I found two little blues dozing on a lavender bag ( which if you read my 'Fairy Field Guide' , you would know is a favoured pillow and so soporific for us humans too of course , but then fairies are responsible for much of our received wisdom. ) They were covered by a lace hanky which they will always choose over a paper tissue.
Next to be discovered was Florentine who had curled up in an old straw workbasket with bird scissors to keep her company.
So now there was no stopping them and here are three more amongst the Ranunculas .
Florentine asked me to show you her new dress which is ruffled on the edge and nice and stiff so it sticks out at all times ( she also wears vintage lace bloomers. )
I did tell her not to get it wet in the snow but she has a mind of her own and wanted to revive the poor dwarf daffodils in the garden - to no avail. I think they will need a lot of fairy love to make them perky again.
This activity was a few hours ago - since then I have restored some order and the little blues , 7 cms, are in their
Even more secure are these little 7 cm fairies captured in white box frames, 12 x 13 cms , £25.
FLOSSIE ( who IS wearing a pink bobbly cardi! )
MATILDA who escaped from the box frame but will be going back in it just as soon as I can catch her ...
