This post is for the weekly challenge set by Madison Woods called Friday Fictioneers. The idea is that you submit a 100 word flash fiction story associated with the picture challenge added the previous Wednesday. You can find out more, and see the picture, on Madison’s Blog here: There is also a Facebook Page too specially for Friday Fictioneers and you can find it here:


Mammy said there were fairies at the bottom of our garden and that if I was very still and very quiet I might see them peeking through the windows.

I sat and a I sat all day and the fairies didn’t come.

The next day I sat and I sat and still they didn’t come.

But today, while mammy put my boots on I spied the fairies watching me and mammy and I waved to them and their little hands waved back.

I wonder what they thought of me and mammy putting in our red wellingtons?

    1. I’m a sucker for a good pair of wellies, the brighter the better and my current pair are pink with rose pink roses all over them … lovely if a little grass stained these days. Named after Wellington and the Battle of Waterloo if you want the history 🙂


  1. Loved the story, Linda. My son once watched for fairies to come in the mushroom ring we had on the lawn. He still remembers doing that and now he’s in his late 20’s. I love the fairy stories. And I think the red wellies just gave such a sense of color and place.
