Blueberry Pie in the Heather Bush

Gretta and Bebe decided they best get on their way. Gretta's tummy was grumbling and mumbling and she felt a sleepy time coming on. She gave a big yawn as the two friends approached the prettiest forest of heather. Bebe had heard of Heather Bush Hideout that was tucked in the Heather forest. Gretta could not believe her eyes. She blinked and winked and rubbed her eyes...look at the purple heather! We must be getting close to Nowhere. The purple heather is a sure sign! The two friends scrambled under the heather and skipped through the forest. Gretta did her famous roll down the hill yelling yipppeeee as she tumbled and landed near a blueberry bush. Bebe decided to follow as they rolled and played and chased each other in the forest. Life was so fun on the road to Nowhere!
Oh look! Gretta from Gothere got on her tippie toes and peeked into the bramble berry hedge. Three little birds nests were nestled together as happy as can be. Bebe spotted the colored eggs first...my goodness, what a magical hideout this is!

The two crossed over the stream. Little blue and purple fish were swimming to their hearts content. Then they saw the sign...it was at the fork in the road. A very strong scent of blueberries was in the air. Gretta could hardly stand it. We must follow our nose! Should we go to Oz? To Here? To Fairyland? I see it cried Bebe...NOWHERE...turn right Gretta past that rock with moss on it...NOWHERE is this way!

Blueberry pie! I smell it cried Gretta! I smell pie! Off to NOWHERE they traveled following their nose, right to the bakery of BLUEBERRY BARB'S. Everything is coming up purple....they scurried over to the bakery and ordered Blueberry pie and blueberry tea for two!
Gee wiz, said Gretta. Mozes and Raccoon would love this place. I hope they are not too far behind!
Gretta smacked her lips as Bebe tipped her napkin to her lips and rubbed her tummy. I'm good to go Gretta...lets GO!

Have you ever seen such a beautiful Heather forest? Only blueberry pie would keep Bebe from taking the road to OZ. Blueberry Barbs! This must be the bakery from heaven. Gretta is such a good friend to take Bebe along.
Thank you dear Gretta!

Oh my gosh...
What a beautiful write this is Ms Jackie. I love it. That heather is exquisite and can you imagine seeing it in person. What a field of color it would be. Breathtaking for sure.

Your little characters are just precious. I can see them rolling and tumbling and giggling and laughing. Oh how sweet.

Blueberry pie? Yummy and that label looks pretty darn cute on the pie.

Thank you for sharing with me today. I so love it when you do.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Is this a trick question? It's a trick right?
