The Dragonfly Ball


Welcome...welcome..my winged friend...welcome at The Dragonfly Ball...may this evening be magical...leave your worries at the garden gate and fly with us through the night.
We, The Dragonflies from the Hilltop ,are very happy to meet you here in the secret garden of the Dutchess.
It is an honor inviting you to fly with us tonight...Oh, you look surprised...yes my dear.. we are really going to fly in this beautiful starry summernightsky....afraid your wings will not hold you...don't be scared...Oh..its your first time flying....Its going to be oke my friend....lets start with a little flying lesson...The first thing you learn is how to 'hover'..,you know,like the Dragonflies..when they hover over the water...And there is just one thing you have to do before 'lift of'...."What"..I hear you ask....Well,here's the secret...First you eat.....a big piece of PIE.
Not just any pie from your local supermarket..no no no..this is a pie that can make you fly...baked by the one and only Gustave...his imaginary cookies are already famous but wait until you have tasted his flying Pie...its unforgettable..thats what it is..
So...lets make this an unforgettable flying experience and a night we will always remember. How we love your beautiful wings...we see wings with shimmering lights...shiny silvery dewdrops...purple feathers...and...what have we here..a little spider with spider web wings...how lovely.

Friends..we ask you now to be very silent and watch the sky...a surprise is waiting for you....A Dragonfly Ball without a dragon wouldn't be complete so we invited the biggest dragon from the neighbourhood....just you wait and see..
SSSsst listen...is that the wind blowing through the tree tops...look...can you see that glittering shiny object in the sky...is it a plane ...is it a star...no its a DRAGON.....There he comes..O my..what a very impressing set of wings. He is diving and dancing..swiftly swirling...and.. making a lot of squeaky and croaky noises....strange..And now, when he gets closer you can see this Dragon is wearing a Top Hat..
Could it be....Yes, my dear friends..its Mozes...with on his back a tiny pink feathery fluffy thing...better known as Miss Moussie and a green hopping person with a big basket of Pie..Gustave. Watch out now....watch it...watch it...You don't want Mozes to land on your head....
Goodness...that was a difficult landing..almost in the pond..but all is well...so let the Ball begin...There we see Gustave very proudly serving pie....take a bite my dear..its very low on calories and it tastes devine...
Yes..there you go..its working...you are hovering over the lilac tree...marvelous!
What was that flying by...o dear...a PIE..Yes a PIE...the pies are flying too...Now we are all fluttering through the garden...take care now ..don't get tangled in the fairylights..and don't get hit by a flying pie...
You go and have fun now...fly among the stars...be happy...........................

Tune in tomorrow ....The Dragonfly Ball part two...the day after...

I am flying!!!! The Tea Rat is following me, but I think he ate TOO MUCH pie; he is not gliding as smoothly as I am. We are now over Amsterdam...what a magical and marvelous pie my dearest! I can't wait to see what happens in chapter 2 of this lovely and free-flying tale! Oh, the cool breeze under my wings. These pink gossamer wings of mine have not felt the lift of fresh air in a while--thank you my dearest for the opportunity to feel like a faerie again! WHEEEEEEEE! Ooops...there goes the Tea Rat. I must swoop down and rescue him. HE LANDED IN THE LILAC BUSH! I think he is a bit embarrassed. He doesn't want the beautiful pink Miss M. to see him! A ce soir donc! Anita

Oh my goodness sweet one; I had so much fun. We must never let our dreams die. The music is enchanting and the company is exquisite. You will always be welcome in my garden of dreams. Anita

Me voilĂ  encore! I just posted a very short post of the Tea Rat with his wings on Nocturne; my camera is not working! But, you will see him with his little wings. Do come by. Anita

OH! He is so happy...I am still trying to get the lilac flowers out of his fur!! We will be back for another sliver of pie and another whirl around the ballroom! Anita

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh I am finally awake...I see a flying pie landing right beside me now. What a nice treat for a breakfast. That flight over the ocean was stressful and very long. I could use a nice stout cuppa tea please Miss Mousie...then I will be ready to fly up into the skys of wonder with all of you and your guests.
Thank you so much for this enchanting invitation which I have looked forward to all week.
Your adoring Miss Peach
