Recipe for Fairy Soup
Take your sand pail, fresh from the July 4th beach fireworks. Fill with water. Add rosemary, lavender, scented geranium, and a few red rose pedals for color. Stir with a wooden spoon. Leave outside for the fairies to enjoy.
Garnish with a tiny coconut and a few sticks to help the fairies break the shell to drink the milk.
Wait till morning to see if the fairies came.
