Always lovely! The 13th century ruins of Tintagel Castle, overlooking the ocean in Cornwall, England. Excavations demonstrated that this was a fortified home of the ruler of Cornwall in about 500AD. The largest fortified site of the ‘Arthurian’ period, it contained unprecedented remains of luxury goods from the Eastern Roman Empire. In 1998, a slate engraved with the name ‘Artognou’ and other names from the legends was discovered there.
Cicely Mary Barker, English poet and artist, authored the first of the Flower Fairy books in 1923. The series features delightful illustrations of fairies with flowers of various seasons, gardens and trees. Accompanying each illustration is a poem authored by Barker about the flower.
