The visit

The witches have been visiting the house in the roses… in disguise, of course. Have I told you that already? Oh I think so, but just in case you didn’t hear the full story, you can click here and read all about it.

Yes, they’ve been here—the witches. The other day while I was outside enjoying the most lovely autumnal afternoon I happened to see them again—not just one, but an entire flock of witches… yes sir!

They landed without a sound right on top of my neighbor’s house; on their roof, just across from my garden where I was sitting on the settee drinking a nice hot cup of chocolate...

I froze up—my cup of chocolate half way to my mouth… slowly, very slowly as not to make the slightest sound, I put the cup down on the table and remained very still; no sound, eyes fixated on my neighbor’s roof…

The witches' eerie, whistling call resonated throughout the garden... it sounded truly enchanting to me, I must confess. I’m sure the very wicked witch of the West would had turn green with jealousy if she had seen the lovely witchy outfit they had on, and they all wore the most peculiar witch’s hat… with a topknot that looked like a crest of feathers… I’m sure their intention was not to stay, or maybe some of them did, because I saw them talking among themselves, as if discussing something very important. They all must have arrived at an agreeable conclusion I’m sure, because just as unpredictably and out of nowhere as they came, they took position and flew away…

Luckily for me, I was able to snap some photographs before they flew away… now let me ask you: Have you seen this (or a similar) covey of witches around your neighborhood; perhaps in your own garden? Oh I so want to see them come back here again!

Here’s a pic of when they landed… blurry

Some more blurry pic taken by a shaky hand… you must understand, I was really excited! ;)

Getting better

And finally, I was able to capture a somewhat perfect picture of the witches just moments before they flew away...

Don’t worry… I’m not losing touch with reality… at least not yet ;) Reality leaves a lot to the imagination, me thinks… if you put a fantasist and a writer together, this is what you get! ;) I can only hope you enjoy reading my silly stories as much as I enjoy writing them. See you super soon!

I don’t have enough words to describe October and the thrill it evokes in me... Magical October! To me, the most delightfully enchanting month of all...
