What Are Fairies Made Of?

I've been eyeballing these oddies for a while. They grow at the end of our long road home, and I pass them every day. For a long time they were just pods shaped like elf shoes, and I wondered what might be in them but wouldn't let myself peek.

The wait was so worth it. They exploded into silky dandelion-like fluff. Sweet Potato said they look like they might turn into fairies.

We think they're angels who somehow got a little stuck, so we free as many as we can. If you set them free with a little wish, sometimes they swirl back at you and wink. ;) FMF
