Green-Nosed Fairy!

Top’o'the morning, friends and all! I expect you think I have been lazing around all summer, snoozing in a shady corner, or enjoying a spot of warm sun on my back. Well, you would be wrong!

You have, I am sure, heard of the saying ‘green fingered’, meaning someone is a dab hand with plants and stuff in the garden. I represent that little heard of group of ‘green nosed’ gardeners, true experts in the cultivation of all things piggy-saladdy.

Cast your eyes, if you will, across my extensive, packed to bursting veg bed.

Look at this rather fetching leaf I am holding for inspection. You will have to take my word for its scrumptious tastiness!

And here’s my jolly attractive herb garden, of which I am particularly fond . . . I’d better just thin out these seedlings, hold on a moment please.

Oh this parsley stuff, it spreads like mad. I will just shift a few of the excess bunches.

nom, nom, nom, burp!

Hey, daddy! Can you scoop me up now, please? I have finished gardening for today.

There’s just time to show you this flowery bit, although WHY anyone would bother filling their garden with inedibles I do not know. It may look pretty but it seems a waste of space to me!

Everything In The Garden’s Perfect!

We have a problem.

In between snacking and snoozing, and snacking a bit more, all I keep hearing are mutterances about the garden.
The gist of it is, the long, cold winter killed a load of plants off.

Well, it isn’t a problem now! Mum! Look at all these nice new plants I’ve found for you.

Just pop them in where the gaps are and things will be as right as . . . as right as . . . err . . . HAY!
Look! This one is nice. Well, it IS pink so it must be ok.

Anyway, it isn’t all doom and gloom. I am sure there’s something good over yonder . . . can you prise me out? It is a bit of a snug fit in this plant tray. What do you mean, ‘my bottom’s too round’? Humph!

No! I didn’t mean this! It is far too YELLOW.

I was actually thinking about something a bit more GREEN.

Ahaha! This is much better. Who needs flowers when you can your teeth into some jolly decent grass?
Nom, nom, nom . . . . everything in the garden’s grassy – perfect!

Flowery-Fairy!

Snow, snow and more snow! I expect you thought that is what you would find here today. Well, you were wrong! Nasty cold wet stuff that sticks to my whiskers – brrrr! So instead I am bringing you a little bit of summer. Sit down on a nice comfy chair, put your paws up and chill(!) while I show you a few of my favourite garden flowers.

My love of flowers can be traced back to the Big Royal Mouse Wedding Of The Year where I, among all my other important and complicated duties, was co-opted to do the wedding flowers. Remember Minty’s spectacular bouquet? A pretty little posy of Sweet Williams with some other little whatsits thrown in for good measure. Fairy-sized flowers, delicate, sweet and mini – just like little ol’ ME. A triumph!

Look! They are jolly snazzy.

If you need me to do your wedding flowers I am sure it could be arranged.

If you are going to a sophisticated wedding, you can always find a suitable hat hidden amongst the flower petals. This jolly posh hat was just the job for the famous Mouse Wedding of the Year. An occasion made all the more enjoyable by my meticulous planning and superior organisation skills. Oh and a particularly good Cheese-cake!
That reminds me, I must invite Minty and Monty round for tea, it’s ages since we got together!

Have you ever tried lounging around in the flower bed? Daisies are particularly comfy and quite handy to hide among, their being white and everything!

No time for loafing today though. Let’s be taking a look over yonder . . .

. . . err . . . I am in here. HERE! Can you see me ok?

Pink! My favourite colour! Mummy says it has something to do with my ears, I think . . . not sure what though.

Now then . . . where was I? Oh yes, flowers.

The very best kind of flower is of course, the edible non petal flower – more commonly known in horticultural circles as ‘grass’. Not only is it comfy to loll about in, it also makes a tasty and nutritious snack. Yum!
