Mr. Green and the Magic Bean


Mr. Green
was very keen
to keep everything clean
by any mean.

He was summoned by the queen
who was a bit mean
and always has been
because of her spleen.

Mr. Green
restored the sheen
to the mirror of the queen
so she could preen.

The mean queen 
appreciated hygiene
and gave Mr. Green
a magic bean.

Mr. Green
stopped by the canteen
ate a sardine
and drank some caffeine.

He then left his machine
took the magic bean
and was last seen
leaving this crazy scene.


It is too early to use
this new lap blanket - 
but it is always a good time
for my little nephew Noam.

  1. Noam is precious, and his blanket is very handsome, even if it is a bit to warm for him to use it now :) Thanks for posting, Amalia! xx

  2. Beautiful baby and blanket. Is his hair that red or is it the picture? Red hair pops up in our family often.

    1. The red in his head is contributed by my sister in law, we don't have any in our family :-)

    1. I never used to like green much until recently and was surprised to see how many kinds of green I had in my yarn cupboard considering :-)

  8. I'm sure baby Noam doesn't care about the weather. The colors in the blanket are great. I have so many baby grannies in the works right now.

  9. I think I lost a comment for not being signed in. Mentioned how adorable your nephew is, how fun your rhyme, and how nice the afghan especially with that unexpected color row moving through it.

    1. Thanks Vee. I had that colorful yarn left over from another project and the shop where I've bought it has closed down since so I couldn't restock. I wasn't sure if the little had left would make a statement but it did and taught me that a little can indeed go a long way :-)

  13. Babies always love to wriggle through a blanket don't they? Fingers and toes work themselves through those gaps in the crochet perfectly. What a handsome little boy! The Queen of Mean and Mr. Green ... what happens with the magic bean?!

    1. as the bean is magic
      it would be tragic
      if there's not another chapter
      where we learn what comes after.

He's a great subject, looking right into the camera:) He seems much joy to the family.

  66. Noam is adorable. His eyes melt my heart. Your lap blanket is lovely. Such pretty colors. Mr. Green does have his hands full with the queen, whom I must say seems a bit vain. And, indeed, a pain! :) Hugs.
