WELCOME TO THE FAIRY GARDEN

Things have been very difficult for everyone in Triflora and we have been very very quiet.

Now we think that everything is peaceful and happy again -so we will tell you more about what is happening.

Clara and Amethyst are building a new doorway into Triflora. They are building a fairy garden at the bottom of the Yard .

It is under the banana trees and the tree with the purple flowers.

Its time to open the doors of Triflora again and tell you about all the things that are happening there.

We have some new members :

WE have Oscar and Ella and Louis and Polly and Rosa  and Amethyst and more.

You will be hearing from all of them very soon.

THE LAST POSARONA : AMAZING

aegleelffantasy00tola_0059

An angry Larjkins Child is something  AMAZING. The Larjikins are the Casual Observers of Triflora and they don’t often get really angry.

BUT WHEN THEY DO …. !

As soon as she had hidden her Dolls in a safe place, Lamonta set out looking for Trouble. Larjikins are not as big as Giants but they are still BIG and they are extremely HEAVY.

The ground shuddered and shook when Lamonta’s angry feet touched it.  Little Quakes spread out from where her heels thumped down.

The air rippled and whistled and blew as she walked along swinging her arms. Each time she breathed in, the air was sucked back and each time she breathed out, a little tornado whooshed out.

“What in the pixelated world was that ?”

said Pixelito. The Lamonta tornado had bounced him clear out of the sky and onto the rocks. Pixelito shook himself all over and flew after the strange big little girl who had shaken his world. Lamonta was singing as she went along. Her Voice was also LARGE. Something like a volcano erupting.

The baby Eaglets were so scared they opened their beaks and howled and howled. Eaglets look pretty wicked but they are actually very sensitive and very gentle. Mother Eaglet tried to calm them down but then she saw the BONES. And then she saw Little Mannikins crying over the bones.

“ Trouble HAS been here. “

said Mother Eaglet.

She left Little Mannikins to take care of her babies and followed the sound of Lamonta thumping along.

Back in Larjikin House, everyone was waking up and looking for Lamonta. Sure enough, she had left a note. The note said;

“I AM GONE TO LOOK FOR TRUBBL”

aesopsfablesnew00aeso_0163

Everywhere she went, Beings heard her singing

HERE I COME, TRUBBL. READY OR NOT.

Everywhere she went, the ground shook and the air trembled.

Everywhere she went, Beings stopped what they were doing and followed her. All the Gentle Beings.  There’s nothing quite as scarey as Gentle Beings when they’re  roused up.

IN THE PERFUMED GARDEN ON THE ROOF OF THE 3rd TOWER

auntfriendlysgif00bake_0066

Nana loves Birds. Wizzy loves birds. The birds spend a lot of time in the Towers. Wizzy spends an hour every morning making special breakfasts for them. And  they bring Nana all manner of news.

However, on the roof of the 3rd Tower is the best place for a Bird Party. The birds come there for weddings and funerals and birthdays and just for plain fun.

The Bird Choir practises there. Once a week.

There is quite a garden up on top as well and a lake for the Birds that like the Water.

I don’t think I have told you about the 3rd Tower.

It’s a very tiny tower. Well – it seems tiny because it is the Tower of the Tiniest Beings in all of Triflora. Sometimes, little People and little Beings need a place of their very own.

The 3rd Tower tinkles with tiny laughter and shimmers with wee little fairy people. They call it the Miniature Tower and then they laugh because it doesn’t seem miniature to them at all. It fits them perfectly.

One of the very best things about the 3rd Tower is the COLOUR. Most towers are beautiful, but kind of stoney and grey. Some Towers are very scarey and others are absolutely dangerous.

The 3rd Tower is the only one which is truly colourful.

auntfriendlysgif00bake_0209

The Guardians of the 3rd Tower are the Sheep. Perhaps you don’t think Sheep make very Good Guardians. Sheep don’t seem to be very tough or very mean or even very clever.

But the Sheep are perfect for the Miniature Tower. They wander around eating grass and looking peaceful.

Nobody asks them why they are there.

Nobody thinks a Sheep is guarding something as precious as the Miniature Castle.

Creatures trust Sheep.

