Pretty Maids All In A Row


Spring seems to be in and out of the air lately but nature's children are uncomplaining, they dance with the icy winds one moment and bathe in golden light the next.

The woods are teeming with life and beautifully abundant with bluebells and fresh green ferns, spring fever is gaining hold and the time came for Mistress Rabbit to show her face at last...




Mistress Rabbit and the headless one.


I was tempted and inspired by the lovely long eared creations of Evelyn's Wonderland and Harem6 and decided it was time the Mistress came out to play. Here she is in various states of undress... Mistress was not amused!!



Mistress in all her finery, sweet Mathilda was fancying the ribbon for her bird cage!



Then along came Deadly Nightshade...


A delicate flower of the forest, one could be forgiven for thinking her fragility a weakness. Sadly, a dark and terrifying mistake to make! She may gambol and frolic among the fungi with the birds and butterflies, but woe betide those who capture or harm the sweet souls of the woods...



A darkling's work is never done.

It is a thrill and pleasure to meet the exquisitely charming Mistress Rabbit and the headless One. And I gave the quiet air around me a jolt of laughter when I read of Mathilda's ribbon fancying! (oh! the covetous glint in her eye!) And ahhh ... the beautiful Protectress, the leg tendriled, Deadly Nightshade. Mayhap she holds in her hands the heart of ... well, I dare not say. Melanie ! Congratulations on these new fantastical - beautiful - creatures you've brought to life. Yet again you have suspended me in wonder! Brilliant, Melanie - brilliant Melanie!

Mistress Rabbit is beautiful! So prim and proper.

Dear Shayna, I'm afraid mayhem ensued from that covetous glint. My bookish faun Eduardo was appalled when Mathilda sprung forth and tried to rive the ribbon off Miss Rabbit, such sharp teeth...
Not to worry though Miss Rabbit is a rather capable creature and I think Mathida will think twice from now on.

Your comments always encourage and delight me, thank you Shayna!!

Hi Nicomi and thank you, I'm so glad you like the Mistress.
P.S. She's quite the handful!!!

Well, I like 'woe betide those who capture or harm the sweet souls of the woods.'

Bloody right!

And I love rabbits.
