Overview


In the Garden with the Totterings brings together a superb collection of Annie Tempest's 'Tottering-by-Gently' cartoons around the theme of gardening, which encompasses inter-generational tensions, the differing perspectives of men and women and more.

Tottering-by-Gently is a village in the fictional county of North Pimmshire, where Lord and Lady Tottering reside in the fading grandeur of their ancestral home, Tottering Hall. Annie Tempest's cartoons are based on Lord and Lady Tottering (Dicky and Daffy) and their extended family. Her now international following proves that she touches a note of universal truth in her exquisitely detailed and beautifully executed cartoons as she gently laughs with us at the stuff of life.
