The Witch's Granddaughter comes for a wintery garden visit...Rapunzel is locked in the tower; Little Red Riding Hood, lost in the forest, is relentlessly stalked by a She-Wolf; The Sorceress muses in her mirror; Seven brothers are turned to Ravens and only their little sister can save them; the Firebird, encountered on a wooded trail, flies free; forest branches entangle and enchant in a world of light and shadow...
