Yesterday Abilene and I came with our little seed

and today we found some amazing flowers…

and fairies* in our garden!

Fairies live with flowers, so they have some amazing taste for eco-fashion!

Which fairy are you?




Ophelia in blue.

“Maiden by a stream”.

Lady Clare.

Mariamne at the court of Herod (in cuffs).


The Magic Circle.




It’s 75 degrees in Houston right now,

so we are smelling the flowers lately…

we’re making things… is what I mean.

The way the bees do.

Yesterday, we scattered seeds,

which is all that one can do!

Will you come out and play with us?

if so, be green,

~show your real* life~

! be cinematic !

and we’ll empower everyone with eco-mythology together!

What’s in those pockets?

(email it to me: [email protected]

and I’ll post!)

    Very cool! Lest we not forget that shrewd and knavish sprite called Robin Goodfellow, otherwise known as “Puck!”

    I think the fashion of these women is really beautiful; you should make some for me!! I was reminded of one of Hans Christan Andersen’s fairy tales when you spoke of how fairies live in flowers. Here is the link for the full text:
