Fairy Flowers

by Bernadette Weyde

Fairy flowers (red campion) should never be brought indoors at any time. If by chance they are, that night the fairies will come for them and then woe betide the person who picked and brought them in.

Their bed clothes will be pulled off them on to the floors and bad dreams and pinching black and blue will be their punishment.
