Fairies

Spring Topiary Garden

MD110

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.

Lilly Of The Woods – The Dreaming Fairy

Fast asleep after prancing and dancing throughout the night, this beautiful fairy certainly leads a charmed life.
