When Alfred’s mom told him to be watchful and keep his ears to the ground, legend has it Alfred’s ears dropped a few notches. He says that he could fix them if he wanted to, as his teeth are all made of gold. But if he sold his teeth to fix his ears, he wouldn’t have any teeth.
Alex likes to taste things. He thinks your dish needs some chives or celery, which is good because that is that he has growing for hair. He also likes to lick the counter top, the cat and your dishes if you let him.
Fred can smell things a mile away, which is why he likes to keep nice-smelling things for hair, like Chives and Golden Lemon Thyme. Despite the raised eyebrow, Fred is friendly sort of fella and is always ready to make anyone smile who looks at him.
Henry is a calm, peaceful and tranquil soul. His smile extends all the way up, and his cheeks round all the way down. He has succulents for hair in a mix of colours when in bloom, that are hardy and water wise.
Sam has been waiting for someone to take him home, so that they can use his chives and give them a much needed haircut in the process. He quite likes the idea of a possible mohawk haircut. He also has wonderful tumbly thyme on the one side, to add a bit of softness to his generous nature.
He would love nothing better than to sit on someone’s kitchen window and watch them make delicious meals. But be careful – if you leave any cookies or left-overs out with Sam about, they might be gone by the morning.
What I love about Lizzie is her smirk. You can just tell that this beastie is up to something. She has a half smile suggesting that what she’s up to something a little of the sinister nature. I gave her a few freckles and warts, as her character has been on a few adventures in her life and has seen things.
Her choice of hair is a tumble of thyme that will over-flow and hang in her eyes if looked after. She would make a wonderful addition to any kitchen window. Thyme loves to be pinched for adding flavors to your dishes.
