Monday's Riddle! Rooted in Magic...

Hello Riddlers! It's that time again- can you guess the theme this week? I have seen one or two of these before. I'm sure of it! ; ) ~ 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? 

I gave you a clue!

  2. I was thinking a fairy ring but then read 'They fall in a circle' so I'm now thinking toadstools OR because of the line 'A bark with no bite, these things of old- stonily sturdy' I'm thinking a tree. No, I'm sticking with a toadstool.

    Trees? The lines suggest different parts of a tree to me.

  4. Trees are my guess, though the circle thing has me confused :)

  5. I'm with the others. Trees. They have all the requisites as the answer: rooted, sometimes laden with cherries, home to woodland creatures, bark but doesn't bite and all those seasonal colors.

  13. I'm thinking leaves. They hide cherries, give you shade, and they fall in autumn in red, orange, and yellow, and get covered in a blanket of snow
