Fairy Garden by Diana Stanley
Flower Fairy by Diana Stanley

|Fragments on Nature and Life (exerpt)|
Come search the wood for flowers,--
Wild tea and wild pea,
Grapevine and succory,
Flaunting in their bowers;
Grass with green flag half-mast high,
Succory to match the sky,
Columbine with horn of honey,
Scented fern and agrimony;
Forest full of essences
Fit for fairy presences,
Peppermint and sassafras,
Sweet fern, mint and vernal grass,
Panax, black birch, sugar maple,
Sweet and scent for Dian's table,
Wild rose, lily, dry vanilla,--
Spices in the plants that run
To bring their first fruits to the sun.
Earliest heats that follow frore
Nervèd leaf of hellebore,
Sweet willow, checkerberry red,
With its savory leaf for bread.
Silver birch and black
With the selfsame spice
Found in polygala root and rind,
Sassafras, fern, benzöine,
Mouse-ear, cowslip, wintergreen,
Which by aroma may compel
The frost to spare, what scents so well.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
| If you love Diana Stanley's artwork as much as I do,
you'll appreciate the Windows 98 Desktop theme I've created using Faery Garden as the wallpaper.
Just click on the picture to download the theme.
This is the theme I have currently on my system, it's my favorite!
It contains startup/shutdown screens using Ms. Stanley's art,
hummingbird/pink cursors and nature sounds (birds, crickets, frogs, etc.)
It is very feminine in it's color scheme, sorry guys! FaeGarden.zip 1MB
