Easter Teds at The Pres

Compost, Cuttings and a Sun Dance.

An Arbour Tale

Anne was cutting down bushes and pruning shrubs; tearing out roots of nettles and brambles and unwinding ivy off a pear tree!

Teds were anxious to help. They didn’t like to throw away all the red stems of the dogwood, so they found rooting powder, bio-pots and dug compost out of the heap to fill them.

They snipped, dipped and planted other tiny cuttings too.

Lots of them came to help; even Gerrard joined in, glad to be out of the big, plastic bag at last….. more of that, later!

Those Teds who hadn’t helped with the snipping and planting, helped to heave the pots onto a window sill, where they were watered well, and left to root in any sunshine that might come around!

The weather in Normandy was so cold, damp, windy and dull, that Teds hadn’t been able to visit the old apple tree or roll in the soft, green grass, so Anne asked them to do a Sun Dance, for themselves and some of her friends back in cold England and Scotland too.

The dance was fun, especially when Percy jumped into the ring and wore an Easter bonnet!

On Easter Sunday it was brighter, though still bitterly cold. The day did finish, however, with a beautiful sunset, that boded well for better weather the next day.
