Hello, faery-friends!I am such a huge fan of faeries and of Brian Froud’s artwork that I feel it absolutely necessary for me to gush over the new upcoming book from him. It is called Faeries’ Tales and is a collaborative effort between him and his wife, Wendy. In the same vein as their previous Trolls, this new volume will lead readers deep into the world of faeries. Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship. Readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the true story is told by the faeries. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeries’ tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who travel back and forth between the human world and theirs.The book’s release is set for this Autumn on September 16th, but you can easily pre-order it at the following shops online:Amazon USAAmazon UK

Jasmine Hill Gardens | Alabama, USA


A stroll through this lovely 20-acre botanical garden is at once tranquil and breathtaking. The flowers, in bloom at different times of the year, sigh in the delightfully warm sun. Complimenting them is an impressive collection of Classical sculpture, awing the viewer with their grace and beauty. It is a perfect meshing which transports visitors to a different time and place.

But one might wonder how marble busts of Homer and Socrates, a Classical fountain and a statue of Athene came to populate so effusive an American garden. The story began in 1928, when chain-store owners Benjamin and Mary Fitzpatrick retired to an 1830’s cottage on a central Alabama hilltop and took to developing a living memorial to Ancient Greece. In ensuing years, they traveled to Greece two dozen times, studying at the American Classical School in Athens and purchasing objects of art. Their vision grew into an outdoor museum on over 20 acres, where statuary and more can be discovered amidst colourful gardens.

Since the 1970’s, Jasmine Hill has been supported by Jim and Elmore Inscoe, who continue the work of the founders. They promote the arts through the display and maintenance of original and replica artworks, horticultural programs, and Classical education. Their foundation has even built a re-creation of the Temple of Hera — Jasmine Hill’s Olympian Centre.

Jasmine Hill Gardens looks for a balance between nature and the hand of Man. Though the art may be Classical, the presentation is in the manner of the early 20th century. Plantings are voluptuous and flowers abundant within a framework of flagstone paths and careful placements.

I wish I were on yonder hill;'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill'Til every tear would turn a mill.* Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán…I’ll sell my rock, I’ll sell my reel,I’ll sell my only spinning wheelAnd buy my love a sword of steel.Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán…I’ll dye my petticoats; I’ll dye them redAnd ‘round the world I’ll beg for breadUntil my parents shall wish me dead.Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán…I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,I wish I had my heart againAnd vainly think I’d not complain.Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán…But now my love has gone to FranceTo try his fortune to advance.If he e’er comes back, ‘tis but a chance…Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán…— Siúil a Rún, Trad.

I wish I were on yonder hill;
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
'Til every tear would turn a mill.
* Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

I’ll sell my rock, I’ll sell my reel,
I’ll sell my only spinning wheel
And buy my love a sword of steel.
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

I’ll dye my petticoats; I’ll dye them red
And ‘round the world I’ll beg for bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead.
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,
I wish I had my heart again
And vainly think I’d not complain.
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

But now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance.
If he e’er comes back, ‘tis but a chance…
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
— Siúil a Rún, Trad. Irish.

Movies About Jane Austen:

The third task was the hardest: to select the youngest and the best of the King’s three daughters. They were all beautiful, and all exactly alike. However, he was told that the eldest had eaten a lump of sugar, the next some sweet syrup, and the youngest a spoonful of honey. He was to guess which one had eaten the honey.Then, just in time, came the Queen of the bees, who had been saved from the fire by the little dwarf, and she tried the lips of all three. Finally, she delicately sat upon the lips of the one who had eaten the honey, and so the dwarf knew which was the youngest. Thus the spell was broken, and all who had been turned into stone awoke and took their proper form.And the dwarf married the youngest and sweetest of the princesses, and was declared King after her father’s death many years later. His two brothers married the other two sisters, and they all lived happily ever after.— The Queen Bee, by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.Artwork: The Queen Bee, by Mervyn Peake.
