Today my friends surprised me! After school they led me up the hill back behind my house. And there for my eyes to see was beautiful Asmina the Paw Paw tree with pretty pink hearts made from ice hanging from her branches. My forest friends all screamed at once Happy Valentine’s Day Beatrice! I didn’t want to ruin their surprise and tell them that Valentine’s Day is on February 14th not today. I think they want Asimina to look pretty all winter with the pink ice hearts.
My forest friends made the cute hearts by freezing water and cherry juice (from a Wisconsin orchard) in old, tin butter molds shaped like hearts they got from Virgina’s Attic an antique store owned by three wonderful woodchucks.
When it is night time, my friend Jazzbat and his family fly through the sky searching for insects to eat. If I finish my homework early, my mom and dad let me go outside at night and visit Jazzbat. He wears a black beret when I see him hanging from one of Asmina’s branches. Jazzbat of course listens to jazz music so my mom and dad bought some old jazz records from the antique store for me to give as a present.
Jazzbat is a Pipistrelle, more information about him and his family:
