for loving parents to encourage attracting fairies and then take magical video or photos of them in their new homes for the children to visit.
Beautiful photos abound of supposed fairies captured in photographs as well as some beautiful artists' creations.

If you make a fairy house, will they come? Given their supposed shy nature, you may never know. Perhaps you should experiment by leaving some flour outside their door and see if they leave wee footprints....
