THE END OF THE PARTY

gingerbreadboy1975gald_0010

The Party almost always ends up with something VERY good happening. The Cat and Fiddle Island is one of the best things ever.

As soon as the 3rd Wizard left, everyone got busy again to make sure it was just perfect before the Party finished. Murgatroyd did some baking. She makes delicious gingerbread. Just right for a new home.

Tasha has taken her barge across to the Island with her Friends, the Lamb and the Lion. Tasha knows that everyone can live as Friends and she has come to take a look.  Umina is already busy with the trees for the Fiddling Orchard. Tasha carries a white wand in her right hand to add a little magic to the work going on.

The Faerie of the White Flame is spreading her magic all through the air above the Island.

There’s nothing like Faerie Dust to make a place feel like Home.

The Party Place is all cleaned up. The Children are all sound asleep in Nana’s Tower and almost everyone else is spending the last night of the Party getting the Cat and Fiddle Island ready for the morning.  LilliPilli has been given the job of singing lullabies for the Children and playing Dream Music for them all night long. The Cats are on guard to make sure she doesn’t leave the Tower till first thing in the morning.

The Tinykins are dusting and sweeping and rubbing windows.

Every now and then, the Tinykins have a drink from the Drink Pipe they brought over to the Island with them.

Noone knows what kind of drink it us but it certainly does them good. 

They pay attention to all the details, the Tinykins do. All the things that are easily missed.

When Tinykins are around, things seem just a little bit shinier than usual.

Many of the Beings in Triflora are tiny – but the Tinykins are the smallest of all. When they heard about Cat and Fiddle Island, they gathered together and quickly made up their minds about something very important. They all decided to come and live on the Island and make sure that things stayed shiny for all the Homeless People who were going to come and live there.

The Tinykins are dusting and sweeping and rubbing windows. The windows of their own new cottages and the windows of Lilli’s new Cottage.

Victor and Venetia gathered the faerie dust as the White Faerie and Tasha passed. Already, they have a garden with flowers and perfumes.

This is going to be a very happy place to live, Venetia ! said Victor.

Wanda and William are going to live right beside Lilli. While the Cottages are being built on Lavender Street, Wanda and William are busy making curtains and weaving baskets.

William is blind. He cannot see the things that other people see.

William is blind but he can hear 12 times better than ordinary people.

If there is one thing that William likes listening to, it is violin music. I think he will enjoy living next door to Lillipilli.

And so, the Island is already coming alive. Plants are growing and cottages are being built. The Tinykins have made their own Tinytown and are all settled in.

Jenny Wren is thinking about moving into a new Cave down near the Jetty.

And already, there is a Mystery for Poppy to solve. Jenny Wren has found one Tinykin shoe. Just down near the cabbages. At least, she THINKS it is a Tinykins Shoe ?

What do you think?

Good Night now, Everyone.

The Cottage beside the Closeby Tree is all ready for the morning.

The sky is flashing with lights and the moon is full and bright.

Just wait till Lillipilli comes looking for her room in Lavender Street!

I think some wonderful things will happen on the Island of the Cat and the Fiddle.

DAY 3 OF THE THE PARTY FOR NO REASON AT ALL. THE FLYING BEINGS.

My idea is that there is music in the air,music all around us; the world is full of it,and you simply take as much as you require.
Edward Elgar

Obviously, I cannot tell you about every single thing that happens at the Party.

Obviously, I cannot show you every single Being.

The Party is just too big for that but you fairy_17don‘t have to worry because it will be talked about for a very long time and then you can find out more.

fairy_16fairy_20Fairly_fliesDay 3 is about FLYING. Triflora has many, many Beings who can fly. I am sure you can imagine that.

The Flying Beings come with a silvery web of music. The Blue Fairies lead the Flying Beings into the Party Place.

Day 3 is an excellent day. Nigel wanted very much to be in the Flight of Triflora – but Nigel cannot fly. He was a little disappointed because his very best friends are Pixies and he knew they would be flying.

What he didn’t know was that they had been planning for ages and ages to build him a balloon. They even missed Day 1 and Day 2 because the Balloon was not quite ready and they were working on it.

