Tree Sprites, Wood Nymphs & Mistletoe fancies

Inspired by the sacred mistletoe plant that grows in the mighty oaks of Britain (favorite adornment of tree sprites & wood nymphs everywhere)

Although we usually think of Christmas decorations and kissing when we think of mistletoe, it is actually one of the most sacred herbs in Druid lore. As Ellen Evert Hopman says in her delightful book "A Druid's Herbal":

"Not quite herb,not quite tree-beyond the limitations of classification,freed from the restrictions of convention & resembling a constellation of stars suspended in midair from the bough of a sacred tree-such is the 'spirit' of this plant. It belongs to the in-between times of dusk and dawn, or the exact interval between two seasons~ a gateway to something 'other'."

Both of these are available at Thyme2dream Etsy
