Well, Hello all my Triflorians. I have  been gone for a VERY long time. Such terrible things have been happening in Triflora and I just locked myself up in my Tower and went to sleep for a VERY long time.

It does seem that when terrible things happen, some very very good things also happen. We have some new members of our Secret Society . We have Bridie who is our Bridge Maker. She can make any kind of bridge, anytime anywhere. She can make them out of anything at all – mostly she makes them from PURE magic.

And we have Isla who is a Dancing Mermaid and lives in a wonderful Shell.

Then there is Izabella , Luca and Ashleigh. I shall tell you more about them later.

We also have TWO BABIES. The littlest one is MAX. We don’t quite know what his powers are yet but we will soon. We THINK he is another Dragon Master and will be a very big help to the Rose.

And we have a sister for Saffron. Her name is CLARA MILLY. She paints rainbows. Clara makes everybody’s lives VERY VERY colourful.

I do have to tell you the sad news. Poppy and Rose’s Mum has gone to live on the farm and Mad O’Brian lives alone on his Island and in his Tower. He has had to become the Chief Wizard because one day Wizzy went off into the Forest and he never ever came back. Some People say he is dead but I have been in the Dreaming and his Spirit is in the forest talking care of the Forest Creatures.

So now Mad O’Brian does Wizzy’s work here in Triflora Village and we all miss Wizzy I have moved into a very tiny Shack beside the Triflora Lagoon of Dreams and I like it very much.

We have a lot of new friends and I will tell you all about them very soon.

My love to all of you , Nana.



He appeared in my life as some kind of sage, or wizard – a Gandalf or Merlin – grey-bearded, wise to the world, stepping out from the edge of a grey forest at a crossroads, and, smiling, nudging me gently towards my true way.



Larry Larjikins is a real muddle headed Larjikin baby, and the Larjikin Village was pretty fed up with him. Now, Wizzy is known to be very kind and so the Larjikins sent Larry over to the Tower and asked the F’Realies to see if they could do anything with him. 

The very first day that Larry was in the Tower, he tripped over and broke the Kitchen F’Realies’ favourite plates and radios. Larry says he was sleep walking but nobody is sure about that.

Wizzy thinks he might have to get the walls padded if Larry is going to stay there much longer.


For now, Wizzy has asked Mahalia from the 3rd Island to come to visit and take charge of Larry. Mahalia has had a lot of experience with Babies of all kinds. She will be drifting over the Bay soon as the wind picks up and lifts her veils.

Then Larry will find out what a 3rd Islander can do.

Noone can be clumsy around Mahalia. When she walks, she flows.

When she talks, her words ripple.

She will have Larry well coordinated before he knows what has happened to him.

We had best wait till tomorrow to look at the rest of the Tower. Its getting late.





Let’s take a look in Wizzy’s Tower. Wizzy says that he LOVES having people drop in but I am not sure that he does. He gets up to lots of different things in there and it is NOT easy to get in. Not easy at all.

Sometimes he has all the windows and doors locked and sometimes he puts traps all over the place. He hides things because he thinks someone might steal them.

Wizzy can be VERY suspicious. He has 121 F’Realies living in the Tower with him.


If you are very quiet, we can take a look around Wizzy’s Tower right now.  He does have a telescope. Up on the 15th level.  The Telly F’Realies take care of the Telescope. They are keeping count of the Flying Beings, watching for any changes in the skies and trying to find new colours and soft fluffy things. Wizzy is looking for many, many different kinds of shapes and sizes, all behind one another and leading to adventures and the Telly F’realies keep watch day and night.


The Woody F’Realies are especially strong. Wizzy sends them out into the Forests and the over the Bay to the Islands. Wizzy loves wood and is always looking for more. He says he needs wood to make his gardens and build his shelves. Wizzy is always talking about building something.

Before the Woody F’Realies came to live in the Tower, not much actually got built.  Wizzy was so busy that he never went out chopping up wood.

He wouldn’t use magic to get it either. Wiz is rather strange about when he will use magic and when he will not.

The Four Woody F’Realies think Wiz is very funny and they take good care of him.  He makes them laugh.

One of the things Wizzy has done is to build a MENAGERIE in his Tower. Almost everyone agrees that Menageries are NOT modern at all. A menagerie is a collection of wild animals. The collection is specially for SHOW.

Menageries have a bad name in the World up on Top. Mostly because the “Wild Animals” don’t have any choice at all. In Triflora, things are a bit different. Wizzy is a “PERFORMER” and the Critters in his Menagerie are plumb crazy about being there.  They are also  Performers. The Menagerie is on the Ground Floor and is most exotic. Wizzy loves Critters and they love him.

Madriel’s Aviary is very colourful and he likes sitting on a branch and flourishing his tail feathers at the People who come to look at him.

These are two of the best performers in the Menagerie . They have a fabulous act where the Lion leaps across the creek with the Fox in his mouth and pretends to eat him.  It scares people half way to silly.

ERNIE is a bird of his very own. He sits on his branch in the menagerie and looks ARROGANT. That’s what he likes to do. Look Arrogant.

The only Critters who ever get locked up in the Menagerie are the SPRITES. Sprites are Spirits who are totally mixed up.  Sprites really enjoy spooking people and they try to mess up the Menagerie. Wizzy gets VERY upset with SPRITES.

animalsinmenager00swai_0173 cu31924013341049_0069

The SPRITES seem to like Wizzy’s Tower  more than any other place in Triflora and they really try to cause problems for him. They shimmer all through the Menagerie. They scare some of the Critters and irritate others.


Their cage very often has a sign on it saying “ NOONE HOME”. The Wanderoo Monkeys love to go a’wandering. Wizzy says that if they are not in the Menagerie 4 days a week, they will have to go back and live in the Forest over on 3rd Island.

Shimmerers do some funny things. You know that already. Sherina liked to show off. She likes being in the Menagerie and showing visitors how clever she is.  Sherina IS one of the best Shimmerers of them all.  Her room in the Menagerie is filled with flowers and paintings and beautiful furniture. Sometimes she shimmers so fast that you cannot find her amongst the flowers and paintings.

Renata like to think that she is a normal REDLANDER but she is actually very old fashioned.

Wizzy has given her an enclosure of her own because he has a soft spot for Redlanders.

Renata is always dressed perfectly  and she loves having crowds come to watch her.

The Jaguars come from 3rd island where it is very hot almost all the time. The keep a huge heater in their enclosure because they do not like being even a little bit cold.


The Esquimaux Dogs come from the Ice Lands and their enclosure is kept very cold. They are Friends of the Ice Girls.

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.

beastlyrhymes00johnrich_0031It makes them excellent Guardians for the Tiny 3rd Tower.

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.






Wizzy has just come down from his Tower, all dressed in his fancy clothes and ready for the Music. He is one excited wizard.

Wizzy tells me he is calling the Feast and the Concert – GARDENSTOCK.

Wizzy has led a very strange life.  He has led a rather wild life. Now he is very wise and very good at Music. 0013

Over in the Dragon Kitchens, they tell me everything is going perfectly. The 00070Circus People are all around and everyone has had their sleep. Just about time for Feasting and Music.

It can be difficult having a Feast in TRIFLORA.

Do be careful not to eat anyone or anything that you really should not eat.

The wolves have promised that they will NOT eat anyone at all.

Arabella is dressed in a beautiful gold dress with a blue robe and she is walking past the wolves.

Let me tell you, those wolves are just pretending that they will eat her.  Poor Arabella. They are scaring her – just for fun.


Get ready for the Gardenstock Pisky Band.

All the way from the Bogs.
