Flower Fairies - Daffy-Down-Dilly

Daffy-Down Dilly - acrylic on canvas


One of my visitors from Paint Party Friday, Sirkka from Finland, has such a lovely blog!! ... & I couldn't resist the 'Try it on Tuesday' challenge to 'Send You Flowers.'

Flower Fairies have been a favorite of mine for many years - when my kids were young, I drew several F F Paper Dolls (& sold some of them in local shops.) Last weekend a couple of local shops sponsored their annual Flower Fairy Festival, with a tea party, flower fairy gardens, a parade, bubbles, glitter, wands & wings .... 

I send you my little Fairy 'Daffy-Down-Dilly' & the poem by Nathanial Hawthorne

Daffy-Down-Dilly & sketch


 

Daffy-down-Dilly
Has come to town
With a yellow petticoat
And a pretty green gown
Daffy-down-Dilly.

You are welcome, Sirkkis!
I really enjoyed your blog and your art!
Yes, it was such a treat to visit with my friend Iris, she has been visiting Canada, and will return to Finland soon. Fortunately for me, she also has a home in Australia, and her first language is English!
I must do more fairies! <3
