sprites in the garden

It's amazing how beautiful weeds can look when they have children playing in them. We have this wild weedy patch in the backyard where an old half dead mango tree used to be. There was no lawn underneath, just lots of horrible ground cover. The mango tree has been cut down and most of the undergrowth removed but now that the sun is on it, there is a jungle of weeds that we haven't got around to clearing yet. So..a bit of an eyesore. But the other day, my two girls and a neighbour were playing in it so I grabbed the camera. Suddenly, our weedy patch was transformed into a little fairy kingdom.