Everyone looks at a Sheep and thinks

I am cleverer and smarter than that Sheep. I could NEVER be tricked by a Sheep”

Well, let me tell you, these are smart and clever Sheep and they can trick most people.

beastlyrhymes00johnrich_0031It makes them excellent Guardians for the Tiny 3rd Tower.

Now, when you hear of anyone or anything going into the Miniature Tower, please do remember that they are truly tiny.

Just look at the wee little Pig catching the wreath of flowers. He is only as big as an eyelash.

I was going to tell you more about the Perfumed Garden but I am sleepy now so I shall tell you tomorrow.  Good Night for now.  Sleep sweetly.

BACK AT NANA’S ON AN ORDINARY DAY

admiralscaravan00carriala_0076

CHILDREN ONLY

The first thing Nana does when she is awake it to go across to that window and listen carefully. She makes sure that there is some music playing someplace in Triflora so that Trouble doesn’t get a foot into the Day. Trouble is allergic to Music.

The second thing she does when she wakes up is to listen for the sound she loves. The Children. The Children live on the 2nd floor from the Top of the Tower. Right underneath Nana.

These are the Children who will always be Children. The Children who will not grow up. The 2nd Floor from the Top of the Tower is their home. They can come and go. They can fly out the windows. Its an ENORMOUS floor. The Children take care of themselves on the 2nd Floor from the Top because some of them have been alive for a very long time and know just what to do.

aegleelffantasy00tola_0059

The 2nd Floor from the Top is a wonderful Place. Nobody on the 2nd Floor thinks that Children need to be treated like babies all the time.

The 2nd Floor Children play all over Triflora in the daytime and at night they all come home and Nana and the Spiders weave a protection all round the 2nd Floor from the Top.

Sometimes, the Children have overnight guests. The Guests are safe there in the Tower – all night long.

Just yesterday, a strange little fellow was washed up on the rocks at the back of the Tower. He had tiny wings and a pointed face. Every big person scared him and he started to tremble and shake.

Only the Children could calm him down. He wouldn’t even let Jenny Wren near him.

The Children took him home for the Night. They fed him on Honey and sweet apple cider and wrapped him in blankets of Spider Silk.  He hasn’t spoken one word but when they woke this morning, he was sitting on the windowsill and singing a strange and beautiful song that smelled of the Perfumed Sea.

The Minders live on the Ground Floor of the Tower. Nana has rather a lot of Minders but they don’t all stay in the Tower at the same time. Loony Len plays the Lute. He sits just inside the Front Door, playing his Lute or drinking soup. Loony Len does not look like a Minder. He looks like a Baddie and he talks like a Loony. He wears a pointy hat with a very long feather in it and the tightest pants in all Triflora.

Loony Len is one of the best of the Door Minders. He notices all the details of the Beings who come in the Front Door.  So – when Legless Les came a-knocking, Loony Les was watching him closely. Poor Legless Les. He had a skinny black cat with him. EVERYONE knows that Nana will NOT have Cats in the Tower except on Party Day. Les tried to trick Loony into getting drunk but Loony is not someone you can trick. There is no way he is letting Legless Les into the Tower.

Nana spends most of her morning up in her Rooms. With eyes as old and wise as hers, she can watch the Parade passing a very long way away. In the Mornings, Nana has a very hot bath and dresses in her black dress and boots. Then she sits and waits on the Rooftop for her Gatherers to bring her all the News. The Gatherers do NOT come through the Front Door. Each Gatherer has a special way of getting into the Tower.

Young Caperlee gathers the news from the Mountains.

Young Caperlee leaps so far that he plain bounces from the nearest Mountain Top straight onto Nana’s rooftop even with a baby goat over his shoulders. 

emeraldcityofoz00baumrich_0257

As soon as Nana sees that Baby Goat she sends them down to the 4th Floor.

THE LEAST, THE LONELY AND THE LOST. THE SICK THE SAD AND THE SORROWFUL go to the 4th Floor.

Young Terrence is in charge of the 4th Floor. His ego is pretty big  and he thinks he is extremely important. He even wears a Crown. The thing is – his heart is as big as his EGO and his Brain is mighty big as well.

Terrence knows just what to do for THE LEAST, THE LONELY AND THE LOST. THE SICK THE SAD AND THE SORROWFUL.

He knows just what to do for a little mountain Goat.
