The Sow Thistle Fairy
The Sow Thistle Flower Fairy from Cicely Mary Barker's 'Flower Fairies of the Wayside' (London & Glasgow: Blackie & Son, 1948).
Cicely Mary Barker (1895-1973) illustrated and published a total of 168 flower fairies between 1923 and 1948.

Each fairy is imaginatively shown dressed in a garment based on the flower they are representing.
