Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Well, it's been a bit of a mixed bag weather-wise the last few days, with more rain and clouds than sun.

So there was no outdoor painting or much gardening happening at all, but the P.A. will get to it in due course, on the next sunny weekend.

And the Flower of the Week is a beautiful delphinium—just look at that pawesome shade of blue!

 The Catnip Seeds Have Been Planted

Oh, we forgot to mention a couple of weeks ago that we planted this year's catnip seeds. Some are just starting to peek out of the top of the soil, so we'll share their progress next week.

And yes, we know we're a little late planting, but other stuff got in the way.

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

It was quite nice late on Caturday afternoon, so Fudge found himself a nice little sneaky hotspot on the deck.

Which one should he model next?


Ahem, if mew missed Amber's post on Friday, mew will know that Melvyn has been banned from modelling for the month of June. Instead, Amber has imposed many library duties to keep him occupied.

He was quite upset when he found out last night that there were no new bandanas, and that Amber has put her paw down and is exerting her authority for his insolent behaviour.

Hopefully, he'll learn his lesson and be back on the catwalk in July with a brand-new collection.

  2. Smooch may have won the sun spot contest with his very unique pose! We hope your library duties go okay, Melvyn. And bring on the nip plants! XO

  3. Your delphiniums are a delight! I'm glad the catnip has sprouted.

    Fudge is very clever.

    Pandora has a great look-out spot.

    Great modeling, Melvyn, I'm going to miss seeing you next month and hope all goes well so you're back in July.

    That's some great sunpuddle catching.

  4. That delphinium is a beautiful colour.

  5. Itchy finger, I didn't finish my comment! Everyone looks very comfortable relaxing in their favourite places. You will have to be on your best behaviour for the next month, Melvyn.
    The weather is forecast to improve here from Friday, but still with a cold northerly wind.

  7. Thank goodness fur some sun. I have had some but the rains and noisy stuff with it has been a bother. Fudge, you almost fooled us in the one of you at the chair with the plants!

  8. You furries are just so adorable!
    Sorry, Melvyn, but you'll enjoy your time with your library chores.

  9. I love those blue flowers. Such a vivid color.

    Your kitties are so precious.

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

  10. Looking good Melvyn. Sorry you don't get any new bandanas, but Amber had to do something to get you under control. XO

  11. Wow, beautiful delphinium! Ha, I saw Amber in Smooch's video, ambling by with an air of indifference! I bet she thinks library duties will show Melvyn ... Marvelous sunspots, all!

  12. Oh, Melvyn...we missed that you were naught to Amber?

    Those were all good spots to catch the rays, but we think the sun must have moved after you settled does that to us, too...silly sun!
