A Visit...


PSSST..listen..go tell everyone on the Hilltop that we are off....back to the North Pole..come up and see us some time...We will make you some frosted cupcake's...

A few minutes later....a door opened...A little and very shy Gnome entered...'Psst,Psst', he whispered...'My dear Dutchess...there is something I have to tell you..!'
'Please ,come in dearest'...said the Dutchess..'tell me..is there news...Did you hear from the Fairies..are they going to arrive soon..?'
'I heard from a very reliable source that Mr Frost and his companions are leaving the Hilltop today'...answered the Gnome..'so I think this could mean that the Fairies are on there way...!'
O but this is wonderful news ...smiled the Dutchess...then busy days lay ahaed of us...Come sit beside me dear friend..and we will make our plans to give the Fairies a warm welcome...

Those faeries are busy! They escaped me while I was buzzing around yesterday, and I missed the slush under my feet! But I am here today, to catch the magical gnome with his lovely message for my lovely Dutchess....we are ready dearest to sit down and have our ritual tea-time to usher in the SPRING! YEAH!!! The bunnies on Rabbit Hill are in contact with the creatures at Hilltop Hall...I think something is brewing, don't you?

Blessings dear Dutchess Penny

Ah, Mr. Frost is still crouched, grinning, in our garden. Holding the fairies at bay. But we are hopeful!

Have a nice, peaceful sleep dear Dutchess, Anita
