Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Thanks for joining us again today, and fluff me, we've had a formatting nightmare with today's post, so if it looks a little odd, don't panic, it's the best we could muster under the circumstances! MOL

Anyhoo, it's been a little cooler, but there have been a few sunspots, although rare and rather fleeting, mew'll be able to see who managed to get one further in the post.

We know this photo looks like the one we shared last week, and it is nearly the same, but just look at how the trees have popped in seven days.

We adore this time of year, watching everything green up and colour popping all over the place. It's most excellent for your zen harmonies, so if mew can get outside and go and immerse yourself in a bit of nature, do it, we can't recommend it enough!

Anyhoo, let's look at what's been happening this week at BBHQ.

Parsley was lurking again in his favourite part of the garden, near the raised beds, he loves those tulips, and I must say they are supurr purretty!

Pandora Was Completely Pooped

Pandora was totally zonked after snoopervising the P.A. in the craft room.

Check out her TikTok video, as it explains everything.

But if mew can't watch TikTok, here's the gist of the story:

The P.A. was finishing making a few snuggle mats for a local cat shelter, and it was Pandora's turn to be Chief Quality Control Officer!

There were 15 mats to test, and it was exhausting! MOL

  1. Everything is looking terrific over your way and you kitties always look terrific! I think Parsley won the sunspot battle! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. How about the white cherry blossom next, Melvyn? You all look great -- and we love how the trees are really going full bloom at your place

  3. Spring is springing out all over, that's a good thing.

    How many mats to test for quality? I'm tired just thinking of it.

    A sunspot up a tree! What could be better.

    The roll on the catwalk was fabulous, how about the purple flowers next?

  4. It is hard work testing those mats, but someone has to do it, Pandora. Great roll and stretch on the catwalk, Melvyn. I vote for #2, the purple flowers. With that lovely blue sky Melvyn has to have the best sunspot.

  5. guyz…yur treez and yur fotoz bee awesum….everee onez lookin
    epic lee soooper grate ‼️😺. eye votez for bandana 5 . havin
    sum data izzuez sew hopin tw chex out yur moovee melvyn heer
    in a few 💙💚🐟

  6. Lots of great news and I love the tulips, too. You're all so precious.

    I choose #5 for next week. Many trees look just like that.

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

  7. Love all your springtime pictures! I love the greening time, too. We're having some of those gray days, with a few sunny ones, too. 😎 Cool kitty pics and catwalk! Nice new bandanas! I like #2, with purple flowers, for next week!

  8. That is the most beautiful garden we've ever seen. So serene✨You all look just great as well, kitties. Granny is asking herself, well...actually you, if you stay in the garden and never have an outbreak. She's just curious😸😺Melvin, we always like to see your modelling, and we would like to see you with the butterfly bandana, we're sure it looks great on you too. Double Pawkisses for a Happy Day to all of you🐾😽💞

  9. Numbers 2 and 4, Melvyn, though we mustn't choose two. goodness, you are deserving of your rest! You went through a lot.

  10. You are such a good model Melvyn. I like all the bandanas, but I choose the lilac one. XO

  11. I loved seeing Melvyn in the tree...reminded me of Angel Basil...
    All the May Bandanas are great, I can't pick a fave...LOL!!

    I love the lacey look that trees get just before the leaves are all out. They are like that here, now. If we get any more warm weather they will explode into full leaf. But...right now its just at the freezing point, Brrr!

  12. Melvyn, please show off the flutterby! We have frozen birdie baths this morn but I might have a sun puddle later today. Lynn Is going to try potting tulips fur the patio this fall and hope the skwereels stay out of the pots. I am furry jealous of your sunshine. Precious

  13. Wow your garden looks amazing we love all the greenery and the colours of the flowers. Wonderful photos off you all we do love Smooches sun spot. It's so difficult to choose next week's bandana we think white cherry blossom.xx😽🐈‍⬛🐾
