"Novel" The Cottage Owl

Hellooooo my Darlin Dears, Gnomes, Fellow Bear Rabbits & other meadow creatures:)

This Lovely tuesday, when I was meandering over to Gnome Granary to see how the tiny greenhouses and strawberries were doing that live in It's windows, I heard quite a flutter coming from inside....

"What may it be?" I said to myself....

"Is it a rouge Racoon or one of my many farm animals who have become stuck in the cottage? Is it a bear?"

Once I opened wide the dutch doors, to my absolute delight and surprise, I met Novel:)

She was plumb tired I believe....In all of my years of knowing and loving the country, I have never seen a barn owl this close:)

Also, she was still very young.... she was more confused than scared at the sight of me:) Without hesitation, I walked up to her and picked her up, while clasping her wings gingerly...

I first placed her on the bed to make sure she was not hurt, and then fed her some water....I had no mice to give her, and I assume if I would have tried to feed her one of the lovely mice that makes my dresses, they would have rioted, and I would no longer have dresses that twirl at my disposal:)

Novel layed very still on the bed and just stared up at me, blinking her eyes slowly ever so often.....I stretched myself out next to her and tried to ask her "Why are you here?...are you trying to tell me something?"

She hoped up and trotted around on the bed for a bit, and then flew around the room, to again land on the cottage bed:)

Upon deciding that she was healthy and could fly, I bundled her up in my flannel camping jacket and released her into the air just outside of the cottage...

Novel flew around and then swooped back to land on my feet....just crazy!!! I had to keep on reminding myself that I was awake...very awake and alive:)

This brings me to two questions?

A: What does this all mean?

B: What type of meadow creature are you?

after serious and lovely talks with another artist by the name of Sweet Basil, we have decided that we are both Bear Rabbits:)

So....what type and meadow creature are you my loves?:)

....& why did Novel love me so?

This is SO cute and SO inspiring! It must mean something, you just don't find an owl like that everyday. What it means I have no idea, but it's so beautiful!!
