The Fairy Realm and A Winner!


“Flowers are our miraculous tools from the heavens, entities of light and magic the we can feel and touch in this dimension. Flowers channel the essence of the fairy realm into our world, offering themselves as the ultimate design in creation, grace, and fancy.”

 ~Paulette Cole, from the foreward in Flowers for the Home

“From a chance encounter, gardeners, like lovers, often form lifelong relationships of great intensity. You see a plant, your eyes widen, your pulse accelerates, and huskily you ask even complete strangers its name, importunately tugging at coat sleeves.”

~  Our Life in Gardens

“Flower beds are a perfumed paradise for fairies that desire beauty above all else. Every flower has its own fairy to care for it, which explains why most of my own fairy encounters have taken place in the garden.”

Fairyopolis, A Flower Fairies Journal

“No need for journeying, Seeking afar;

Where there are flowers, There fairies are . . .”

    I know that you published your recipe for the beautiful flower fairy cake but I’ve looked through the site and cannot find it. Would you please send a link? I want to make it for Easter. Thank you for all the beauty you give to this world.
