Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Mew may remember last week, that the new shed doors were getting glossed. Well, that was finished on Thursday, and we thought by Sunday Cat Dad would be able to hang them, but sadly the paint was still not hard enough, in other words, it hadn't cured as quick as we thought it would.

So we're leaving them until this weekend when hopefully the paint will be hard enough, as the new hinges have to go on, so there will be quite a bit of handling going off. But we'll let mew know on next week's post what happened! MOL

And we got the first crop of runner beans on Sunday.

The P.A. didn't think they were doing so well because of the weeks of endless rain, as normally we'd get the first crop in July. But the good news, is when she went to check on Sunday morning, she picked this lot, and there's more on the way, so we're quite happy with that. Plus growing them up the garden arches was a great idea, as they are so much easier to see and pick.

They tasted amazing according to the P.A., Cat Dad and our guests on Sunday, 10/10 and no string whatsoever! MOL

Anyhoo, let's look at this week's top headlines.

First up in the news this week

Melvyn Doing A Spot Of Nature Watching

Melvyn adores being in the catservatory and watching everything happening in the garden. He doesn't go out so much now as in all honesty, he's a complete liability. And he wants to run all over the village, which is not a great idea, especially at the moment with the endless tractors and trailers thundering along the main street.

Fudge loves being in the garden, and he's a propurr safari cat, always on the move and looking for the next thing to investigate, so it was pawesome to get a photo of him chilling on the garden bench, with nothing to do and nowhere to go for a at least two minutes! MOL

Mew can check his mini garden safari video below.

We haven't been posting on our social media for the last few weeks. We go through stages where in all honesty we just can't be fluffed with it all. It's just a total time vortex and all anypawdy does is unfollow mew unless mew're actively engaged on the platforms for hours a day, so we're a bit over it right now.

Anyhoo, on Monday we did upload a video of Fudge's Mini Garden safari on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube, so if mew want to take a peek, here are the links:

It's the same video on each site but with different mewsic.

  1. Melvyn, you aren't thinking of chewing on that spider plant, are you?

  2. You look very comfy on that bench Fudge!

  3. We sure hope that paint hardens up soon. Those doors are gonna be epic once they are hung!

    The runner beans look delicious (for humans), and we love that mandala meditating, Smooch. :)

    Yes, social media is so much work. We understand you taking a break from it for a while.


  4. Everyone is looking good! The runner beans look tasty. Our neighbour gave us some but he didn't pick them soon enough and a lot of them were tough and stringy. I picked the best ones out though and they were nice. At the moment our tomatoes are ripening like crazy and every day I am making tomato and basil soup for the winter trying to keep up with them.

  5. Lynn's thinking how yummy the beans must have bee. Me, I'm thinking all the kitties had great
    places fur hangin' out. How come there's no paw prints in the paint?

  6. The doors are fabulous. I hope it's dry by the weekend.

    Fresh beans. Yummy.

    Love your kitties and they pose so very well.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  7. Lovely garden pics and lovely kitties. Enjoyed the video of Fudge strolling through the plants!

  8. Beans look good. Nice to see so many of you enjoying the summer. XO

  9. Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug to you. ♥

  10. thank you, I did get your email about package. Precious

  11. Love watching Fudge in the garden.xx