IT IS READY NOW!

The pixies built the basket of the balloon from the grasses that grow in the Unbearable Forest. They are the lightest but strongest of all grasses. It took some courage to go into the forest while Irene was Nuts but they did it ! 

They wove the silken threads of the Lost Spider into the balloon. Now, that really took some doing. The Lost Spider lives on an island in the Unfound Sea and NEVER leaves. Not even for the Party. She sent her silks with the Lightship for the Pixies to weave.

Now, Nigel is excited and the Pixies are delighted and they are all ready for the Triflora Flight.

bookoffairypoetr00owen_0087The Joyful Spirits had been hiding in the tall flowers beside the path leading into the Party. As soon as they heard the music begin, they slid down the stems of the Flowers.

Their hair was flying.

Their clothes were flying.

They were quite mad with happiness.

The Joyful Spirits sang in little voices like silver bells.

They jumped onto people’s shoulders and tickled their ears.

They fluttered and flittered and turned quadruple somersaults in the air.

The Flight has begun.

For the first time ever, the Felicity the Flying Fish has chosen to join the Flight. She needs some water to land in after each leap. The Circus Folk have designed a path with tubs of water. Each tub is one leap from the one before. Felicity has been practising for a long time because one mistake and she will be splatted on the ground with no air. When they reach the end of the Flight, she has a fancy triple flip ready and a huge tub of water where she can spend the rest of the Party.

The Flying Beings were not too sure about letting her fly with them. They thought she belonged with the Water People.  Felicity just looked them straight in the eyes and said I AM a FLYING Fish.

You cannot stop me flying in the Triflora Flight.

The Pelicans have flown for more time than anyone can remember except Nana and her Friends and they don’t talk about it.

They hardly ever flap their wings. They just float and soar and make big circles in the sky.  The Pelican Piskies ride on their backs and smile a lot. It’s a good way to travel.

The Kingfisher is keeping a close watch on the 2 Rascals. The only way they got into the Party this year was by promising not to nick anything AT ALL. AN041

 

The 2 Rascals had to make 2 Promises.

1. was the promising not to nick anything.

2. they promised to bring back EVERYTHING they nicked last year. The kingfisher is making sure they do. They were giving Birds a bad name.

“NAME.   ROSE. (Hazel Goblinglitter)

SPECIAL POWERS: TAMING DRAGONS

BEST QUALITY:  HER MAGICAL SINGING AND DANCING.

WORST HABIT:  FAINTING.

WHERE THEY LIVE: ROSE HAS A BEDROOM IN THE DRAGONS’ CAVERNS.

JOB IN THE GARDEN:  SHE IS THE KEEPER OF THE DRAGONS AND THE DRAGON CAVES.”

Dragon-04-june

Rose has been taking care of Dragons ever since she came to Triflora. Some people say that shw was hatched from a Dragon’s Egg. She certainly knows what to do with Dragons. She loves them and they love her.

The Keeper of the Caverns is so old that he only breathes smoke these days and he is HUGE. He’s been guarding the Caverns for such a long time that people say he looks more like a Gargoyle than a Dragon. He doesn’t worry Rose for one dragon’s breath of time. HIs name is  Lubenrut and he has taken care of the Rose since she was tiny.

Other little ones loved doves and kittens. The Rose quite liked doves and kittens. She was always kind to them but Baby Dragons were what she REALLY loved.

It was rather worrying for Rose’s Mother to have a Dragon Girl for a daughter.The first time that she looked up and saw her little girl riding high above her head on a large blue dragon and throwing flowers down on all below – well that was rather disturbing.

Then again, it is Triflora and children do very strange things in Triflora. Rose is , of course, no longer a little girl. She is an expert now and lives in her own room in the Dragon Caverns.

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA : PART 3

139faeAs soon as the 3 girls whispered TRIFLORA – just as they has been taught, ALL the doors opened and in they went.1b

Can you guess what the BIGGEST trouble in Triflora was?

Of Course. You are right ! The 3 girls missed one another. Nothing seemed to work quite the way it was meant to work when they were all apart. Now that Nana is back from the Purple Haze Retirement Village, the 3 Girls can visit anytime they want.
