Pawesome Wednesday Greetings Furriends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up!

Well all we can say it is GREAT to be back on The Pet Parade, guys we've missed mew and we've missed our pawesome host Dash Kitten and co-host Barking from the Bayou.

Is there anything exciting that we've missed? Does anyone have any big news we need to catch up on?  as it's going to take us some time to get back up to full speed.  The P.A. is much better, she's still going fur physio and doing effurything to heal as fast as pawsible, though she still can't believe that she's struggling and so tired aftur 2 months, but so it goes - that'll teach her to fall through a ceiling!

In other news here at BBHQ, we loved taking part in Crafting For Your Shelters Week, and hope that we inspired many of mew to make something fur your local shelter, plus we've got some more supurr crafting/upcycling/recycling idea's coming soon, so keep and eye out fur those.

 In other, other news, Smooch has a new job, he's selling flowers, how cute?

And finally today...

Now mew know we love our garden here at BBHQ, though obviously the P.A has been unable to do anything in the garden since her accident, but luckily this year it seems to have taken care of itself, which is quite miraculous! MOL  [Although we do have rather a large nettle patch to deal with in one area, but that can wait].

Now fur years we tried to grow echinacea; the P.A tried in several different borders around the garden without success.  Finally she decided to plant a couple in the raised beds in the courtyard and this year they've been fabulous.

And the bees love them...

Aren't they amazing...

We don't use any chemicals, weed killers or anything 'nasty' in our garden, as we like the bees to just bee fabulous without exposing them to a cocktail of poisons... and they need all the help they can get. 

We've also noticed several new types of butterfly in the last couple of weeks too, although we've not managed to get any photo's but we'll try to before the summer is offur.

and if mew're missing our colouring posts, get our free colouring books below:

We'll be back on Friday with another Fluffer post, so we do hope mew can join us then and don't furget to hop along on the Pet Parade below.

  1. I'm glad your P.A. is feeling better. The garden is amazing. Smooch, you crack me up selling flowers. :)

  2. How's the flower selling going, Smooch? I'm guessing very well.

    Cool that you don't do chemicals in your garden. We don't either.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  3. Bees and butterflies, oh my! Hope your P.A. is getting better.

  4. We've very happy your P.A. is on the mend, we've been wondering how she was doing!

  5. Smooch, your echinacea looks AMAZIN'. And look at all those bees!!! I have to admit, my nip plants are attractin' bees, too. Perhaps you can advise me on this. With my nip plants, I've become a bit of gentlecat farmer. You think I should be a gentlecat bee keeper, too? purrs

  6. I am glad the PA is getting better.
    The flowers look lovely. Mine haven't done so well this year, but I had a bumper crop of strawberries instead.

  7. That's for sharing the beautiful photos of the flowers. Plus the great close up photos of the wonderful bee. Hope you're having a fantastic day so far.

  8. Your coneflowers are so pretty! Glad da PA are getting better.

  9. We're glad the P.A. is on the mend, and that the garden is taking care of itself (and the bees)! Smooch, we would totally buy some blooms from you!

  10. Glad the PA is getting better. Those flowers are very nice. My Mum has been busy in the garden lately. We've noticed lots of butterflies around as well :)

  11. You bee is totally amazing. I love it to bits!!!

  12. Lovely Echinacea! We love those conlowers, too...and yup, so do the bees. Our bug/disease control is petcretary's fingers and scissors. Cut off the offending part of plant, or pick off the bugs and feed them to the winged creatures...

    Glad that your PA is doing so much better! Tell her not to try any more circus acts:)
