Rose has just left Hobbiton.
With piosenniel’s permission, I’ve taken the character she mentioned, Granny Greenhill (the honeymaker her Rhys and Tanni were going to see), and fleshed her out into a character who will come in now and again to visit The Golden Perch.


NAME: Penstemon Greenhill (Nana Penny to her grandchildren; Granny Greenhill to her neighbors; Penny, to her closest friends)

AGE: 92

RACE: Hobbit, mostly Harfoot with a smattering of Fallohide

GENDER: female

WEAPONS: None really. Has a yew wood walking stick she uses to get around and a pair of garden shears in her generous apron pocket with which she cuts flowers and herbs

APPEARANCE: 2’10” tall; light brown skin; bright brown eyes; pleasantly wrinkled face which more often than not is graced with a wide, generous smile. The thick brown curly hair of her younger years has now turned to a snowy mass. Partial to one piece, long-sleeved dresses in deep lavenders and cobalt blues; always wears a plain white pinafore apron with two large pockets on the skirt.

PERSONALITY: She is a happy person; rarely ruffled by circumstance. Sharp-witted; sharp eyed, there are few things that escape her notice. Very social, has a wide circle of acquaintances; loves parties, food, a half pint of dark ale now and then, and a pipeful of Southern Star when she relaxes.

HISTORY: Granny Greenhill was wed to Rowlie Greenhil; she has been a widow these many years. She has five grown sons, all living on little farms near her; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Lives about five or six miles from Stock, southwest along the Stockbrook. Her family has always lived in the area. She lives on a small part of her oldest son’s land in a modest, one roomed house. She has a large garden with vegetables, flowers, and herbs. A number of her great-grandchildren come every day to help their Nana with the weeding, watering, and harvesting. She is a beekeeper and has seven hives. Her red clover honey and apple blossom honey are of some renown in her part of the Shire.
