Monday; fantasy;

My granddaughter loves fantasy, another little note I found in one of my cookbooks.

The faculty or activity of imagining things that are impossible or improbable.

Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot.
Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common. 
In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form, especially since the worldwide success of The Lord of the Rings and related books by J. R. R. Tolkien.
 In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, film makers, and musicians, from ancient myths and legends to many recent works embraced by a wide audience today.

My garden and its little fantasy ;  every garden needs a little bit of fantasy;

 Fantasy has the inclusion of fantastic elements in a setting,  inspiration from mythology and folklore.  The fantastical element may be hidden, or  may leak into the real world setting. It may draw the characters into a world with such elements, or it may occur entirely in a fantasy world setting. Fantasy follows rules of its own,  allowing magic and other fantastic devices to be used.

  1. I am always fascinated to read your granddaughter's notes. What a joy, and how exciting to think that there are other little gems waiting to be discovered next baking day! Are you ever tempted to give your books a shake every now and then to see what she has left for you?

  2. Marylin, thank you for your delightful comment. No, I usually forget about her little notes and find them by browsing to look for something exciting to cook.
