A Summer Story
The Honeysuckle Cafe
It is summer in the meadow, wildflowers grow and bloom
along the edge of a softly flowing creek. Where
the waters bubble up and sing you will find a giant
honeysuckle bush with the sweetest smelling flowers you will
If you look under the honeysuckle leaves you will be surprised
to find a tidy and pleasant room full of wee little tables made of wooden
stumps with mossy chairs. And if you were lucky enough to do so
you would find the room full of bees, butterflies, and flower fairy folk
sipping honeysuckle tea and laughing away the summer hours.
For this is the Honeysuckle Cafe, run by Mother Summer herself!
One hot summer afternoon, Mia and her grandmother went for
a picnic in that very meadow. Mia brought along a basket of fresh
raspberries she had just picked from the garden. After she helped
Grandmother lay down their blanket in the meadow grasses, Mia
went to the creek to wash the berries.
As she bent down by the water, she heard strange and beautiful
tiny sounds. They were coming from under the honeysuckle bush.
Mia quietly lay down on the ground and peeked under the leaves.
She saw a great surprise, a most amazing sight!
She silently waved to grandma to come! Grandma tiptoed over and
lay down next to Mia. Together they watched! Fairies, butterflies, bees,
even ladybugs were all drinking honeysuckle tea, and laughing. Some
were dancing to the tune from a grasshopper's fiddle.
Grandma whispered, 'I have never in my whole life seen such a wonderful
sight! They watched for a long time, then ever so quietly backed away.
'We should leave a little gift for them, 'said Mia. She looked at her basket
of raspberries and said, 'let's leave these! It does look just like a cafe,
a fairy cafe!' And Mia gently placed the raspberry basket near the opening
under the honeysuckle bush.
They did not know that Mother Summer was hiding nearby and
watching their kindness.
When they returned to their picnic blanket, there, sitting on rose petals were
2 tiny cups of honeysuckle tea from the honeysuckle cafe!
'Mmmmm', they sipped the glorious nectar, and both agreed it was the
sweetest drink they had ever had It tasted of sunshine and flowers, and
happy summer days. 'Thank you, thank you for the tea', they called out
hoping someone could hear them. Mother Summer did hear them, and
was smiling from her hiding place.
They never again saw any sign of the honeysuckle cafe, but every time they went
for a meadow picnic, they stopped to sip from a sweet honeysuckle flower,
and remembered that magical day.
