BIRDS AND OTHER BEINGS IN THE 3rd TOWER

birdsbeasts00lemoiala_0070

Up on the 3rd Tower in the Perfumed Garden, the Tiny, Tiny birds are learning to fly.  Its always a bit of a worry for the grown-ups. They worry that the Tin, Tiny Birds will fly off the edge and fall to the ground. They worry about all sorts of things when their children begin to fly.

The Grownup birds yabber yabber yabber, telling the children how to do it.

The Grownup Birds chitter chitter chitter telling them things they must not do.

There is really no need to worry at all.

The Spiders have woven silken nets  all around the Tower Top and no Tiny Tony Bird has ever fallen over the edge.

Sometimes you can hear the tip tip tap tap of the baby woodpeckers being taught to peck. The Woodpeckers make their own Music. Its called Peckussion.

Trouble  really dislikes Peckussion and that’s a good thing for Triflora.  When the Peckers start into pecking, the tip tap goes right through the ground and under the ice and into the Cave of Trouble. She HATES the sound of it. She hates  the sound even more when the Tiny Peckers are learning to peck.

Down in the Garden amongst the Sheep, Amelia is digging a well. Amelia is very tiny indeed. Noone knows what kind of animal she is and sometimes her enormous eyes look sad. She says she is not lonesome but she looks lonely to me.

Amelia likes living in the 3rd Tower. She feels safe there. She has her own room and the food is just lovely. The only thing Amelia is not quite happy about is the Water.

All the water in Trifloran wells is crystal and sweet.

All the water in Trifloran wells is good for you.

But maybe not for Amelia.  She is looking for something different and only she knows what it is.  We think its something to do with her Bath because she wears her bath robe all the time, even when she is digging.

If you know what Amelia is looking for, do let us know. Perhaps we can help her.

The Tower Photographer was at 3rd Tower today. Everyone except for Amelia was dressed very smartly and hair and fur and feathers were brushed.

The tiny Beings of the 3rd Tower are very excited. They are planning to hang photographs along the corridors.

Tiny Beings are not always noticed by bigger Beings. Just wait until these photos come back. The Tiny Beings have ordered BLOWUPS and ENLARGEMENTS to give to their Friends in Triflora.

For sure, they will be noticed then.

 

rabbitscatscavie00lanerich_0159The Tiny Beings of the Tower are very proud of being so small but some of them have had  terrible frights out there in Triflora. Gustaf the Ghost Rabbit has almost been trodden on by 4329 people. His nerves are shattered.  He refused to go in the photo and he says he will NEVER leave the Tower again.

Fulmer Xenophon is a different matter. Fulmer doesn’t let his size stop him from trying everything. He is thinking of going across to live on Cat and Fiddle Island even though he is only as big as an ordinary Trifloran Cat’s clawnail.

Fulmer Xenophon is one courageous pussycat.

DAY 3 : THE FLIGHT GOES ON

Guess I had best show you the rest of the Flight and then we can get on with the Party. Eating. Drinking. Talking to old friends and making new friends. But first :

THE FLIGHT

Even the Flying House  is here today.

It gave Starflyer such a shock that she fainted. Fainting is never a good idea while you’re flying.

THE FLYING BEINGS

011

The Beings of the Bush are of many different kinds. They fly a long way to join in the Flight on Day 3. The Kookaburras come along – laughing and giggling. They laugh so much that all of Triflora laughs with them.

Well – almost all of Triflora. One of the Kookaburras  by the name of Goobra, simply would not laugh. She would not fly. She would not join in at all.

Goobra has made a promise for the Party. She has promised that she will laugh – at least once. We will see what happens. She doesn’t look like she’s laughing yet.

__________________________________________

Quenesta and Raza fly in together as they always do. Quenestra’s  wings grow more magnificent every year.

She can fly where noone else can fly. She can fly higher and longer than anyone else.

Quenestra and Raza only meet once a year. They meet and come to the Party. For the rest of the year, Quenestra is curled up on the ground and looks exactly like a cabbage. She lives in the Vegetable Garden of the Castle of Wisdom. Raza spends the year in the Castle and he takes special care of Quenestra. When the Party comes, they join the Black Owl and fly all the way to Poppy’s Place to join in the flight.

THE FLIGHT OF THE TRIFLORA PARTY.

Not everything that flies is a bird or a fairy.

Rosamunda flies with her silken robes. They swirl and twirl and she sails along on the thermals.

The Goose Rider is a very good rider but the Goose Rider has very strange ideas about what to wear to a Party.

The TRIFLORA FLIGHT ON DAY 3 OF THE PARTY

“Orrible Olaf couldn’t fly and he NEVER went near water. He was quite ‘orrible. He farted and burped and some people say he used to spit at their feet.

“orrible Olaf is not like that anymore.

 

downadownderrybo00dela_0035

This is what happened! “Orrible was at the Party a year or so back. He was farting and burping and he hadn’t had a bath or a shower or even washed his face since the last rain. He had sneaked in past the Spiders and laughed at them.

The Spiders were so angry that they tried to catch him. Olaf ran off, giggling and burping and making rude signs at the Spiders.  He ran straight into the Secret Web.

You must not tell anyone about the Secret Web. It is to stop anyone like Olaf from sneaking in. The Weaver of the Secret Web is called Pandelina.

The Secret Web is woven from fairy silk, just like  Pandelina’s wings and hair. It is so delicate that it can’t be seen and yet so strong that not even a giant could break through it.

WHAMMEEE! “’Orrible Olaf crashed into it. He waved his arms and kicked his  legs and made things much worse for himself. Soon he was completely wrapped up in Web.

Well. Olaf hung there in the Web and just about freaked out. He looked up and got a real surprise. He had never seen anything like Pandelina. He was in love IMMEDIATELY. He thought she was perfect.

Pandelina looked at Olaf with a sad smile.

What do you think you are d0ing ? she said.

Olaf could not say one single word. He was so ashamed of himself. Right there and then, he promised himself that he would change. He would do ANYTHING to make this beautiful Being proud of him. He would wash every day. He would even wash his clothes. He would not burp and he would not fart. He would never spit on anyone’s foot- not ever again. Olaf just hung in the Web and smiled at Pandelina.

Now the funny thing is this. Pandelina, who was the Lady of the Spiders, and wore a crown and had wings as soft as springtime breezes – thought that Olaf was lovely. She sent her fairies over to unwind him from the Web and bring him over to her.

Hello! She said.

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.
