Tearful Rose Quest and Rose Ice Cream Collections Mission

My visions of these Fairies are derived from the fabulous works of Cicely Mary Barker.  The Rose Fairy is shown above.

(Screenshots of two of the characters in the Quest tale made by the incomparable Madame Alexander.  The Rose Fairy was made in the late 1990s as a special limited edition.  The exquisite Fairy Queen dates from the late 1930s and has what is known as the 'Princess Margaret' face because the mould originally was created for a Princess Margaret doll.  I guess you may be able to tell that I love dolls myself and have collected them for years, although nothing as pristine as the Fairy Queen.  My own Fairy Queen is rather tattered and missing her wand and tag, although I still find her beautiful and was indeed lucky to find her at all!)

(Above, screenshot of the actual Flower Fairy Decoration Reward, final Reward for completing the traditional Quest sequence.)

The Reward for the Collections Mission is a new 'Collectable' in the form of the Buttercream Stand which means that you must complete this Collections Mission in order to have it on your Farm while the Quest is active.

Farm Pool Base

There was a glitch wherein some players received the third material from the Daily Quest Iron and Silver Chests rather than the Turf Grass.  The developers extended the collection by one day so if you do not have 12 yet, take advantage on Friday, 14 July to collect 2 more.  The item can be purchased for 1 RC as well from the Base Menu.

The third material now should be available in the form of the Clay Bag from the highlighted Order on the Daily Order Board.  You may need to refresh the Orders today or wait until reset.

Note from Freyashawk

First, it has come to my attention that administrators or members of OTHER groups are copying and pasting my guide without giving credit to this site.  If you have your own group, you are welcome to share the link to this post but please do not copy my work without giving me credit.  There is no reason on earth to do that!

Second, if you find my work helpful, I would appreciate your votes in the Farm Beauty Contest for Harvest Moon FDC.  Please be aware that there are other farms with the name of Harvest Moon but mine is Harvest Moon FDC and the avatar is Freyashawk's Facebook avatar of a hawk in a tree against a dark sky.   I know it is a silly concern, but I do work hard to keep players informed and I use my farm aids and sometimes real cash to speed quests for the site.  So many thanks to all those who show their appreciation by voting for Harvest Moon FDC.  After four years, I sometimes grow a little weary and your votes really do inspire me.
