Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

It's been lovely weather again at BBHQ, warm and sunny, so there's been lots of outdoor happenings. Nothing exciting, just the usual garden maintenance stuff. 

Here's the flower of the week.

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Flower of The Week at BBHQ - Allium

A gorgeous allium, though we're still waiting for the larger ones to pop!

We'll share more flowers next week.

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

Hammock Wars

Smooch was in the hammock first, but Melvyn wanted it.

Yes, there was a little kerfuffle, and guess who didn't get the hammock?

Melvyn. Oh dear!

But he did get it the next day.

Random News

 THIS IS NOT Parsley

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® THIS IS NOT Parsley

We meant to share this early last month, but we forgot - OOPS! MOL

Anyhoo, we were out in the garden with the P.A. when she said. "Who let Parsley out?"

After a longer glance, the P.A realised, THIS IS NOT Parsley!

So who is this handsome black kitty interloper?

He's been visiting next door for quite a while, and his name is Morty. He has also been captured on our surveillance cameras helping himself to catnip. Can mew believe the nerve of it?

So we've sent him a bill for catnip scoffed illegally! MOL

Last week mew voted for #2, the Purple


  1. Those are such wonderful photos gang and that flower sure is beautiful! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. Aww, Melvyn!
    Morty had better mind his p's and q's!

  3. Your allium is beautiful.

    Melvyn, you are a model, not a fighter and as the youngest, you need to wait your turn. Nice modeling today, too.

    Fudge, I'd want to stay up there too, if I were a cat.

    Mr. Morty, you'd best make friends with this bunch or you might find yourself barred from the catnip patch.

    You are very good sunspot hunters and Fudge, you made me laugh so in my book, you win.

  4. We see a lot of floof in the sun there. And a nippy thief! Neighbor Blackie sprayed my nip too often this winter and it died! I suggested he go git me a new plant. Precious

  6. I love all your kitties. I laughed at Fudge not getting off the roof. They come down when they are ready. Kitties in the neighborhood are always fun to love on too.

    I pick the last one for next week. I know I'll get it right this week.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  7. Melvyn was determined to get in on the act with Melvyn. Looks like I had better vote for #4 for next week! We have just come back from a Med cruise where we had wall to wall sunshine.

  8. Gorgeous kitty pictures in sunshine, every one! And, gorgeous purple flowers everywhere, in the garden, and being worn on Melvyn's bandana!

  9. Nice pose Melvyn. Great photos of all. I love the one of Fudge saying no. XO

  10. Haha. We totally thought that was Parsley! Melvyn, we guess it's drak cherry blossoms next week, eh? XO
