Fairies

Moon Flowers

MD137

There was once a little girl who wanted nothing more in this world than her very own fairy, so her grandmother, who loved to garden, whispered a secret. We must plant a night-blooming flower garden, she said, and by the light of the crescent moon, a fairy will come. So they planted their garden with fragrant jasmine, night phlox, evening primrose, and moonflowers as large as saucers. When the moon rose, the flowers opened, releasing their perfume into the summer air. The little girl watched in astonishment as a dainty fairy arrived with her plump pillow and luxurious satin coverlets, her chestnut hair smelling of orange blossoms, her dress wreathed in
ribbons of lavender and garlands of tinkling beads.
Now that you know the secret, you, too, can plant a garden and find your very own fairy.

October Opal Fairy

MD132

October Opal Fairy gathers the train of her gown, surrounded by a flurry of flowers in shades as delicate and varied as the glowing birthstone for which she is named. In centuries past, the opal was associated with superstition, but Queen Victoria changed its meaning when she proudly wore opal jewelry and offered the gemstone to each of her daughters in celebration of their nuptials. A magical jewel, the opal is believed to render its bearer invisible, so our fairy travels through the world unseen, seeking places of darkness that come alive with light when she appears.
Her iridescent wings reflect the colors of sunrise and sunset as the gentle scent of rose petals remains even after she vanishes.

Spring Topiary Garden

A pair of butteryfly-winged damsels oversee an early spring garden. The garden wears a gown of green and her overflowing urns are crowned with filigree gates and trellises, its lace made up of fresh sprouts and ribboned with perfectly trimmed boxwood. The jewels are the sparkling first flush of lavender, clover and lady’s slipper, the hem is made of mossy covered columns and the buttons are shiny stepping stones.
