Everyone knows that a key part of any dragon’s duty is to find the perfect perching spot and dominate the landscape from it!
(Everyone does know that, right?)
Ivan the Wyvern has truly made his dragon-ancestors proud by finding not only a comfortable perch, but one inside an iron tree! The perfect combination of a dragon’s favourite things – treasure and comfortable perches – right there!
The trick, of course, will be to make sure that he doesn’t sneeze fire at the wrong moment and set the candles alight, or this perch won’t be nearly as comfortable!
Sadly, I’m not sure that Ivan’s grasped that imposing perches aren’t supposed to make you look more cute! Ah well, one can only practice one thing at a time, I suppose…
Ivan’s never seen snow before, and he’s been giddy with excitement!
Obviously he had to go out and play in it!
No one told him that his tail would get cold though – well, I tried to tell him that maybe dragons should fly over the snow, but there’s only one way to learn…
Later on, the snow was much higher, but very small dragons must keep warm somehow.
The final verdict from much experientation is that snow is hard to hoard, not to mention cold and wet. The search for a good thing to hoard continues, it seems…
Ivan’s open to suggestions!
Of course, today is St David’s Day, and as a proud dragon, Ivan the Wyvern felt the need to celebrate in style! The kitchens chased him away before he could steal a leek, but after a lot of wading through the snow drifts (hey, they’re much bigger when you’re much smaller!) at last! There was to be found a single, slightly battered daffodil.
Ivan was very pleased with himself. Happy St David’s Day, Everyone!
Well, Ivan will be back soon! If you’re just now meeting him, catch up with his exploits here.
