For those of you who are unfamiliar with Flower Fairies, I wanted to share with you a short story about them taken from Wikipedia.   BTW, all the stamps used by the DT for this challenge are the product of English illustrator Cicely Mary Barker, you can read more about her here.  

What is a Flower Fairy?  Flower Fairies are tiny creatures (the biggest is only 20cm tall) that live in the bottom of gardens, the middle of grassy meadows, and on the edge of distant marshes. Wherever and whenever a seed sprouts, a Flower Fairy baby is born. Each Flower Fairy lives and sleeps in their chosen flower, plant or tree, and as this grows the fairy grows too. Each and every Flower Fairy is in charge of looking after their flower or plant; keeping it strong and healthy by making sure it has plenty of sunshine and water to drink, sweeping away dead leaves, and polishing flowers and stems.

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always maintain it up!
