The Tulip Hunt...

There is nothing Miss Moussie likes best then searching the Hilltop grounds with her spy kit..
A lovely orange sun accompanies her and is doing his best to keep her warm..
There is a fierce March wind blowing today...
So far Miss Moussie didn't find anything out of the unusual....all was well on the Hilltop.
Yes,there were some crocuses to focus on...but she already spotted them a few days ago..
-Maybe I can go on a Tulip hunt..Miss Moussie twittered to herself...and there she went..in the direction of the Hilltop meadow..

Whilst walking towards the meadow Miss Moussie needs to cross the Dangerous Drumble...!
The Dangerous Drumble is the stream running through the Hilltop forest....in Springtime the water runs wild..and you better not fall in...because nobody knows where this drumble ends...or where it begins..so one could get seriously lost...and wet...!
Now we all know Miss Moussie isn't the best of swimmers on the Hilltop..Lets hope she will be very careful....



-There it is...squeaked Miss Moussie...the Drumble....my goodness..it looks wild..how very exiting...better find the bridge....its much to deep to wade through..
Soon the bridge was found.....a big log of oak....
-Hm...twittered Miss Moussie...well..I always think old logs are suspicious..but this one looks very stable....I suppose I can cross the Drumble safe and sound...
There she went...very courageous..and very swift..
When she reached solid ground again she uttered a little squeak out of relieve..PHEW...that was scary...
After a few minutes Miss Moussie saw the meadow...she started running...her spy kit was humping and bumping on her back...How lovely it would be when SHE could be the one to find the first spring Tulip...
The forest opened...Miss Moussie could see a a green horizon..the trees at the edge of the forest waved there bare branches and bowed in the wind..like they were saying hello...hello dear Moussie...

For a while Miss Moussie just stood there..at he edge of the forest..then she opened her spy kit....
With her nose almost on the ground Miss Moussie stepped into the green grass....spying through her magnifying glass!
There she went...
-Grass..grass...green grass..she mumbled....dirt...more dirt...a Daisy....dirt..green dirt..and then she stopped in her tracks...again mumbling..what did I just say......A DAISY....my goodness...A DAISY..she found the first daisy..this was sooooooo much better then a Tulip...
-She turned around..did her eyes play tricks on her...no....there is was..a beautiful fragile fairy white Daisy!



-This is a very important catch..twittered Miss Moussie...this means it really and truly IS Spring...HURRAY..and she made a little jump out of joy..And whilst jumping she saw more Daisies in the field...my goodness..one two three...twenty five..
-I'll better take some home with me..she twittered....so I can let everybody know its spring..and we can call the meadow Daisy Meadow again...

And so she did....she threw all the spy stuff out of the bag...and filled it with Daisies..she tied her magnifying glass around her neck on a string of grass..and headed home....singing a song..

Lets follow her dear readers and friends..I have a feeling a new adventure starts today...and it has something to do with a Daisy and a Drumble....

AHHHH....the Adventures of the Divine Miss M.....I have been waiting for a long time for this! Her little Spy Kit is so necessary right now, with so many dangers over head!!! Little Miss M., we are following you on this most magnificent mosey around Hilltop; we here at Rabbit Hill are still buried in deep snow. The rabbits' paw tracks indicate there is life buzzing about, but our eaten up bushes tell us that near-starvation is ever so eminent. May goodness and abundance be found through your looking glass! WE LOVE YOU!! Nita, Tea Rat and RATTUS!

Did Miss M. find more evidence of Spring dearest? I was thinking of her yesterday as we HAPPILY trudged out the door to our destination for fun. THERE IS STILL SO MUCH SNOW on the ground, though we got a great melt. But I wondered how the Divine Miss M. would fare in our mountains of snow!!!! She would be hard-pressed to find any buds of crocus or grape hyacinth!!!!

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN DEAREST!!! AND WE ARE AT IT AGAIN TODAY!!! I LOVE YOUR STYLE.....WE ARE GONNA GO CRAZY, FOR SURE!!!!!!!! LOVE TO YOU, Nita

I, too, was on the hunt for tulips today. Daffodils and snowdrops were the prize of the day.
