The tulips are sprouting …

… and the robin has been singing all day …

……………………………………………………………………

Indoors, Crocus budgie is celebrating another photo competition award …

…‘Best Feathered Friend’ in aid of MacMillan Support

and in the same photo show, my friend’s cat Jasper won 6th place out of 124 entries in the Head Study class.

……………………………………………………………………..

Back outdoors, the Armandii is in bloom …

… and Conker, having watched too many Money Supermarket TV ads, decided to do a photo shoot for a charity Caption Competition …

… and won first prize with this …


……………………………………………………………………..

Truffle says he hasn’t won any rosettes lately…

… but he is posing with Tigger and the White Rabbit …

… to wish you all a wonderful Easter.

… Happy holidays x x x

Happy Easter Terra, you now have me singing that darned advert!!!
I like Conkers version best and much prefer seeing him in his blue shorts with his trolley full of treats to the silly man on the telly, certainly far better looking and therefore more appealing, well done to Crocus and Jasper for their well deserved awards and not forgetting Truffle who gets my award for "Best Easter Bonnet" and pose.
Lovely photo's, no tulips out here yet but lots of buds filling out so won't be long, yours look smashing with the heathers and really stand out amidst the gravel, enjoy the rest of the weekend Terra.x

It has been a warm and sunny day here and it makes such a difference.

Happy Easter TT love your cheery Easter blog, your tulips and garden are looking superb, Conker's great ad picture is so funny and better than the one on TV! well done to Crocus and Jasper on their awards - well deserved, Truffle is looking as adorable as ever - love his Easter bonnet with the chick upon it - the best bonnet in the Easter parade :o)

I hope your having a nice Easter just like all your friends, Mr Robin, Jasper, Conker, Truffle and his friends Tigger, & White Rabbit.

Hope you had a lovely Easter Terra. Your blog has made me smile today. Conker deserved that win and Truffle looks very cute.

Lovely skittish picture TT. No wonder you won first prize. At least Conker's blue bottom is more elegant than the fellow's in that advert! Truffle looks very jaunty in his Easter Bonnet. Made me smile for a while.

Thanks everyone ...
I hope you enjoyed your gardens over Easter.
I've told Conker you like his supermarket strut ;o)

Happy Easter TT. A super blog as per usual.

Happy Easter TT ~ Well done and a message to Conker, Truffle & Crocus we so Loveyouall.com ...! lol ;o)

6 Apr, 2015

 

Hi TT I've just come back onto your blog to admire Crocus... Would he be the fab-u-lous Budgie in the Cat and the Budgie advert? If he isn't, he's got a famous double...;o) and I do so love the ad...! :o))))

Belated Easter Wishes Terra ! I just loved the blog especially Conker with the trolley ! Although, I must say, the advert on tv really annoys me ! Tigger looks great too !

9 Apr, 2015

 

Fabulous photos and great humour as usual Terra. Belated "Happy Easter" from me and my OH, Wendy.

Thanks to all for your kind words and 'likes'. It's a busy time of year, isn't it ... so much to do in the garden and lovely to be out there amongst the spring flowers.

Crocus budgie is still happy to be indoors, and enjoying lots of TV, including the 'strutting supermarket' ads ... ;o)

WONDERFUL EVER :-))) I LOVE IT !!

14 Apr, 2015

 

Thanks Junna ...
this is a wonderful time of year, isn't it !

Terra, ever thought of entering Conker and Truffles in for "Britains Got Talent". Simon Cowell would absolutely love them.
I meant to comment earlier, how clever it is getting them to pose, they seem naturals at it ... and if I'm honest they are probably looking forward to your next blog, just so they can dress up .... lol.

PS Do the photography sessions take long, or do they normally get it right "first take"? 📷 👍

15 Apr, 2015

 

IT IS ! , Terra, Hello Alan :-))

15 Apr, 2015

 

Hi Junna <];~))

15 Apr, 2015

 

Thanks Alan ... Conker certainly gets it right first take...

When I had the idea of photographing him in shorts with his trolley, for the caption competition, I had to meet a deadline date .. but it was a cold day and I was still unwell with the virus.

So I just stood Conker in the shorts with the trolley and said 'push' and... job done ... but Conker would have been happy to push his trolley all around the garden !

Truffle often gets very excited when we first start a photo session, and then settles. Both dogs certainly want to be the one 'in the limelight' ... dressing up, doing tricks, posing for pics... friendly rivalry there. ;o)

15 Apr, 2015

 

I hope you had a nice Easter time TT.
Congratulations to Crocus Jasper and Conker !
And congratulations to Truffle in anticipation for the prizes he'll win in the future ... :o)
