Introduction Every boy and girl—and for that matter every man and woman, too—rejoices when the winter snows have vanished and the earth once more puts on her beautiful dress of green, for then the flowers wake from their sleep and clothe the earth with beauty. Because all boys and girls love flowers, those of them who read this book will be interested in the beautiful stories they have to tell, loving them even more when they know something of their past history and some of the events with which they are associated. Hundreds of years ago, before clocks or watches were invented, people used to tell the time by means of flowers, and " 'Twas a lovely thought to mark the hours    As they floated in light away, By the opening and the folding flowers  That laugh to the summer's day." One very old writer tells us that he knew of forty-six flowers by which he could tell the time, and since then a great many more have been discovered. These time-keepers open and shut their blossoms at exactly the same time each day, and every hour of the day or night some flower opens and closes its petals. Then those who love fairies know that they have much to do with the flowers, and while to some they may seem very trifling occupations—this writing and reading about fairies—yet "Another sort there be, that will Be talking of the Fairies still; Nor never can they have their fill  As they were wedded to them."
