I found a mantis inside today- boy have they grown! I released them in the herb garden and they made friends with my gnome.
So, when we accidentally opened a portal to another dimension, it brought fairies to our garden.
At first I hardly noticed except the birds were extra friendly. But then a rainbow quartz dragon portal opened right before our eyes and Bigfoot emerged. When he left there were magical creatures of all kinds galavanting around our patio. We’ve gotten used to the company.
