Wildflowers Make Me Happy ~ Inspirations for Fairy Dolls!
We're nearly at the end of our wildflower season, especially since we haven't had rain for a month. To my great pleasure on our walk yesterday, we discovered that the wee little Twinflowers (Linnaea) are back!!!
A woodland ground-cover, their slender, upright stalks bear two bell-shaped flowers each... white, tinged with pink and delicately fragrant. You can see how tiny they are below... (my fingers are NOT bulbous)!
Here are two more pictures...
I guess it's possible to grow Twinflowers, especially in a shaded rock garden. I may have to order some seeds and try to grow them on our property, because it's like being in the presence of fairies to see them.
In the last picture I see inspiration for a doll... The body would be in the shape of the flower. It would definitely be like a fairy doll and very sweet!
