Fairies cannot abide anything dirty, especially not their dainty clothes! The Lavender Fairy runs the fairy laundry. First, she collects the fairies' washing baskets piled high with dresses, trousers, hankies and sheets. With her helpers the butterflies, she carries the load of laundry to a nearby stream. There she washes the clothes with lavender soap and dries them between spikes of lavender in the warm breeze.
The Song of the Lavender Fairy
"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle"-
So goes the song;
All round her bush, diddle diddle,
(They love her well, diddle diddle,
So do the bees;)
While she herself, diddle diddle,
Sways in the breeze!
"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle,
She'll scent the clothes, diddle diddle,
Put away clean-
Clean from the wash, diddle diddle,
Hanky and sheet;
Lavender's spikes, diddle diddle,
Make them all sweet!
