A reindeer is not just for Christmas


Mr Reindeer thinks he's a Christmas toy - but I think he's fun all-year round and I decided this week that it was my responsibility to expand his horizons and show him a bit about the world outside.

So, Mr Reindeer, this is our garden....Over there is the pear tree starting to blossom and the bird table. We have to keep the squirrels away - if we can - so the nice birds can have their breakfast in peace.


Now, let me take you for a little gallop....You can see that some strands of green grass are trying to fight their way through the VERY SMALL (tiny, I would say) bare patch I caused in the lawn this winter.


Did you see the daffodils? Are you paying attention, Mr Reindeer?



That's enough lessons for one day. Being a teacher is tiring.

I agree, Mr. Reindeer is a year-round toy. You did a very good job showing him around. How neat that you have a pear tree in your yard!

Your pal, PIp

Does your reindeer come with a Santa and sleigh to deliver presents for Christmas in the Spring?

Hope you can get the message out, that a reindeer isn't just for Christmas:)

That's nice of you to take Mr Reindeer for a walk in the garden and show him that spring is as lovely as winter (and sometimes even more).

If Lady had some greyhound in her, maybe she could do a better job helping our birds to eat in peace! She tries, but... :)

No wonder you're both tired. That's a lot for a reindeer to take in. You're a great tour guide, Winnie.

You did a super terrific job of teaching Mr. Reindeer all abouts the big, wide world, Winnie! Now take a little nap. You deserves it!

Hello, Winnie! You do have a grand yard and what reindeer wouldn't be thrilled to learn about it?
