Spring Fairies in the Nest

Nothing is so beautiful as spring --
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling. 
       - Gerard Manley Hopkins
 

I've been busy making Spring fairies as the weather has warmed and the flowers in my garden have begun to bloom.

They're all in the shop if you'd like to see more.

  1. So beautiful. Such lovely little faces:)

    Do you dye the locks yourself or do you buy them? Love the mix of colours.
