Well, I guess that's one way to do it.
So, it isn't the most amazing, dazzling spell, but it did the job. Thistle's specialties are flowers, anyway, I guess.
If you could have done it, what would your solution have been? What kind of spell would you have used? Ability and skill levels can be taken into consideration to answer this question, if you like, but I want to hear how creative you guys can get. (I totally don't plan to steal any of your ideas for later chapters no way.)
