While the OakGrove Yard was being repaired, weeded, and replanted by Grandma Bobbie and her helpers Sarah and Janet, the Elves and the Merchants camped in the lower yard through the rains and cold weather in tents in the dancing circle.Finally, kaJ and his clan decided to take an expended tour in their loved Ireland.
As for me, the Old Elfin Man McDonnell, I've been in the yard since coming with Elfin Clyde from the Gold fields in 1909. My home stays in its secret place in the orchids in the lower yard. The Trolls also hang around the yard here and there, more or less camping out. The Winter's three huge storms frighted Maude and murmurs held that Harian just might return to his relatives on the Northern shores of Norway.His 14 children refused to go saying they were born here and love the yard. They stay on the deck roof climbing and hiding in the large Redwood trees. Harian's children have a good time wander all over the city. The Pixies in the backyard loved all the rebuilding of paths and patio and played their various tricks on the Grandma Bobbie and her friends helping.The Taryn Faeries had no thoughts of going anywhere, they dance in the circle and stayed in the flowers that bloomed in the gardens. The Lachlan Faeries of the Pond were not concerned when the Pond was repaired. Each rain filled it again, there are now goldfish and plants.
So now Grandma Bobbie has all the houses varnished inside and out and kaJ starts his arguement . . .
