Introducing the Leprechaun Harp
It is dawn in the Enchanted Forest, the air is heavy with moisture and the sun has not quite risen. It has been years since the Super Moon event in the meadow of the Enchanted Forest.
Tyus the Great Horned Owl flies through the meadow totally silent. The only sign of his presence is his shadow bouncing off the trees and rocks and the ground beneath him. He is on his way to make his report to the Queen of Fairies.
This morning he has something special to report. Seamus and Finnigan, two hapless extremely mischievous leprechauns, have again been up to their skullduggery. As you know, all leprechauns are mischievous but these two excel beyond reason for playing tricks on the residents of the Enchanted Forest. About the time you think they are your friend and can be trusted, things will go wrong.
The Queen of Fairies had planted a magic willow seed in a pot in hopes of it growing into a natural wild looking harp. She charged Seamus and Finnigan with the task of looking after it. But those two rascals could not leave well enough alone and planted a wisteria vine in the same pot. Almost as fast as the willow seed would grow, the wisteria vine would wrap around it and begin to choke it.
Somehow Tyus has to break this news to the Queen. Realizing that she is used to hearing about those mischievous leprechauns playing tricks on some poor souls of the Enchanted Forest, he breathes a sigh of relief. It is the next bit of news that is going to be disturbing to her.
“What is going to be disturbing to me?” echoed the voice of Alice, the Queen herself. The wise old owl now realized that he was thinking out loud and the Queen heard everything.
“Oh, oh, oh Madame, those leprechauns are at it again and you are the object of their skullduggery this time.”
“Pish, posh” said the Queen “I’m used to the leprechauns and all of their pranks. What is the other news that you are holding back?”
“Oh, My Lady, I know this should never be, but there are two human children that know about the leprechaun village” reported Tyus.
“And they can see the leprechauns?” asked the Queen.
“ Yes they can, even when the leprechauns make themselves invisible. In fact, the leprechauns have been looking forward to their daily visits. As you know, human children who are pure of heart are not unlike the creatures of the Enchanted Forest.”
A beautiful harp, a wisteria vine, two leprechauns, a hedgehog and a turtle. Many pictures burned into the wood and oh the stories this harp could tell if only it could talk.
Meet Finnigan, a fun-loving but sneaky little creature.
Seamus, super, super, super sneaky and a little bit mean.
Be polite! A four hundred year old leprechaun could be a little grumpy.
What is a prayer worth without a little music and a wee dram of Mead.
A hill, a hedgehog and a mischievous leprechaun.
Finnigan, roadie for the Queen.
From the time the newborn fairy comes out of the Irish sea riding on the back of her unicorn, there is a bond for life.
Even scary creatures need a proper hug.
Even fairies get their shoes repaired. Who knew?
Wrath of the Queen.
It’s not what you know it’s who you know.
Spiking the punch bowl.
Practical joke on a leprechaun.
