herb.gif (3999 bytes)  More favorite plants of Fae
 
I just found a few more flowers and plants that Faries like. Found it out of a gardening magazine, not sure if you have any of these. Anyhow, thought you might be interested. Campanula are used as drinking cups, bleeding heart stores fairy dust, tulips as fairy cradles, monkshood- be careful because it is very poisonous is eaten-- the helmetlike flowers are worn by fairy guards and knights, lily-of-the-valley- the fragrant white bells ring when the fairies sing, ferns- provide a privacy screen for fairies near their beds of moss and thyme. Johnny-jump-ups are important to Fae too, mentioned in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Most important is Thyme, especially mother-of-thyme, which is used as a resting place or soft bed for Farie babies. Really enjoyed your page, very interesting, thank-you!    MREMUSAT04@aol.com

The Copper Sylk
Dear Jani:  I fear you have missed one group of faeries from an obscure group of germanic people known as the Furiians. The fairies themselves are known as the Sylk and the most important and benevolent one of these is the KOPR (pronounced Copper) Sylk. The Copper Sylk is the woodland faerie of pleasure and prosperity, as well as, the guardian of the Oracle of the Nine Gates. The Furiians themselves hardly have any records left because most were destroyed by the Nazis and the Furiians themselves were almost eliminated as a tribe by Nazis, Bombs, executions, and disease. Only a handful exist and their primary home is the U.S.A. They strongly believe in the Copper Sylk and believe their troubles of the past came when they turned away from this Faerie in the 1930s.
The tribe was one of the most elusive groups to track down and even today, one is hard pressed to find more than four or five of them at anyone time. Sometimes refered to as the phantom gypsies, they are not even gypsies, but remnants of Old germanic,teutonic, and Nordic settlers. Hope this helps.  Frederick.

Come out of your Fairy bower
Come upon this golden hour
Come to us we beg you please

Friday, April 30, 1999 4:51 PM   I wonder if you remember I wrote to you asking if you knew of any Fairy  societies following the closure of the National Fairy Appreciation Society here in Britain. Well after further investigation I have decided to start my own called THE FAIRY RING, which is an Association for Friends who love Fairies and Angels. A non profit making Association with Fairies and Angels being at the centre of our love and affection and respect.
I just thought I would let you know and if you know of anyone who may be
interested I would be happy to hear from them.bluefae.gif (3379 bytes)
