This is the snowdrop fairy from Mary Cecily Barker’s flower fairies book. And this is her song:
Deep sleeps the winter, Cold, wet, and
grey; Surely all the world is
dead; Spring is far away.
Wait! The world shall waken;
It is not dead, for lo,
The Fair Maids of February
Stand in the snow!
Ok so it’s not exactly snowing today, in fact it is pretty mild for the time of year, but it certainly is wet and grey.
Wet and grey has been my mood for the last few weeks, and I decided it was definitely time for some signs of spring. So I have changed my blog background in the hope that my mood will follow – small steps! 🙂
