Whereupon she handed Celandine a small piece of black bread and uncovered the dish, which contained two dried plums.
I must search her, and see if it is not so,' she added, hobbling towardsCelandine with the aid of her stick.
Celandine was deeply mortified, since for her part the Prince pleased her very well, and for the first time she bitterly regretted the fairy gifts she had been anxious to get rid of.
Their marriage took place the next day, and they lived happily ever afterwards, for Celandine was never vain and Featherhead was never fickle any more.
Celandine gracefully accepted their hospitality, and soon told them what had happened to her.
Princess Celandine implored her pardon, which she graciously gave; indeed the Princess was so charming she could refuse her nothing.
But the person she really relied upon for curing Celandine of her vanity was Prince Featherhead.
But Celandine did not find it possible to be interested in this and similar pieces of advice.

But on the banks of the tiny stream that wanders leisurely along the lane below, celandine and sweet violet are in bloom; and primroses, no longer pale and stunted, as in the rougher days of March, lend their rare perfume to the air.
