Safari Flower Dragon
The Flower Dragon awakes from a long slumber every spring, leaving a brilliant splash of colour wherever it flies. Even when not seen, its presence can be felt in warm spring breezes. The colourful, friendly flower dragon bursts with life. Few creatures can match the elegance and beauty of the flower dragon, its stately bearing matched by its kindness and intelligence.
The palate of spring has been splashed across this beautiful 4 ½ inch long and 5 ¼ inch tall flower dragon. Shades of green, yellow, orange, and pink blend together in a colourful array. All cultures have their stories of spring. The Greeks famously tell of Persephone returning from the underworld to mark the coming of spring. In many northern cultures, the Flower Dragon is thought to be the harbinger of spring, and its appearance is celebrated with feasts and festivals.
Like fairies, elves, and other creatures of the deep forests, Flower Dragons are often spotted and reported by those who travel out-of-the-way woodlands. Never shy, Flower Dragons eagerly flit about any humans they come in contact with, but they are often mistaken for birds because of their small size. The feasts were prepared, the villagers dressed in their best.
Although happy shouts filled the air, the scene was otherwise dismal, for winter had not yet released its cold, grey grip on the coastal town. Leafless trees and brown fields gave an impression of a world asleep. Soon, though, that would change, for the people were preparing their annual Festival of Flowers.
There would be a great feast, music, dancing, and if all went well, a Flower Dragon would grace the festival, bringing with it the smells and colours of spring. The sound of buzzing wings would fill the air, and the land would slowly change from brown to green, bursting with flowers as the tiny dragon zipped about. Yes, excitement filled the air. Today would be the day..
