    Yes, one of the mushrooms has 13 dots on it. Also, here is the count of dots on the other mushrooms, if you add dots by cap:

    4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,9,9

    4+9 = 13
    5 + 8 = 13
    6 + 7 = 13

    Not sure if that means anything, other than the total number of mushroom dots is divisible by 13.

    Where did this come from? and how was it decoded?

    One common theme in all these traditions is the belief that dire consequences await anyone foolhardy enough to enter a fairy ring. Trespassers would be struck blind or lame, or even disappear to become slaves in the fairies' underground realm. In Wales the rings were associated with fertility and doom, and anyone foolish enough to plow one up would incur the wrath of the fairies. It was also widely believed that if animals grazed within a fairy ring their milk would putrefy.

    On the positive side, fairy rings were said to bring good luck to houses built in fields where they occur. In another tradition, the rings were sites of buried treasure, but there was a catch—the treasure could only be retrieved with the help of fairies or witches.

    Now that is mighty interesting!!

    For those of you wondering about this fairy poem, I just created it after reading a little info on fairy folklore. I wanted everyone to look on pg. 100 at the mushroom rings to see what we could come up with. I guess I got a little too cute. Anyone can create a poem. It fit well with the story and made us all think..

    All the things are true about faires from what I have read. Maybe we need to keep it in mind and it can help us in some way.
    As for you dlemieux, a waste of time was you sending me a private email wanting to share info and you providing me with things all of us have already figured out.
