Disguise Illustration Friday and end of summer paint party

As disguises go it was not the best. Luckily the sunflowers were tall enough the children in the garden couldn't reach them. She still felt nervous and ready to duck between the petals when she heard the children or the dreaded cat.

I have had flowers and fairies stuck in my head after reading A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book.

Here and here are more of my fairies.

Paint Party Friday summers almost over but the sunflowers are really just getting going here on the west coast.

Loved the book, has anyone else read it? Its not a light or fluffy read. There are many undercurrents explored. The end of the English upper class life and magic of childhood.

Now I understand why mostly only children can see them. Magical work!
