Roaming the high hills above Hazel Village, our friend built herself a nest of juniper branches. “Juniper for my nest,” she said, “and Juniper for my name.”
In the morning, her nest smelled piney and sweet. She picked a basket of blueberries for her breakfast.
Mountain birds came to enjoy the blueberries too. And butterflies enjoyed the blueberry blossoms.
That evening as Juniper watched butterflies in the meadow, a scary thunder storm blew through the valley.
The next morning, Juniper came upon Annicke Mouse, checking on her trail trinkets after the storm. Annicke shared her picnic of bread and cheese, but Juniper ate only the bread because she is a vegan.
Annicke said, “If you want to get out of the thunderstorms, you can stay with us in Hazel Village.”
Juniper Wolf said she would be delighted, and the gentle friends hiked downhill. Many birds and butterflies came with them.
Juniper Wolf will be joining the Village on Monday, July 20 at 1 PM Eastern!
