A little while ago Humphrey entered a competition to star in a short story... and he won!
|That rabbit. Is there no end to his talent?|
The competition was run by Juliet Wilson aka the Crafty Green Poet - writer, poet, author, recycling-crafter, environmental campaigner and lover of all things rabbit. You can read about the story competition here. And please do take a look around her blog - it is well worth following. She is someone I would like to be more like.
"Sheena smiled as a plump grey-brown rabbit hopped towards her and sniffed her foot... 'Look at those sweet turfts of hair behind the ears!'"And Juliet has even included one of Humphrey's naughtiest habits:
"They sat side by side, thinking about the future and petting Humphrey, who was sitting quietly between them."
"Humphrey settled down and started to chew, then suddenly picked up the water bowl, emptied the contents and bashed the bowl against the balcony railings"- he does exactly this in the evenings, except against the radiator!
|A congratulations kit for the literary star|
Juliet also sent a copy of her poetry book "Unthinkable Skies" - I am looking forward to sitting down with it - and a nice cup of tea - this weekend. This one looks pretty timely...
And incidentally, she is next on the list to host Sylvain the Cottontails Traveling Rabbit, so fingers crossed we'll be hearing a bit more from Juliet very soon.

Thank you so much Juliet!
