Hunca Munca & Brothers~

I was watering The Holler flowers,

daydreaming, not paying attention,

when out of the corner of my eye, I spied,

baby Hunca Munca and her three little brothers,

desperately climbing and clinging to the fountain grass.

I had inadvertently flooded their nest!

Needless to say, I gave watering a rest.

Cheers to you from all the living creatures at The Holler~

Note: For more about Hunca Munca see, “The Classic Tale of Two Bad Mice,” by Beatrix Potter.

    • They were adorable and what amazed me was they looked exactly like the incredibly accurate illustrations done by the artist Charles Santore on the classic series collection of Potter’s books, which was why I included the cover shot. His art is what they looked like. Remarkable. დ

  1. Wildlife and watering don’t always mix. While setting a sprinkler on my garden once the water was initially too high and got a bit in a birdhouse. I turned it down immediately and was careful ever after to be sure it wasn’t aimed where any water would get inside, but that one little bit made the parent birds so mad I got dive bombed by swallows every time I went outside for the whole rest of that summer. At least your little mice can’t retaliate!

  2. I love your reflections using some wonderful pictures. The stories to tell are in themselves so refreshing and unique. Love the simplicity yet extreme elegance. So glad to have come here. Peace and greetings from Sui generis 💛
