Hello! I am over here! In amongst the daisies – they are white, just like me, and almost as pretty!
They smell lovely but I know they are not edible!
They are very comfy to sit on. I think I may just take a nap.
*Fairy shouting* Errr, ‘scuse me . . . I’m over here!
Everything in the garden is so big! Even with Marigold and Mariella’s help, I will not be able to eat this huge carrot.
And just look at Big Wilma! Did you ever see such a big guinea pig?
I am down here now. Squirrel Nutkin is SO TALL!
Big Mavis seems even bigger than the biggest thing ever!
Is it me that is small, or everything else that is big?
It all takes some thinking about. [Fairy philosophises for a little while]
Hum . . . well . . . errr . . . yes! I see! I’ve got it! Hum!
Is it teatime now? All that thinking has made me hungry!
Sunny day. Guineas on the lawn. And this is what they get up to!
Hello, Marigold, are you coming with me? I am going exploring.
C’mon you two, keep up! Humph – this is a bit of a dead end!
Shhhh, I am going to sneak over here now . . .
. . . into third gear, squeeze the accelerator and . . . whoosh! I’ll show those two a clean pair of heels.
That was brilliant fun! Who is that hiding under the fleece over there? I am going to creep up . . .
. . . and JUMP on her!! Crumph!!!
Tee hee – that was fun! Now, where is my Tea????
Fairy accompanied Minty and Monty to the local soft furnishings store, ‘Sew Mouse’, yesterday. With her impeccable taste Minty is keen to to find the finest linens and fabrics to be made into curtains and such like for their stylish new home.
Here we are then! An abundance of gorgeous fabrics. Looks like we could be here for quite some time!
What beautiful mattresses and blankets!
*whispering* I’m paying, Minty, so choose anything you like . . . as long as we have enough cash left to buy lunch . . . I am feeling rather peckish already.
Hahaha! I love this pink eiderdown! You have great taste, Minty!
And will you look at these silk ribbons! Do they do them in green?
Hum . . . I quite like the one on the right . . . . but . . . . the other one is nice too!
And this blue spotty cushion is just right for me to relax on!
Is that mattress squashy enough, Minty?
We’ll take them all please. Can you wrap them and get them delivered to ‘The Mouse House’? Thank you!
I really am very hungry now . . . . we must have been browsing for at least an hour!
Oh dear! What has happened to Monty?
Hum . . . . he’s still breathing. I think he’s nodded off!
C’mon Monty! Wakey, wakey! We have finished now and it’s time for a smackeral.
I don’t think Monty quite enjoyed the trip to the soft furnishings store, Minty! It is more of a ‘girlie’ thing after all!
The Mouse House is going to be amazing! And it’s not long now to The Wedding. I am so excited . . . . and HUNGRY. Can we get our dinner, NOW!

Have you looked at the hedge in your garden recently and thought how characterless and unexciting it looks? A monotonous stretch of repetitious green – if you are lucky! Many garden hedges are threadbare and unkempt. Regular. Conventional. A barrier between your garden and your neighbour. Boring, dull, lifeless! Functional, unexceptional, middling and ‘hedge-like!
What you need is a Hedge Carving! When my ‘topiary-handy’ hubby asked what creature I would like to see in our hedge I suggested a pig. Naturally I was thinking something along the lines of this little madam:
What I got was THIS! We call him ‘Gloucester’!
We also have a Mavis-face. Mavis herself had a very distinct white mask and here it is reproduced in full bushy green colour – in a hedge!
And ever the romantic, he created a heart hedge!
I haven’t ever seen anything quite like them before and I think they are magical! All we need now is a spare hedge to create a Fairy carving!
