Linked; Pink ‘Effalumps, Fairy Rings and Daisy Chains

Pink 'Effalumps, Daisy Chains and Fairy Rings

The topic for Illustration Friday this week is ‘linked’.  You might like this Spotify playlist linked to the illustration, the song list is in words in the comment below.

This little girl is sitting in a lawn full of daisies; as she is linking her chain, making a necklace to go with her crown, she day-dreams of pink ‘effalumps. Is it the connection as she loops each flower through the split in its predecessor, or has she been licking her fingers as she sits in the middle of the fairy ring?  To be honest none of the mushrooms is a faithful representation of  Marasmius oreades, the fairy ring champignon, I suspect whatever they are, they could be mildly hallucinogenic.

As the weather improves, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.  Perhaps it is time to reinvent the hippy movement.
