Sherbet meets his woodland friends

Oh how lovely!
 I was out for my early morning walk in the woods just down the lane from Clover Cottage when I stepped out from behind an enormous oak tree and oops! I almost bumped into my new wooodland friends .
 I have not seen them for many weeks now and it was a delight to see them all again.
I must say I am a little bit of a hermit spending so much time alone in Clover Cottage but even though I do enjoy the silence of my own company it is very refreshing to find some  friends and spend time with them especially wonderful friends like Fox, Badger , Rabbit, Owl and Mouse.
Love from Sherbetx

A big bird flies into Sherbet's window and stuns himself

Oh hello dear friends from nearby and far far away.
 You may wonder why I am just laying here in these lovely maple leaves.
 Well, something happened this morning in Clover Cottage and I am here giving thanks that it all turned out alright in the end.
Let me tell you what happened.
 I was in my  cosy kitchen eating  my breakfast of scrumptious, healthy, home made muesli with soya milk, when  I heard a big, loud, single thump. It came from my big room where I read my wise words books.
 Uh Oh !  I had heard that noise before , I knew it was a bird that had flown into Clover Cottage and then had flown at top speed straight into a closed window. Oh poor birdie, he thought the glass was the way out.
I crept into my room and was afraid that I may see a dead bird laying on the floor.
Instead, when I looked around I saw that a large grey bird had landed on my comfy chair right on top of a cushion , he wasn't moving but he was breathing. He was breathing very fast and his neck was curled round into his chest and his eyes were closed .  I was very worried in case he had broken his neck and then I thought to myself that I have seen birds curled up in their nests and I knew they were very flexible , but still I was not sure about his neck.  I also knew that when I have found birds before that have flown into my windows , they lay still and stunned for quite a while and then they recover .
 I was worried as I thought he might die, I spoke to him in quiet bird language so as not to frighten him and I just left him to be in peace while I waited .
 I waited and I waited, I peeped at him again and I saw he had moved his head around a little bit so I was grateful that he had not broken his neck . His long, grey beak was poked into the cushion,  his shiny, black eyes had opened and he blinked at me and looked at me . I was very wary that I must not frighten him, I saw that he was actually a big baby as his feathers were all new and fluffy. He was still not moving but was recovering, I left him in peace again safely nestled into the cushion and then the next time I went to check on him again he had gone . I was so happy that he  had completely recovered and had sensibly flown out of an open window back into my garden.
 Oh what a relief!  Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is worried there may be ghost behind a very old door

Oh just look at this lovely old door!
 I can just imagine all the adventures it has seen in its very, very, very old life.
I am sitting here feeling just a little bit afraid because with a door as old as this I think there may be some ghosts living behind it.
 I am telling myself to be brave and not to be silly.
 If I can find the courage to sit here long enough, I will prove to myself that there is nothing to be afraid of.  I know my guardian angels are protecting me and even if a ghost does come through the door
 ( without opening it! ) EEEEEEEEEEEEH!!!
I know my guardian angels will chase it away.
I am going to close my eyes and think good thoughts and just listen to the birds and maybe I will feel better. I know !
I will call on Reginald Rabbit to help me , I know he is always there keeping me safe.
Love Sherbetx

Sherbet is worried about a lost birds nest

Ah, how lovely to sit here and just relax.
 I have been very busy making my garden tidy after
being away from it for so long.
It has been raining here at Clover Cottage, on and off for the last few days and even though I am grateful that my wilted plants have revived, I am worried because one of the newly made birds nests in my tree has disappeared. I am very afraid that it has blown away in the wind. I do hope there were no eggs inside it yet.
I am feeling very sad for the mother bird who has lost her nest and I really do not know how I can help her . My nest making skills are not very good because I am only a sheep.
Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear . I do hope she will build herself a new nest.
To make myself feel better, I am going to close my eyes and sit very still. I just need to meditate a little while so I will talk to you again very soon. Sending you all lots of love and rainbow coloured blessings.

Sherbet is at Saint Francis Cottage

Dear , dear loyal friends,
here I am at Saint Francis Cottage.
  As I was stuck in the woods for many days it means of course that I was not able to take care of my vegetable garden at Clover Cottage.
 Sadly, lots of my veggies have wilted and I am afraid they will not revive . I have just stopped here in this beautiful little corner of the world to buy some  new salad plants .
Oh what a wonderful selection they have here . It makes my mouth water just to look at these scrumptious, fresh, healthy leaves .
I am so grateful that these plants are already big and I will be able to eat some of the leaves for my dinner tonight.  I cannot wait to add them to my famous rainbow coloured salad.
I am sorry but I must leave you all now as I need to take these plants home and plant them before nightfall.  I wonder if it is a full moon tonight . That would be the very best time to plant them. I don't have my full moon calendar with me in my pocket at the moment, but I will plant them anyway and  pray that they stay healthy. Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet gives thanks to Saint Francis

 Hello again dear dear friends from nearby and far far away .
 I must let you all know that I finally found my way out of the forest . I had climbed a very tall tree  to take a look inside a blackbird's nest and while I was there, even though I was a little bit entangled in the dense leaves and branches,  I was able to look way into the distance. Guess what I saw peeping out from behind a group of rolling hills?
YES, it was Clover Cottage !  Thank goodness I had finally seen which direction to walk in.
 Anyway I was very grateful to be home and to see that all was well in my garden.
 Today I  have come to visit this little statue of my favourite Saint in the whole wide world,  Saint Francis of Assisi.
. I came to give thanks to him for taking care of all the little creatures in my garden while I was away lost in the forest.
My hedgehogs, my frogs, my caterpillars, my snails and my birds are all healthy and happy and I am very grateful for that.
 Love from Sherbetx
