The Fairy Diary Day 189 #TFDbyRWOz2

This morning Noralei and I passed out through the gates of the castle to check the approaches. We found a patch of the plants – some in bloom (ugly) – others just sprouted – and a good many gone to seed. We collected their reddish seeds and took them to Merlin. 

The wizard set his major domo the task of clearing the outside approaches of all these plants he can find. Dunfallon will accompany the owl and torch them.

Merlin wants the enemy totally in the dark as to our doings here. 

As Merlin examined the seeds, Rumble, Noralei and I looked on. Imagine our shock when he removed the husk on the first one and all its neighbors’ husks opened also – revealing unblinking eyes staring back at us. 

Merlin scooped all but the first one into a stone jar and sealed it shut – remarking, “I see that I have more work to do.”
