It may not have escaped the more astute followers of my Blog that Marigold and Mariella, my half sisters, are rather more ‘traditionally built’ than my svelte, lithe self. This is due the the vast quantities of salad they consume. As well as their regular meals – breakfast, mid morning snacks, late morning snacks, lunch, afternoon tea, high tea, tea and supper for example Marigold has perfected an ingenious method for obtaining even more fresh salad.
Here she is in action.
Marigold: ‘Fairy, can you test that tunnel out, over there, for cosiness please. You will need to spend a few minutes in it to check is it just the right size to provide the correct amount of squeeziness. Do take your time, won’t you?’
Come on, Mariella! We need to nibble very fast before we are spotted!
Hahaha! Very funny, Marigold! I bet you thought I wouldn’t notice you and Mariella tucking in to my Grow-It-Yourself-Grass!
It is rather tasty and I don’t mind sharing. You can both have another mouthful if you like.
Whoa! Not such a big mouthful, go steady . . . there won’t be anything left for my supper.
Mum! MUUM!! Can you come here, Marigold and Mariella have finished now and want to go back in to the playhouse! NOW!
That was a scary moment, I thought they were going to eat it ALL! I think we should order some more seed and plant them a garden of their own. There are some things one doesn’t mind sharing, and maybe I can think of something later. Anyway, Grow-It-Yourself-Grass isn’t called Grow-It-YOURSELF-Grass for nothing!
