The Summer Plum Blossom fairy, usually a shy and soft-spoken fairy, was spotted dancing in the high desert under the Super Moon of this year Midsummer’s Eve. As the tide of the seasons shift and the days begin to get shorter, summer fairies like the Plum Blossom will often let their hair down (so to speak) and let loose in mischievous capers before their season dies and they must retreat as the Winter Fairies take the stage.
Plum Blossom’s geisha-like costume is modest by Fae standards, but it suits her somewhat shy and reserved nature. However, the Plum Blossom truly shines best when she dances; disciplined and well rehearsed, she has been known to dance for hours, and human musicians are warned to beware her captivating influence – although rumor has it that a determined musician may be able to turn her influence against her, thereby ensnaring her in her own magic.
