All flower fairies have wings, but while some love to coast about feeling the rush of wind on their faces, others prefer to take life a little more slowly. Jasmine is the second type. Most flower fairies flit quickly through the forests and fields, guiding bees and butterflies to hidden treasures, waking flowers to see the sun, or dropping dew at evening time. But a few flower fairies, like Jasmine, work under the flowers, repairing damaged stems and leaves, assisting bees and butterflies with injured wings, or helping very young plants find their way through crowds of green toward the surface. Without these hard-working fairies, the more glamorous work would be in vain.
Jasmine gently fluttered her wings, hopping down from the petals of a crocus to the cold ground below. This was the first flower of spring, a good omen, a sign of winter’s end. But she had important work to do. Below the flower, amid last year’s dried grasses and leaves, another young crocus was buried, its tiny stem not able to push through the undergrowth. This was the careful, focused work Jasmine loved. She gently lifted away brown leaves and tangled grass, careful not to disturb the flower. It must still push its way from the frigid soil, but she would do all she could to ease its way. She smiled, feeling the first rays of spring sun warming her wings. Life in the meadows was full of beauty and small surprises for those like Jasmine who would pause and observe.

Jasmine is the most proficient flyer in the Fairy Kingdom. A friend to birds of all sizes, she is particularly fond of swallows because of their aerial agility. Keen-eyed, patient observers can occasionally see her darting amongst the trees playing "catch-me-if-you-can", a favorite Fairy game.
