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.
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.
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.
