Incorporated into my blog header is my business logo, a fairy riding a butterfly just as I imagined they would. A gifted young graphic artist created this for me many years ago and I saved it until I knew how I'd use it and now it graces my blog and weekly gardening column in our local newspaper.
Welcome my friends for tea, hosted by Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage each week for Tea Time Tuesday.
I will buy plants that have the name fairy in them and at a local antique shop recently, be still my heart, I found a teacup called Fairy Dell from Spode.
I researched the teacup on-line and found it listed for $47...I paid $6 so got a great bargain!
You can't have a fairy tea without inviting at least one fairy and how appropriate that the Snowflake Fairy has joined us.
For Christmas I received from a friend, a lovely demi-tasse teacup that is perfect to have out today.
How sweet is this? The cup has three gold feet it sits on and is one of my favourite sets.
Our granddaughters have spent time in the garden looking for fairies and grandma has made them wands and fairy dust to keep under their pillow. I have several books on fairy adventures and activities that we've read and I think of The Meaning of Flowers as an adult fairy book.
I've opened the page to lavender for you.
Where are the fairies?
Where can we find them?
We've seen the fairy-rings
They leave behind them!
When they have danced all night,
Where do they go?
Lark, in the sky above,
Say, do you know?
Is it a secret
No one is telling?
Why, in your garden
Surely they're dwelling!
No need for journeying,
Where there are flowers,
There fairies are!
From my other favourite book 'Flower Fairies' by Cicely Mary Barker
Make yourself a cup of tea and join the tea party!
