It’s Coming, Part Three.
Magical Fun Chez The Pads.
A Ted Tale
The arrival of a Giant Pumpkin in the Pads Garden filled Cossette’s furry head with all sorts of ideas for tasty Autumn soups, but Pumpkin had other ideas!
A time of magical visits had begun, at night time as well as during the day.
On the night following Pumpkin’s arrival, Percy flew in on MC1* and landed on top of the Giant Pumpkin. As he looked around, everything was bathed in a golden glow, but this orangey effect was somehow warm and soft, unlike that of the sinister Orange Sky that had preceded it a few days before. Following Percy, other Teds came along to visit their Garden and meet the Giant Pumpkin.

Tiny Tigger Ted chatted to an old Pumpkin friend from years ago, whilst Lady Ted stared, mesmerised by its glowing eyes. Kumba David had his camera ready to snap the fun.
Tom, Dick, Harriet and Jonah Teds popped in that same night with Percy, and Tom chatted with Papier-mâché Ted, sitting next to a little pumpkin, who complained that no one had painted any colours on him yet. Tom promised that he would see what he could do.
There was definitely a growing number of little Pumpkins around the dark garden. Some lit up and glowed with delight when Teds chatted with them.
As the day dawned other Teds awoke and came to the Pads Garden to see what was happening. Tangerine Ted was ecstatic : “Giant Pumpkin matches my colour!” he said, and promptly climbed on top of it and glowed.
During the day Teds continued to flock to the Garden. Pammee, a Lemur Ted, came and immediately wanted to sit on top of Pumpkin too …..
….. so she did!
Both TT and Pammee were having a lovely time in the garden. Some of the Portuguese Teds came along with their guitars and strummed quietly in corners to a growing crowd of admiring friends who hummed along with them, or sang if they knew the words.
Afternoon turned to evening and a party of happy Teds sat around and sang with the guitar players in the soft light of little glowing pumpkins .
They sat and sang from one side of the garden, to another, around the Giant Pumpkin, until gradually they all fell asleep and only the Pumpkins were left awake, softly glowing in the dark of the night.
