Flower Fairy Hunt | 3rd – 16th April | King John’s Nursery & Garden

The Fairies emerge along with the flowers at King John’s, and this popular fairy hunt gets the children excited, inquisitive and imaginative as they wander around the garden looking for little fairy doors. This year the event will be combined with a special spring watch day on Saturday 15th April. There will be the various activities for children to watch and learn about nature in spring time and do the fairy hunt. There will also be a fairy tea in the cafe to re-energise after the hunt!

Enchanting new Flower Fairies range from Enesco

This brand new collection of ceramic, textile and figural gifts features the enchanting Flower Fairies, originally drawn by Cicely Mary Barker. Available from Border Fine Arts Contemporary.

The first Flower Fairies illustrations were published in 1923 and combined accurate drawings of flowers – often based on Cicely’s studies at London’s Kew Gardens – with fairy images based on real children who attended her sister’s nursery school.

Border Fine Arts designers have been inspired by Cicely’s wonderful Candytuft and Gorse illustrations and by adding a contemporary twist using pastel pink and bright yellow backgrounds, have created a beautiful collection featuring tea sets, scarves and umbrellas.
