THE FLOWER FAERIE

Some of the most beautiful and delicate of the fae realm, they create the colors and perfumes of flowers. They’re said to be some of the easiest faeries to learn to commune with, the faeries most inspiring to poets and to healers guided to use their essences or essential oils. Some flowers are famously used in spells, especially the dangerous ones! There are faeries for every flower, of course, from the romantic rose to the toxic foxglove—a fact everyone knows from the Cicely Mary Barker poems and her drawings from nature. A word of caution: it’s bad luck to pick bluebells-the blue flowers are said to ring to call the fae to galas- or cowslips as they reveal faerie secrets, mainly where fae gold is buried. Our flower faerie is dressed in the soft hues of an English garden.
