Yes, they are real, and they like ice cream!!!

Digitally manipulated image incorporating a close up of a daisy and my youngest daughter aged about 2 (approx 28 years ago!), courtesy of my dad (brilane) who took the photo of her! V2 is the coloured version, however, I really do like the sepia tones.

Thanks for the comments on my other garden visitors!

Excellent manipulation, Carol, and rather sweet - much less scary than yesterday's spider Smile
V1 for me, it's a little more nostalgic.

The colour is not my usual sort of thing but the sepia is something else, it has an Edwardian look. That's a very precise, knowing little fairy.

I like the colour version but am leaning strongly towards the sepia because it has that aged effect, a bit like the Cottingley fairies pictures. Very nicely put together by you both.

So cute! I lean towards the sepia, for exactly the same reason as Pamela and also because I have a soft spot for flowers in black and white. The colour version is lovely, too, though, and I may have to steal the idea on behalf of my little niece at some point. Smile
