This week our Tickle a Teapotter story is about Fairies in the garden and our birth month flower. This is not my birth month flower. But the wisteria is in beautiful bloom right now, so I went with that fairie. I love to see the wisteria in bloom, especially when it's climbing into a tree that hasn't set it's leaves yet. Then there is the hummer, and I'm hummer crazy!
In reality, this could be right here, right now!
Can you believe it, I colored this! I had to be very careful, the inks wanted to pull in the black ink from the printer.

Beautiful card, Jennifer! I love your pretty flower and sparkly winged fairy. Here in no. IL, we have no blooms yet, just some buds. It's only 26F and snow is in the forecast for today. I will embrace each day of spring weather when it finally arrives. :)

Ohhhh Jennifer........love this fairy. Will have to look for the book by Darcy May. I have all of Cicely Mary Barker's books.
LOVE wisteria........it doesn't grow well in Ohio. My dear friend, Brenda, has it growing all over her arbor but the flowers are just weak and wimpy. I've seen some wonderful wisteria in the gardens of England!! Happy Teapot day friend :)
