Maggie the sheep loves to knit. She enjoys taking her little patch of luscious green grass everywhere. Her favourite flavour of ice cream is Vanilla because when it drips, the ice cream doesn’t get all over her nice white coat. So you may be wondering where Maggie goes to buy wool… well I don’t know but she always has three bags full.

Flight of the BumbleBees June 21, 2012

Ten little bees who love to sing,
Hitting notes so high, you can feel the sting

First, they practice reading music notes
Then they start to warm up their tiny throats

They love the sound of the classic guitar
And dreams one day to bee a buzzing rock star

You see, my ten little bees love to sing
I rather they do that, then give me a mighty sting!

Apples June 14, 2012

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Well, I’ve got six apples….

Six fun facts about apples: *http://www.orangepippin.com/resources/apple-facts/apple-fun-facts
1.  Planting an apple seed from a particular apple will not produce a tree of that same variety. The seed is a cross of the tree the fruit was grown on and the variety that was the cross pollinator.

2.  It takes energy from 50 leaves to produce one apple.

3.  Apples are a member of the rose family.

4.  Archeologists have found evidence that humans have been enjoying apples since at least 6500 B.C.

5.  Fresh apples float because 25% of their volume is air (thank goodness, or none of us would have ever experienced bobbing for apples!).

6. How Steve Jobs came up with the name, Apple… [“On the naming of Apple, he said he was “on one of my fruitarian diets.” He said he had just come back from an apple farm, and thought the name sounded “fun, spirited and not intimidating.”]
