A DAY IN NANA’S TOWER ROOM

birdsintownvil00huds_0085

I don’t much enjoy adventures anymore. I’m a Nana and I am very old. I like to sit in my Tower Room and watch the Passing Parade.  Actually, only the Flying Things pass this room. I always have Birds around me and I NEVER close the window. I like the birds to come in and feel right at home.

When I want to see the rest of the Passing Parade, I have to go downstairs. Wonderful things pass by there.

Some not so wonderful things pass by as well.

 

My favourite things are the little ordinary things that pass by.  Like the PostPerson. Mickey is the Post Person. She is a little busy  at times and the Post gets held up while she delivers Pizzas or counts the number of Beings in Triflora. Mickey doesn’t deliver mail to me very often. I think the Post is old-fashioned.

Today was different. I heard Mickey’s Aquavespa coming from miles off. That machine can do almost anything. It flew straight up to my window and hovered there.

Postcard for you !

Shouted Mickey and skimmed it through the open window. Off she went. That’s two postcards this week ! One from the Grunkles who are riding Mules and climbing 900 steps every day to look at ‘things’ on the other side of Triflora.

This postcard is from the SandCutters all the way over in Phoenix.   Grannie Moo says;

Brynn my seven year old granddaughter has sent you a drawing of Triflora in Phoenix and swears that she has seen it. The yellow ball is the entrance, the orange bits the mountains far away and the brown bits the dusty land.

I might not like the Mail very much but I do like postcards!

IZZY’S NEWS : PAGE 3.

TRIFLORA NEWS PAGE 3. Izzy’s Page.
babysbfreshbunch00cran_0033

They used to call me a  Dawdling No-Hoper. Well, let me tell you – Dawdling No-Hopers see a LOT of things.

There are some things you only see if you walk ever so slowly and take time for little rests. I have a Starwagon for when I need to travel fast and far.

Now, what news do I have for this week? 

First up this week is a word to all the children with bows and  arrows.  BE CAREFUL. I saw Ferdinand down in the Rose Orchard and he was shooting arrows all over the place. The Robin  gave him a good talking to because he scared all the birds and I gave him a good talking to – but when I looked around he was STILL shooting arrows – all over the place.

I KNOW you would never shoot your arrows all over the place.

ROCK MOVE. FRIDAY MORNING.

SEE YOU THERE.

Next Friday, Stone Mountain is having a Rock Move.

The last time that the Dragonness roared, she roared so loudly that 57 rocks tumbled down the hill and blocked the path into Stone Mountain Village.

The Stone People have tried everything to move them – but – as you know – they are very little people. If you can help them move the Rocks come along on Friday Morning. 

We might even be able to  build a new stone house with the rocks we move.

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA : PART 2

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA PART 2.

07

Nana’s friend, Gwenevra, took off for Towamba.

Click her picture to see her sparkle.

She had Nana and Izzy’s Xmas presents with her and Nana had told her where the secret doorway to the Garden was. Grandma would know exactly how to get to it !

Off she went as fast as her broomstick could carry her to tell the Rose and the Poppy to try one more time.

Nana’s crazy friend, Charlotta, flew out to Brierfield to tell Nana Bev to take Saffron down to the Secret Doorway and to try once more time to get into the Garden.

And Nana and Izzy zoomed down in the Starwagon to find out what the Trouble in Triflora really was.

Click on Charlotta to see her flash !

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA

Well, Now this is a bit of a surprise.

The Rose has been trying to get into the Fairy Garden ALL SUMMER LONG.

The Poppy has been trying to get into the Fairy Garden ALL SUMMER LONG.

Saffron has been trying to get into the Fairy Garden ALL SUMMER LONG.

AND THEY HAVE HAD NO LUCK AT ALL.

NOW we know why !

Izzy and Nana have taken a long holiday !

All of Nana’s Friends have been worried !

They could NOT find Nana anywhere and all the doors into the Garden were locked with the One Way Locks. People and things can come OUT but nothing can come in through any of the doors.  Only Nana can take that Lock off.

Bird-03-juneNana’s friends sent the Messenger birds out to look for Izzy and Nana.

But the birds could NOT find them.

   
In the Garden, LightMaker looks like a White Owl. Outside the Garden, LightMaker looks just like a Tawny FrogMouth.

LightMaker , who is Nana’s very best friend , waited while the birds looked.

LightMaker waited while the Fish looked for them. LightMaker waited till everyone else and everything else had looked as hard as they could.

Then the Light Maker sat up on the branch of the Messenger Tree and said, very softly;

“I SHALL GO AND FIND THEM, MYSELF “

LightMaker called Nana’s secret name and flew over the World.

Nana could always hear LightMaker calling that Secret Name, but this time she did not answer at all.

LightMaker was beginning to worry and LightMaker was NOT one to worry.

“I SHALL CALL HER NAME JUST ONE MORE TIME.”

LightMaker flew down to a tall tree where birds were having their breakfast and laughing and talking and flying about. She took a seat on a low branch and was about to call out when she heard the birds talking about the Old Man and the Old Lady who gave them their breakfast. LightMaker listened VERY carefully. It sounded  like Izzy and it sounded like Nana. LightMaker lay close against the branch and was almost invisible – watching and waiting.

What a shock ! Izzy and Nana had decided to take a VERY long holiday !

Light Maker was very shocked and Light Maker was NOT one to be shocked. No wonder Nana could not hear her secret name. She was too busy listening to LOUD music.

How could they take a Holiday when The Poppy and the Rose had just moved to Towamba? Didn’t they know that there was TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA?

“It’s no use saying ‘PEACE’ , Izzy”, said the Light Maker. “There is trouble in Triflora.”

LightMaker looked into Nana’s eyes. The Light Maker’s eyes flashed and flamed.

“Ennyl Srednas”, said the Light Maker.” It is time to come home !  The 3 Girls need you. There is TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA.”

STARWAGON TIME.
