Well growing up we always
knew the answer to that...
anytime my Sister and I would
spot a ring of mushrooms our
Mother would tell us that Fairies

Wikipedia defines a Fairy Ring as this...
If these manifestations are visible a fairy fungus mycelium is likely to be present in the ring or arc underneath.
Fairy rings also occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he may be able to capture it.
