The Lawn Chairs, part 2



Old Possum and Rabbit wrestled the antique sling chairs over to the oak tree, setting them up in the grass outside one of the tea-shop windows.

And because every comfy chair needs space for tea and a snack, Rabbit carried several small folding tables outside as well.

As the first tea-shop-patio customer, Old Possum settled himself into one of the creaky chairs with a contented sigh, and Rabbit brought him a mug of mint tea.

Possum was soon joined by a chattery flock of wrens, who all alighted on a single chair to sing, gossip, and nibble on berry scones.
