Tiny teddy and the teddy bear sunflower

Though we have had more wind than sunshine this year, we have teddy bear sunflowers in the garden as usual. Tiny teddy feels a bit like Thumbelina (see picture nr 2).

Bear on black, Belgian, Bed & Breakfast barge, in Bruges.

The little Skagen Teddy, while on summer travels, spent a night on a barge on a Belgian canal. The cabin was small and cosy with a water view. Best of all, our bear met a new little teddy friend. A barge bear. They became such good friends that the little barge bear has come home with us and joined the family.

Den sorte barge er en hyggelig hotel og restaurant.

Teddie's chocolate cookies

Certain small people known to Teddy just love these cookies - the recipe is further down ...

cookie cutters - udstikkere


Chocolate teddy biscuits

The original chocolate biscuit recipe is from: Marguerite Patten / Leila Howard. Step-by-step cookery. Paul Hamlyn, London, for the Australian Women's Weekly. 1964 edition.

Ingredients:

210 gr plain flour (I make it with 50% wholemeal)
1 tablespoon cocoa
pinch salt
120 gr butter
120 gr sugar (can also use sugar/stevia mix)
Enough beaten egg to mix

(I make 1½ portion, which is roughly right for 1 whole egg)

Sieve flour, cocoa and salt into a bowl.
Add butter in small pieces and rub into the mix with finger tips until crumbly.
Stir in sugar.
Add enough egg to bind the mixture to a stiff dough.
Knead on table top with sprinkled flour with a little cocoa blended in.
Roll and cut out shapes with cookie cutter.
Place on oven tray with baking paper.
Bake 10-15 mins at 190 C.
Cool on baking-tray then rack.

Some bears climb trees ...

The little Skagen bear who lives in Teddy's house is always out and about. Today he wants to show you a special tree near his house.

Den lille Skagens Bamse vil gerne vise hans
favorit klatre-træ.
Den er som en hemmelig træ-hule.
Can you see from the leaves what sort of tree it is? It is also a super climbing tree with low strong branches. Very, very carefully the little bear and his friends climbed onto a comfortable branch. Even though people walked passed, nobody saw them, as leaves hung down around the whole tree like curtains. A secret tree-cave.
Kan du se hvilken slags træ den er? Se på bladene. Grenene
er lav og stærk og behagelige at sidde på.

Answer: Sycamore/Ahorn

Little Teddy goes for a summer romp in the sunshine ...

... and checks out all the fresh summer greenery. First the yellow Welsh poppies then the sunflower seedlings Big Teddy has planted. They will grow into Teddy Bear sunflowers, Big Teddy grows those every year. Then the little Skagen bear climbs a couple of trees - can you see what the trees are by looking at the leaves? (Answers right at the bottom of the page.)

Teddy dogs!!

In our family not all "teddies" are bears. There are also 3 lovable "teddy" dogs - 2 vintage and 1 modern. Today, the 1st May and sunny, we went out into the garden.

Steiff bulldog (produceret 1927-36, Tyskland) - med gyldenlak.
Jonna (Bukowski, Sverige) - med Lunaria.
Vintage Scotty og de andre - benytter nylig udsat udendørs møbler.
