Abstract:

Although most city fairies have left their flowers and now live in fairyland, in the country, every flower still has a fairy all to itself. One evening as the author was walking through a wilder track, she sat down thinking about fairies. There was a rustle in the grass and flowers began to appear where she hadn't noticed them before. As the fairies began to trust her, they let themselves be seen and then began telling her their stories. The fairy stories are accompanied by accurate black and white botannical drawings of Australian wild flowers.
