The story of Noah's Ark has been told in many lands, in many ways, by many different people and survives to this day. Whether you view it as a true event, a multitude of mini-events over time, pure myth or an allegory ... it is a fascinating tale, with each version having its own twists and turns. And what child doesn't thrill at playing with cute little "mom and dad" animals, their very own toy boat complete with a gangplank, to board all those little animals?
Here we see even Enid Blyton's "Noddy" and "Big Ears" attempting to get all the little animal residents of Toyland aboard their toy Ark. The mischievous monkeys are, as usual, giving Noddy a hard time and of course, his friend, the wise old Brownie Big Ears, is playing the part of Noah.
I think I'll leave this picture out for the fairies to find - if this rain keeps up in Meadow Sweet Grove, they may want to consider building one of these ... as a precautionary measure!
