Sitting around in Triflora is not quite the same as sitting around at your house. At Poppy’s Place, all kinds of different things happen from time to time.
ALWAYS check your teacup BEFORE you pour the hot tea in. Little Leroy thinks teacups are the BEST place to sleep and unless Mickey has been around making a lot of AquaVespa noise, he just might still be in there- sound asleep.
We do not want to pour boiling hot tea on Little Leroy.
Lots of little people come to Poppy’s Place. Leroy is the only one who sleeps in the Cups and Nana enjoys the visits from the Little Ones. It makes her feel quite tall.
Poppy’s Place is a very relaxed place to be but the Little Ones have strange ideas about Relaxing. They NEVER come to Poppy’s Place unless they are dressed in their very best clothes. I think they are extremely old-fashioned but I would never tell them that. Their feelings get hurt so easily!
In Triflora, many small beings live in many different places but the Little Ones ( with a capital L and a capital O) are not just small – they are THE Little Ones. They dance at Poppy’s and they choose things very carefully from the shop. They TALK with people but they do not CHAT. The Little Ones come shopping at the same time on the same day every week. They always say Please and they always say Thank You.
I have not been to the Land of the Little Ones. I don’t think anyone else has been there either.
I wonder whether they relax when they get home. Hmmmmm.
( Except, of course, for Little Leroy who relaxes all the time and is almost never polite. )
LOVE is a very good thing in times of trouble. We all know that.
Another very good thing in times of trouble is TOUGH FRIENDS.
And there IS trouble in Triflora. Deep in one of the underwater caves, something is hissing and hating. Its still small. Its still down there in the Dark but its getting bigger and its getting ready to come out.
Nana and the 3 Girls came back into the Garden only just in time but the thing in the cave
WILL decide pretty soon to cause some real TROUBLE.
The good news is this – while everyone was locked out of Triflora – some of the 3 Girls’ tough friends came looking to see what was going on.
Take a look at these new helpers ! They know how to love AND they are tough.

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA PART 2.
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 !
Before we go into the Garden, I thought I should let you know that not ALL Fairies are quite right.
Some of them are VERY strange indeed so DO BE CAREFUL !
The Twins up above simply sit around all day and do nothing at all to help out.
They look in mirrors and blink their eyes faster than a butterfly can flap its wings. They seem to think that any gold lying about belongs to them so DO NOT leave any jewellery where they can snatch it.
It seems to me that noone else matters to them but themselves and that is just NOT RIGHT for a Fairy.
I don’t think the twins would actually hurt anybody – only the VERY WORST Fairy would actually hurt someone – but they are VERY careless about other people’s feelings.
It seems to me that the only things they care about are makeup and hair and clothes and gold.
And that is a shame because they were very sweet babies. Noone expected them to grow up and become so STRANGE.
