Whatever are you doing ? said Saffron.
Well, Gert came out from under the Bench and sat beside Saffron. She told her all about the Bush and the Strong Man and Saffron told her about the Band.
Well, said Gert. Who is in your band?
So Saffron told her that Rose and Poppy would be but they were very busy at the moment.
So Gert and Saffron decided to start the Band by themselves.
This will be very interesting. said Saf.
Gert and Saf made the best of Friends. They had GREAT IDEAS and nothing much scared either of them. Gert had never in her whole life had clothes to wear. When she went to Poppy’s Place, she knew exactly what she wanted. She wanted the ballerina dress and the ballerina shoes. She wanted to DANCE. Saf chose a silver grey dress and a wonderful hat with flowers on.
I shall ask Wizzy! He will tell me what to play ! she said. Before too long, Wiz had given her a special instrument which he brought down from his tower for her and she was singing and playing just as though her name was already up in lights.
They had a good talk to Poppy and the three of them decided to call the band, THE PETALS. They didn’t bother Rose because she was very busy with the Dragons and she was also rather big now and didn’t always want to play.
Then the Girls went back to the BENCH and began writing songs and playing music and dancing. Then they made a sign saying : THE PETALS : AUDITIONS HERE. They want to have a very BIG BAND.
Then Gert and Saf sat down to wait for Musicians who wanted to try out for their new band: THE PETALS. It was a good place to sit because they could see al the Party People arriving while they were trying out new members of the Petals. Poppy’s Place was just 2 cottages from them and she kept sending them beautiful things to eat and drink.
I would like you to meet some of the Musicians who are trying out for the Petals. If you put your favourite in the comment box, they might win a special place in the Band. Now to take a look at the Musos.
