Furry Late Sunday Selfies On A Springtime Glorious Day...and a Haiku, too










Love that spring is here;
Tantalizing sniffs; warm sun;
Warm grass; Pretty blooms!

That's my Springtime Haiku...even though I am kind of late fur Haiku day, BOL!!
And wow, its going to be cutting it short on the Selfies blog hop too...sigh...my dogretary is just too busy doing all these not-doggy things.

April 9th

Do you remember the snow that was here on April 9th, in the morning??

April 17th

April 17th
Well, its all gone...(fur good I hope...). The sun has come out, warmed the earth and my bones too:)
It also made the spring flowers start to 'explode' around here, OMD!!

April 16th

There was 5 inches of snow here a week ago!

April 16th: The same mini daffies as were buried...
So even though growlmy was working, when our weeping cherry tree decided to put on a show such as not seen since 2009, growlmy had to get out her camera and snap away. Some of me came along too:)
Kind of like a photobomber, Tee-hee!

April 18th

April 18th...in full bloom!

Gloriously blooming!

Like a big pink cloud!
Spring brings the bugs out too, and this butterfly obliged growlmy with a 'selfie'!

The weeping cherry is abuzz with gazillions (87 gazzillion to be exact...) of bees, bumble bees and flies, all vying fur their share of the nectar and pollen. In all the almost 29nyears growlmy has lived here, though, she has nevfur seen any cherries on that tree...it must not bear any. Howvefur the walnut trees around here sure do make up fur it, and so do the oak trees. No wonder the tree rats have so much fun in our back woodsy area. We did have a regular cherry tree once, but its long gone...succumbed to some kind of disease.

Can you find the bee?

Bee
We have lots  of honeysuckle bushes and they bear a load of little red berries that the birds love to devour. Those shrubs are just greening up now.

Hi Growlmy!
Its so good to be able to get out and bake myself a bit...and sniff the whiffs of springtime...and dig, OMD, do I love to dig...this mole airhole became a target of my efforts...even with wobbles I still want to do all the things I enjoy.

A Mole Hole!! Gotta see if I can dig him out!




Though sometimes the digging results in um...yucky stuff in my jaws, BOL!
Pfblbthffftt!
Growlmy saw her oncologist last week,  and she got another good report. Each passing year with good reports is such a huge blessing! Praise the Lord!!

Little Sophie had to return to the hospital, she just can't seem to get rid of the infection and breathing issues that trouble her so much, poor thing.

My auntie's friend's daughter had her bowel surgery  at long last, and now seems to be finally on the road to recovery. Phew.

Growlmy's Aunt has started the treatments that are trying to preserve the remaining sight in her eyes.

I am doing OK, too...still wobbly and the stairs are still the biggest hazard to me...as I do not want to admit that I need to take them slowly...and yes, I fell down the back steps the other day...growlmy thought I was going to break a leg, but not me...being a terrieristic pup, I just shook it off and tried again...

My dogretary thinks she should combine my blog and my kitty brofur's blog into one blog so that she would only have to do one blog, and she could just alternate between me and the meezers, or just blog as she has things to let us woof or mew about. What do you all think of this??
She is trying to simplify life...presumably to spend more time with us furs...um...somehow I don't trust that, BOL!!

Woofs!

Here are some other spring blooms:

Springtime bulb in bloom, but growlmy does not know what it is, BOL!

Any suggestions as to what this is??

Daffodil

Oh-oh! A sure sign of warm sunny days...

A large grape hyacinth

Bluebells
Enjoy these weeping cherry blossoms; they won't last long...wind and rain take them all down in a big hurry...then the yard will have a diffurent kind of snowstorm, BOL!



Blossoms are just beginning to 'explode'.







'Biggify' this to see the bee in the top left corner...





See ya'll next time!

I am hopping in late to the Sunday Selfies and Haiku blog hop; hosted by The Cat On My Head

  4. Thank you for all the wonderful spring pictures! We think we're a bit behind you, as our pear tree hasn't opened it's buds yet. We're glad to hear everyone's doing fairly well.

    We follow both your doggie blog and your kitty cats one, and enjoy them both. It would be fun to see them both together sometimes, though.

    1. That is what my aunty always says if she drives ovfur here at this time of the year...she lives near Toronto, and it takes about 2 - 3 weeks fur that area to catch up as it were. I think our climate garden zone here is a b compared to there where it is an a, not sure if we are in the 5 or 6 zone though...have to check, BOL!

  5. Crikey Mr JF Sir ... Mum's been waiting to see your cherry tree blooming like that for so long. She can't believe it was 2009 that she saw it on dogster. Time flies, aye? It sure is beautiful. All of your spring flowers are. I was sad to hear that you still have the Wobblies but you seem to be coping alright. I sure hope you are alright. I think it would be a good idea for Growlmy to combine you blogs. After all it is a bit of a double up. As long as those two meezers don't take over completely. I like hearing from them but I like hearing from you the best. Take care Mr JF Sir and try and stay upright, aye? It's good to know that everyone is doing ok!

    1. Hi, Charlie!
      Its a good thing you took a good look at our tree...its pouring right now, which will help to make that tree drop lots of blossom petals on the ground...then the ground will have a pink carpet...

      Those wobblies just seem to want to hang around. UGH.

      Thanks fur visiting:)
