When Charlie Fuggs, the wizard, felt the need to replenish his supplies of all things magical and potion-like he’d go to the town pond, nowadays overgrown and emitting a smell that could send your hair grey.
As a wizard he was a bit of a failure. When he’d first come to live in the town the place was a shambles.
He’d concocted a potion to turn the town from ruin to perfect. It worked well, for a while.
Sadly, the potion wore off and all hell broke loose.
After three days hiding inside he ventured out to find the place was, as he first saw it.
Disheartened he searched for a water hyacinth as he knew it would bring some magic or if nothing else settle his nerves, mixed with some happening powder and a pinch of luck.
