In The Pond

Life at the pond on a summers day...

Days are warm and lazy at the Hilltop. All the woodland creatures are enjoying this friendly and dreamy summer..
There are days filled with sunshine...days filled with rain...and days when the wind blows the curls out of your hair...lovely.

Sitting on a waterlily leaf Gustave sighed....

-AAaah,how I love the garden in July..its just perfect..
-Well,I love August ..twittered miss Moussie sitting next to him...August is very special because then I will celebrate my birthday..
-Yes, answered Gustave..we mustn't forget that...that will be a glorious day..
-Did you hear dear Gustave that there will be a wedding soon....Our friends Beau and Bell are getting married..a little birdie told me.
-They are...wow....I hope they will have there wedding dinner in my restaurant..how wonderful would that be...
-I must say,Gustave,..the Pond looks ever so lovely..and the water very inviting...It would be marvellous to take a cool dip...sometimes on days like this,I wished I could swim...
-You are never to old to learn dear Miss M...you are never to old...when I see you hopping so very elegant from one Waterlilly leaf to another I always think..look at that girl go...she can do anything...you are so very brave my dear..
-Well...thank you my friend..that's sweet of you..but I better keep my feet on the ground...or.....should I try ..just one more time..
-Lets...said Gustave and he jumped up and grabbed Miss Moussie hand...come on..I know just what we need to keep your pretty head above the water..

The rest of the day was filled with laughter...When the other woodland creatures saw Gustave and Miss Moussie swimming in the pond...soon there was more splishing and splashing to be heard...

Mozes joined his friends...and believe me he made an enormous splash when he took a dive....


Liam came lingering and took a real slow lingering bath...


Sir H Hog showed everybody that he was an outstanding swimmer....

And look at Elvira go..who ever said squirels can't swim....



Mr C just came to see how everybody was having fun..standing near the water he stammered....'You all be careful now'..sspecialy you Elvira...And when he was asked to join the fun IN the water he just shook his head saying..'NNoo no no..can't see anything without my glasses..and one can't swim when one can't see..'


What a wonderful summers day...maybe we should join our garden friends....OKE..come on..I'LL race you...last one in the water is a ..something something......

YAHOOOOooooooo.............splash.....o,so sorry Miss Moussie..didn't see you there...

Oh my sweet friend and zuster.....NITA, is the perfect name for this little puppet of mine that Nancy made....what a perfect name. You always come up with a winner everytime! And she looks as if she would fit in well with the friends at Nowhere, too!Oh dearest, we are NOW just getting our extreme weather today. We have been out furniture shopping, but have either been in the air conditioned car or a shop....but when I stepped out of the car to come into the house, my glasses STEAMED UP!!! It has to be at least 80% humidity today....I shall meet you all at the pond at Midnight and we can swim until sunrise!!!

Take good care dearest, NITA

Very pretty pictures, and particularly all those on the right side. The one 'embrace' is stunning also.
I like your sense of humour, I always laugh when I read your posts!
Have a wonderful wall to wall Delft blue day today!

After a long day pounding on the piano keys over at the theater show...Gretta took to the movies...sitting pretty in her chair, she could not take her eyes off that dashing swimmer Sir H Hog...her heart gave a pitter pat and she promptly feel asleep in the chair. She so badly wanted him to do the crawl...yawn...yawn...snore...shhh....

Dear Miss Moussie,

What a lovely time you've all had in the pond~ I agree that there's nothing like a dip in water to keep oneself cool!

Love,
