Magick of Trees with Wee Darby

Trees are nature’s oldest living magick.

I’ll always treasure the grand memories of my Daddy taking me by my hand and letting me tag along on the many strolls we took through different forest paths. A true  highlight of my childhood, while I learned about the different trees. I’d  watch the squirrels and other creatures scurry about and make nests in the towering giants these critters called home.

 A few favorite fairy trees:

The Sacred Oak is not only king of the forest, but considered the most favored “home” of the fairies.  The golden flowered shrub called Gorse (also known as furze) is most definitely a fairy favorite. They love to hide among the thorny limbs, a treasured safe haven.

The Hawthorn was once used for decorating May poles, and is still used in the making of wands for protection. It was also once considered as the witches tree.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’ve attached a photo I snapped of a fairy tree in Northern Ireland – the stone is placed around the bark to keep sheep and other animals from rubbing against the bark. These trees are not to be cut down for fear of angering the fairies and bringing bad luck upon yourself.  canstockphoto5509628

Lilac and wisteria is also favored by wood nymphs as well as fairies.


With the arrival of spring, I’d love to share my latest venture – a clipping from my new children’s book, called “The Magick of Wee Darby” which we hope you enjoy.   You can find Wee Darby‘s book available on Amazon, under my married name of Patty Koontz, available in Kindle and Print.20170312_114712 - Copy

“A brisk breeze rustled the large oak tree’s golden brown leaves. The sun’s bright rays filtered through the swaying branches. Darby stood quietly and admired the vibrant colors of the spectacular forest harvest. They shimmered in rich earth tones of reds, yellows, oranges, and purples. Mother Nature had certainly outdone herself this year as she speckled beauty through the woodland with her magical brush painting on a live canvas.”canstockphoto16258063Patty's Wee Darby - Copy

And last, but definitely not least – Wee Darby decided to share a wee bit about one of the most magical trees of all – and one of his favorites – the silver apple tree!  Not only is this enchanting tree considered as  the Tree of Youth, but is also well known as the famous magical healing tree planted in Digory Kirke’s backyard, which was later chopped down and made into the wooden wardrobe – the magical gateway to Narnia. 20150925_053004
