Within the head of a single rose, a secret world exists. Mirindal was where a curious wizard called Bluebell lived; eager in magic but young in years. A peaceful life was sought by all but evil lurked beyond the oak. A vicious bee with no love or care drew life-giving nectar from the kingdom three times a day. One fateful day, when the bee appeared, Bluebell could take no more and with a sprinkle of dust turned the bee to stone! Mirindalians rejoiced, the Queen was grateful and Bluebell was honoured with a golden stamen to keep for evermore.
