Paddington in the Garden
Publication Date: 13 October 2008
When Paddington starts to make a list of all the nice things he can think of about being a bear and living with the Browns he is sure to include 'the garden'.
Paddington feels very lucky to have such a nice garden, especially as he has his own little patch in it, to keep him out of mischief! For Paddington, one of the nicest things about being a bear and living with the Brown family is being able to share their lovely garden.
But gardens don't just happen, and the one at number thirty-two Windsor Gardens keeps the whole family busy, so Paddington is only too pleased to lend a paw when they give him a chance. He may not have 'green fingers', but the fact that paws and marmalade are never far apart leads to some unexpectedly colourful results during National Garden Week!
