Answer to Monday's Riddle! Roots Soaked in Magic!

Excellent guessing Riddlers! I love hearing all the different interpretations. What's more exciting than great, old trees that appear to be soaked in magic? Not much, in my opinion. ; ) Lizzy's review will lift your spirit through the canopy, and Thursday on Top of the Heap, we'll branch out to tell you about some strong roots. Friday, Kim Harrington will be stopping by to chat about her mysterious middle grade, Sleuth or Dare. And, Saturday on The DMS Wants to Know, we always enjoy hearing from you. See you all around the book block! ~ F

For a long time they've stood in place- silently still, wearing a clever face. Twisted fingers reach and cross, delivering goods from under the moss. Comfy homes for gnomes and fairies- a place, perhaps, where you might find cherries. A shadowy shade that whispers stories, secrets about fortunes and tell- tale glories. A bark with no bite, these things of old- stonily sturdy; weather hot or cold. They fall in a circle, turning green, brown, or red, then hide in their sleep- so you'd think they were dead. But alas, there's a few still rooted in magic- to lose them to whimsy would surly be tragic. Remember this rhyme when you're standing below, look up at once, and then you'll know. 

What am I referring to? 

Answer: Ancient ( possibly magical) Trees ( Old Growth Forests : )

  2. Well I knew it was either a toadstool or a tree. I guess I should have paid more attention to your picture clue.
