Assistant gardener

By HobbitDave
I've seen some great pictures of Teds that people have uploaded in the last few days.
Here is Freddie, a friend of mine for many years.
He's been helping me plant a small 3 year old Monkey Puzzle tree in a large pot. I think he's looking at the spikey leaves and wondering if it could be a Bear Puzzle tree as well Wink

This one is for my friend Christina, and all other well-loved Ted aficionados.
Freddie's brother Ozzie travelled the Seven Seas some years ago for adventure, and now lives in North Carolina with his owner, Christina, and two cats. He has a great life!

So envious, never had a Teddy and this one looks such a sweetie. Love his outfit too.
10 Nov 2015 1:09PM
Ohhhhh......I feel,guilty now you said that, Lynne. This one was given to me in my 30s so I've had him a long time......Freddie's hat I think is so cool, with holes for his ears, which makes sense.....and he also has a little fishing rod, not in the picture, but he sits by the pond in the summer.
All the best,

The most charming and well-dressed gardener I have ever seen! I hope to get a picture up today of Ozzie to join him - although Ozzie is definitely a house-bear!
10 Nov 2015 3:43PM
Ozzie is a lucky fellow having such a nice home, Christina, and with the weather you've been having, sensible he is a house bear. His brother sends love from here, the other Side of The Pond!
Thanks so much for the much appreciated UA!

'If you go down in the woods today, you'll never believe your eyes' as the Teddy Bears Picnic song goes Barbs! So glad you like him, he says a picnic sounds fun!

Very nicely set and captured, Dave: I could do with his help in our garden right now.....there are so many leaves, all blown in on the recent storm, to clear up.
