"“I wonder if it will be - can be - any more beautiful than this,” murmured Anne, looking around her with the loving, enraptured eyes of those to whom “home” must always be the loveliest spot in the world, no matter what fairer lands may lie under alien stars." - Anne of the Island, L M Montgomery

Lily Gardenia is a two hundred sixty some odd elf living on the outskirts of the Faery Realm. With her delicate skin and ginger hair, she is every fae boy's favorite, though she has sworn never to marry. That complicates things, doesn't it? Also, instead of dedicating herself to learning how to handle a household, she's taken to studying magic. Specifically woodland magic, and she's very apt at it.

Arianrhod (Celtic) is said to be able to shape shift into a large Owl, and through the great Owl-eyes, sees even into the darkness of the human subconscious and soul. The Owl symbolizes death and renewal, wisdom, moon magic, and initiations. She is said to move with strength and purpose through the night, her wings of comfort and healing spread to give solace to those who seek her.

FOX animal symbolism takes a turn of intelligence in the Celtic realm, as the Celts believed the fox to be a guide, and was honored for its wisdom. The Celts understood the fox knows the woods intimately, and they would rely upon the fox as their guide in the spirit world. --- http://www.whats-your-sign.com/fox-animal-symbolism.html

Woodland Wander

I looked up and caught the flowers. I smiled. Sage? Or flint? Which name do you like better?

I think Tass should be in the early days of Lerah, way before Sonai/Dembar's story takes place. Maybe she is entombed in a place of honor in the great city?

To a Pagan every person is a wondrous, sacred, creation. Every plant, rock, tree, everything seen and unseen, is unique and beautiful. The purpose of life as seen through a Pagan's eyes might be best described as: to live in harmony with nature, to develop our personal and spiritual potential, to be aware of and to manifest the inherent divinity within us all, and finally to help all people to do the same. ~Unknown

I like the combination of drawing and photography. Reminds me a little of the fairy tale 'The Wild Swans'.

Oonagh is an ancient Irish Goddess. She is known as the queen of the fairies and the Goddess of nature, love and relationships. Irish legend depicts her as having long silky golden hair that goes all the way to the ground. She wears a long sparkling silver grown that shimmers with dew that look like little diamonds all over it. She was the faithful wife of Fionnbharr, who is the leader of the Tuatha De Danaan.

Eilidh the princess. Eilidh has faced many losses during her young life. She witnessed her mother's murder, she doesn't know her adoptive mother, her aunt, and she has an identity crisis. She is almost crushed by grief, but her aunt Miriel shows her the beauty of our world. Eilidh becomes the strong-willed and stable young lady she is.

Just a little further...

Airmed Celtic Goddess of Healing. In Irish mythology, one of the Tuatha Dé Danann. With her father Dian Cecht and brother Miach, she healed those injured in the Second Battle of Magh Tuiredh. After her jealous father slew her brother, Miach, Airmed wept over her brother's grave. Watered by her tears, all the healing herbs of the world sprung from the earth over Miach's body.
