Something a bit different!

I write Pantomimes. Oh yes I do!
Looking for two names for Fairy & Demon - Fairy, name of a plant/flower & Demon, a 'blight' which could affect said plant/flower. Obviously for comedy effect!
Had thought of Fairy Rose & Demon Black Spot but my editor recommends no 'Black' in case somebody takes a fence ... boom boom.
Thanks for your kind consideration & look forward to hearing any suggestions?!



How about Demon Grey mould, canker, potato blight, or will potatoes take offence to that?.

Rose and aphid
Hosta and slug
Apple and scab

How about Fairy Apple Blossom and Fire Blight for the baddie.
Or the baddie could be a Hell's Angel called Leatherjacket!

Careful volunteer - us bikers might be on to you if you label us as baddies :-)

We bikers are not baddies at all....we're lovely 2-wheelers, real goodies, in fact! And we're not bad at gardening either, ha! Surprising how many plants you can fit on a motorbike (see my new blog).

We're bikers too you know, of the H-D kind!!

Harley Davidson - lovely - I don't actually know anything about motorbikes, but love all the shiny bits on the Harleys! Well, girls always love all shiny things!
I've only got a 50cc which I use daily for getting to work and back again - I know it's only a baby bke but it does the job and it's mega cheap to I've got more money to spend on my garden, of course! Only £5 per fortnight for fuel, £15 per year to tax it and £130 per year to insure it - cheap as chips! Who needs a car? I can get many plants home from the shops on my bike, it's a mobile hanging basket sometimes.

I'm just the passenger! My legs are too short to touch the ground so I'd just fall over at the next set of lights!!
