I like finding these enchanted places in the neighborhood. Fairy Glen, is a tiny community of fairy houses nested in the Willow Glen neighborhood in San Jose. While driving down Celestine Avenue I noticed something that I first mistook for birdhouses. On closer inspection I could almost encounter the residents. Traces of their busy lives all around, from shiny stones to a complete open kitchen!
There are doors to open at the height perfect for little kids. Some houses seem to float in the trees. It is really a magical place and a welcome distraction from the real world when you enter Fairy Glen.
A few rules for the Fairy spotters:
You can bring a little token and leave it for a fairy to find.
There is even a mailbox. So if you have a wish or hope write it down and who knows?
Leave everything in place, the fairies get distracted if something moves or is missing.
Thank you, Lili Ghazian, the fairy godmother. I spotted her working on a new housing project across the street. You have inspired me.
Her latest fairy development is in Sunnyvale, on Pome Ave off of Fremont.
