~~~ A peek into the life of Yusra Greenflower ~~~

Dear Brambleburians / hobbits,

I am writing this letter to let my (old) friends know how I am doing and to give other hobbits (new friends soon?) a peek into my life.

I am Yusra Greenflower, from the Greenfields. My mother left me a few days after my birth. My father died when I was one year old. I have got one older sister, Yllisa Noakes - Greenflower. She is married to Loimos Noakes. Yllisa and I did not grow up together. She did try to take care of me for a while but sadly I was too little to remember anything of that. 

When I was 1,5 years old I got to live with a nice lady (not the bad evil one in Yllisa's story, she luckly sold me..) She had her own farm in Oatbarton and she was the best cook I have ever met. She is the reason I love farming and cooking, something I do very often. Most of my pies go to Yllisa nowadays. 

I did not know I had a sister untill I started to travel in the Shire and around Michel Delving. There were some hobbits in Michel Delving who kept saying that I looked a lot like a lass they knew. 

Thats when I met my big sister Yllisa. She could answer a lot of questions I had. Ofcourse I was really happy with finding her, but it also confused me and I needed time to let all this information about my past sink and give it a space. 

I went back to Oatbarton and tried to visit Yllisa often. This was not always possible because I had to stay at the farm of my 'mother'. When I could not go to Yllisa's wedding because of the farm I decided it was enough, I had to move to the Shire to get to know my sister and her husband better, and maybe.. even furture babies?

I packed my belongings, hired a lad for the farm and left to go to the Shire for good. 
I stayed in Waymeet for a while. But I did not really feel safe with a 'Stepwise lad that likes to sneak around in your bags' living that close to me. 

I slept under the mushroom tent in the yard of People of the Shire for a while. It was a nice place to sleep in the summer, and always something to eat and cook with! But its getting colder and I would like a place of my own. 

Now Yllisa offered me to take over her lovely house in Bramblebury. Hooray! She says she is not there often anymore, because she has a house together with Loimos in Oldfurlong. 

This will hopefully be a new start of a stable life. If you need some cooking or farming done, or you just want to chat.. feel free to visit me at 2 Myrtle Court - Bramblebury. This week I will be busy to redecorate the house. Feel free to come help or have a nice chat, there is always a pie or two in my bag! 

Greetings, Yusra Greenflower.
