Bearies at the bottom of our garden!

Teddy bears are not like ethereal fairies. Teddy bears are very substantial creatures, not generally elusive or shy, but very affectionate, and usually helpful to have around. As far as I know we don't have any fairies at the bottom of our garden, but today a little group of my 'bearies' decided to be helpful by doing some gardening, and this required an expedition to the bottom of our garden.

O'Shaughnessy, the leader of the expedition, headed off, closely followed by Sandi, a newly completed teddy bear who has just joined the hug, and Burt, a mature gentleman who thought it wise to go along, to make sure everything was done decently and in order.

Sandi, young and enthusiastic, was keen to learn the art of gardening - that is until O'Shaughnessy showed her the patch of overgrown garden that needed weeding and digging over. She looked at the daunting task and almost turned back.

However, O'Shaughnessy, a patient teacher, demonstrated step by step how it was done,

and soon they were both hard at work,

with Burt looking on proudly at their efforts.

They returned from the bottom of the garden very pleased with themselves, and very hungry! They were certainly ready for their tea and toast - with peanut butter and honey, of course!

A warm welcome to Mariya (hope your name is spelled correctly) from Russia, who joined us today for the first time.


  1. I'm sure all of the bears will need their tootsies washed well tonight.

  2. I only wish I could get my bears interested in doing yard work. It's a bit early in the year for us to be working in the garden so I'll give it some thought and I might figure out a way to get them interested.

  3. Hi Kay and Maddyrose. It was providential that the bears did their gardening in the morning - late afternoon brought torrential rain and hail! I'm so glad they came inside before the weather changed. And yes, Kay, when I tried to clean up their feet, I discovered that bears are ticklish!
