Sambucus has been entertaining the children again with his outrageous prophecies.
He likes to make most of them up, just for the reaction he gets.
As with most elderly wizards, he loves to tease the young, after all, where's the fun in being old if you can't enjoy yourself, eh?
This makes him a popular wizard with the children of the village, who simply adore him.
Sambucus is rather partial to sponge cake, any flavour, as it's the texture he likes most of all.
He is also fond of trifle.
He is hoping to receive both at his birthday party next week.
He predicts it will be violet cake!
Sambucus Spearwort stands at around 5 1/2 inches to the top of his head- he does stoop a little but he is an elderly gentleman, and around 6 1/2 inches to the top of his wizard's hat.

Wizard Sambucus is now living happily, with his friend Polemonium in West Glamorgan, Wales, where they own a Wizard Book Store :o)
