DEAR FAIRY FOLLOWERS,
Since I last wrote about Betty's Cottage I have been far away carrying out my fairy research, in fact I have been on the other side of the world observing how limp fairy wings perform in extreme heat and how they only come out on the wing at dusk and twilight , in fact apart from the Firefly Fairies of Java no fairy really enjoys very hot conditions . So how lucky are we in England and Northern Europe to have the opportunity to see so many of the species in our cool weather conditions !
Of course many fairies do hibernate in the cold winter months but as the earth warms up you will have the chance to again go fairy spotting and hopefully see fairies emerging just like the first primroses and daffodils that are beginning to shyly pop their heads up in our parks and gardens.
For my return the fairies here got busy making sure the Cottage looked nice and Spring-like and brought in the first flowers of the year and dotted them about the place... it cheered us all up no end
and and I decided that our delicate blooms are far more to my taste than the exotic flowers I saw on my travels !
and the very small Domestic fairy called Speck made sure that the edges of each one was properly ruffled !
and gave them a quick dust whilst she was there.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT !
We at Betty's Cottage would love to hear from fairy followers, young and old and would love you to tell us what you think about life with fairies. With Easter coming I shall be making some Easter fairies and I shall give away a fairy to two fairy followers who either e mail or make a comment at the end of this blog ... Lolly and Buncle will chose their favourites ! We look forward to hearing from you.
