Jyra and her fairy godmothers ...

Jyra is absolutely adored by her friends in the little gang on Friday and it's easy to see why.

She is beautifully open faced and wide eyed with us all, quirky, clever, funny, determined and independent and loves being along at the farm.

Not only do these things endear her to the other children she is also really, really interested in each one of them.

She finds them all very fascinating and worth watching and paying lots of attention too .. .. ..soaking up almost everything they say and do.

Today, Dawn, Daisy and George were delighted to see her and Dawn shared that she thought it would be good for there to be lots of love for Jyra and announce she'd be her Fairy godmother. 

Jyra sat on my knee like a delighted little princess hearing this news, even though I'm sure she had no idea what it meant

Daisy quickly said, 'I'm her Fairy godmother too.'

George said, 'I'm not', and after some quiet consideration announced, 'I'm her Tiger.'

The mood was set for a lovely morning together, we watered plants, played in the long grass, picnicked in the Witches Garden, played in the sand and splashed in the water in the horses trough to cool down and bare the heat.

Have a look at a moment down in the vege garden and another one of Jyra, 'self-styling' ..

Some grass for you ..

I'm loving being here right now ..

Totally taking in Daisy's every move ...

Hey you guys, I'm here too and watching you ...

Still more joy abounds ..

Who loves who the most in this little duo ..?

Now, here we have Jyra, little woman of great style ..

Jyra trying Daisy's headband on .. hm.m.m not such a good fit here ..

.. there's got to be a better way ..

Ah, I think that's more like it for a girl of style like me ..
