Description:

With Fynbos Fairies, Antjie Krog and Fiona Moodie, both of whom regularly walk on the slopes of Table Mountain, pay homage to one of the natural wonders of the world. Inspired by Cicely Mary Barker’s A World of Flower Fairies, Antjie began the process by writing poems that each featured a plant and at least one imaginary little being. Fiona meticulously researched the features of each plant and The fairies and other imaginary beings in these pages are her unique creations, but the portrayal of the natural word is scientifically accurate.

DISA FAIRY

See the little Disa girl
dancing by the stream,
swaying with the rushes,
washing her winglets clean.
She drinks, the little Disa girl,
dew from the silver tree.
That’s why the little Disa girl
Is so much loved by me.
