“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Hope this was fun...I've been outside most of this week adding arches and making a bed out of
bent wood and an iron cot!
when it's ready it'll be covered in vines and flowers.
