    My teddy consists of just his head !!

    He went everywhere with me & his body literally got cuddled away. Mum did attempt to restuff him & reattach his body using an old tie of my dad's but nothing was a match for my cuddles.

    50+ years later the tie is still there & the head is there but with no fur, no ears and the eyes long since replaced with buttons - I don't even remember him having arms and legs LOL - and, if I'm honest, he does have a vaguely mushroomy smell about him. But I don't care - I love him to bits  image

    All this talk of much loved furry toys reminded me of the story /film of the Velveteen Rabbit, I used to read it to my son and he would cry everytime, but always wanted it again.

  • All this talk of teddies is making me think of the film "Ted" lol

    Sandra, you should open a new thread with a suitable title like ' orchid buds dying' and it's more likely to be seen by someone who can help you

    Thats normally because they are too hot or dry, make sure it isnt too warm, and spray the leaves a couple of times a week in winter, rainwater if you can.

    I have always had the answer I wanted and use the site as when needed. I can't say anything bad about it.
