Noah isn't amused that I'm writing about Bodnant garden instead of showing his garden to you. However, I don't want to annoy him, so therefore let's have a break from Bodnant, so that he can show you around in his own kingdom.
Okay, dann übernehme ich also mal. Frau Gwundergarten füttert die Vögel. Aber die falschen, wenn ihr mich fragt. Ich meine, müssen es ausgerechnet Elstern sein? Die sind gross, machen viel Krach und sind schlecht zu fressen. Meisen mag ich lieber und Rotkehlchen schmecken auch ganz lecker ...
Die Vögel sind nicht für dich zum Fressen da, Noah, sondern zum Fressen. Hach, was rede ich da?
So, it's now me, Noah, who is reporting to you. Mrs Gwundergarten is feeding the birds, but the wrong ones if you ask me. I don't like magpies, they are rather loud, disturbing and nasty to eat. I like robins and titmice, they are very delicious, indeed….
Noah, the birds are not meant for your tummy. They are our guests.
Das hier ist mein Waldgarten. Ich finde es cool, dass Frau Gwundergarten das Laub jetzt liegen lässt. Da raschelt es immer so toll.
This is my woodland garden. It's great, that finally Mrs Gwundergarten does leave the leaves till spring. It rustles so excitingly.
(Noah, du alter Schleimer)
As a Gentleman tomcat, I of course do know what women like: Here's a November rose, just for you, darling.
(Noah, you old sweet talker)
(Und auch sonst ganz anders)
Love it, when the sun shines through the fern. Reminds me to my fur, this one is just more yellow than mine.
(and completely different if you ask me, what he doesn't)
Das ist mein Lieblingsbaum. Ich muss immer überprüfen, ob er noch gerade steht. Yep, passt noch.
This is my favorite tree. I have to check every day that it grows straight up into the sky. Yes, it's still okay.
That's a hedgehog's home. He even took moss and leaves inside to decorate it.
And there is another one for another hedgehog. I really have to watch carefully over Mrs Gwundergarten, else she invites everybody into my garden. Well, as long as it is no fox, who catches all my mice, it's okay at the moment.
It's really a hard life in this garden, that's for sure. I have to take care that everybody follows the rules… my rules of course. The other day a tomcat entered my garden. He tried to camouflage as a bird, but I of course unmasked him quickly.
I kicked his ass quickly out of the garden. It's my garden, my mice, my birds, my Mrs Gwundergarten, all mine.
Would you like a rose? No?
Okay, maybe a pansy?
I quite love shadow games in my garden. It looks like out of a fairy tale book.
Have you noticed how many shoes humans use? It's much easier with velvet paws like mine, but humans don't understand this.
Schöner sind sie auch noch, findet ihr nicht?
They even look nicer, don't you think so?
That's it... now Mrs Gwundergarten can show you this other garden, who of course can't keep up with mine.
You're still here? Oh come on, leave me alone, I need my beauty sleep.
Sorry about that. Noah has a bit a nasty slang, but he's really a darling especially when he's sleeping. Psst… love him to bits.
Have a nice weekend.
En liebe Gruess / Take care
Frau Gwundergarten und Herr Schiefschnute Noah
