Curiouser And Curiouser

I went outside to water the garden, and under my rose bush was a strange fellow carrying a card.

I heard a noise and turned around.  When I turned back he was gone, but the invitation was still in my rose bush!  I looked at it puzzled...cordially uninvited?  Non soiree?  Kindly do not RSVP?  How strange!

I found a hat on my holly bush.  A little mouse told me I would be needing it.  I didn't know mice could talk!

As I put the hat on the mouse ran into the bush and vanished.  I peered in to see where he had gone.  Is that a hole?

I must have leaned over too far and got dizzy, everything began to swim before my eyes!

I must have fainted, but I had the strangest dream.  I dreamt I was at an utterly mad tea party!

At the head of the table sat the strange chap in the hat!

There were bears and clowns...

They had lovely treats and were happy to share!

There was even an elephant in the sugar bowl!

 They told me to stay a while and have some tea!
Is that a flamingo?

Talk about a tempest in a tea pot!

I didn't know koi drank tea...

Or that starfish used knives and forks!  They told me they were celebrating their unbirthdays.  It was very strange, but yet...I had a good time with these odd little creatures.  They assured me they did it everyday and I was welcome to return any time!

When I came to, I was back in my own little garden.  It was all a dream...wasn't it?  Hey there is a mouse on my fence...he looks oddly familiar!


Thank you to A Fanciful Twist for hosting A Mad Tea Party, and thank you for taking time to visit!
Have a frabjous day! Hugs, K. <3

Well with this fine company it was very very difficult for me to tear myself away. I especially fell in love with the wee elephant in a teacup, or was it a teapot. I've drunk so much tea today my head can't think straight. Maybe it's the sugar rush. Anyway loved your party. Thanks for having me. Creative hugs to you from Norma
