Faery, Snail and Rose - Pink Saturday

 I found this whimsical illustration online and fell in love it.  This painting reminds me of the faeries who, in my imagination, populate my garden.  It seems to me, riding on the back of a snail might be rather slow--but perhaps faery dust causes him to fly instead--which would be fun for a snail, and a great deal quicker!  What do you think?

For other wonders in pink visit Pink Saturday at Bev's place.

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY BETH,
WHAT A STUNNING ILLUSTRATION...I WOULD LOVE A COPY OF THIS FOR PERSONAL USE.
THIS IS THE REAL STORY: NO ONE IS THREATENED OR JEALOUS OF THE SNAIL BECAUSE HE IS SLOW...THEY ARE BUSY ENQUIRING OF INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE AND PAID SETH SNAIL NO ATTENTION. IT IS DURING THIS TIME SETH PULLS HIS MAGICAL WINGS FROM EACH SIDE OF HIM BELOW THE RIB CAGE AND TAKES OFF FLYING AT THE SPPEED OF SOUND. HE LOVES FAIRY FRANCIS AND WILL GLADLY TAKE HER ANY WHERE SHE WANTS TO GO.
FAIRY FRANCIS HEARD THAT THE LADY BETH WAS STUDYING HER ILLUSTRATION. SHE LONGED TO FLY FREE WITH SETH SNAIL BUT SHE NEEDED HELP.THE HELP OF BETH.
DID LADY BETH HELP FRANCIS FAIRY AND SETH SNAIL TO FLY FREE.
STAY TUNED
HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND BETH
LOVE, HUGS, AND BLESSINGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

What a fantastical image!! Indeed, travel via snail would be very slow, but perhaps she would like to see a bit of the under gardens... or give her wings a rest. This so speaks of how one would envision the realm of fairy land ... pure whimsical delight!

Have a BEAUTIFUL weekend, Beth! Today it is truly lovely out there!!

Wow! This is fantastic, I love your thoughts on the card and then Debbie came along with the real story. You two should write childrens books.

I agree Beth! Anything is possible when faeries are involved.
