Spring has Sprung!

Sweetie here, howdy to all my friends and welcome new members.... Old and New, Close and Far!  Welcome also to first time Global visitors and frequent travellers alike.  I hope everyone has been keeping well, and thanks for all your wonderful comments.  Come, grab a cuppa and make your escape. Join our little world, if only for a brief stay.

Hi every-bun, It's Angel here, sorry Sweetie - you can have the blog back in a moment... I just wanted to share a very old picture with you.  It has a  funny story that goes with it....

Do you want to see?  Ok, look below........

Oh, "Poor Chester" I hear you say?  Well read on.....
Here is the story.  Our Little princess was two when this photo was taken, long before I was ever born. Yollie was on the telephone, Little princess was on the case! It took her highness less than 2 minutes to make Chester 'bootiful' as she later insisted was all that she was doing  .... However, it took her mummy over 15 scary minutes and countless scratches to take the clips out again! I think he liked being 'bootiful' what do you think?
 I also would like to answer the regularly asked question of .... "Is Holly one of the 101 Dalmatians?"

Well, yes! Holly is one of them. In fact she is number '12' ......
 Do you see it?  It is made up of her "dot's" and Holly has always had it.  It sits up on her shoulder and we think it is very special. (As does she!)

'Ok Sweetie, I'm done, you can have the blog back now'...
Thanks, Daddy-bun.
Well that was interesting, I never knew about those pictures.
On to other news.
Well, it has been very exciting here at Fairy Castle Farm.  The baby chicks are starting to grow their real feathers and taking in the world.
 They are just so adventurous 
I can't help but stop and stare.

Much to their dismay, I am not the only one that stares!!
Oh the attitude!  At such a young age and it already shows!

Next, On to the SPRING FLOWERS .......
The flowers here at the moment are out of this world.
These are the Gaillardia and they are actually from last spring, the plant never died and they have gone crazy with blooms this year.  The back ground is actually the real sky not a back drop! Amazing and so beautiful I think.

If you want to know more about these amazing blooms, see here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaillardia
I especially love how beautiful the jasmine smells, even if I can't eat it (toxic) ;o(

And ...... my Yollie finally got a picture of the elusive "fishes"
 I do use the term 'fishes' loosely, as she only captured a photo of ONE (1) fish! There are at least 20 in the pond (and breeding).  My Yollie has not given up on the perfect picture, just yet, watch this space.

So thanks for stopping by, have a bun-tastic week every one.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying some spring weather. The Gaillardia look lovely.

Fishies are slippery critters and definitely of the camera-shy variety. Perhaps luring them with a little fish food will give a better photo opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by, my friends. Jade, that is a marvellous idea, I will have to get Yollie to do that!

Welcome, Abby and Milo ;o) so nice to see you here, I do take a good picture even if I do say so my self (flutters eyelashes).

Hi Shell, we think spring is the best time of the year! Spring fever and bunnies are the best mix ;o)

Dear Sue, you are just too kind ;o) (soft whisker tickles and nose bumps) from Sweetie xx
