    • They have lovely tunnel networks under the snow, lit with glorious diamond light from above, and all very warm and protected. A very marvellous winter life. I grew wheat. I was going to make a cupcake like the Little Red Hen, but I was going to share it. I planted the wheat, with poppies for colour, and then, just before I was going to scythe it down, the mice came and felled it, like loggers. They cut the stalks at the base, then stacked them in perfect piles, with all the heads in the same direction. The next morning, they had pulled them all down into their underground world. And then when you can see frozen mouth breath around a mouse hole in the winter, now, that’s very fine. Such lovely white mouse breath lace!
