Spring Is In The Aire

I am feeling full of the joys of Spring today, so this was my reaction when mum suggested an afternoon stroll. I just love my walkies, I could be out all day every day & still want more I reckon.

This is my most special stick. I keep it in the bushes here safely hidden & every walkies I go & have a bit of a nibble on it. Mum finds it hilarious for some reason. If any other doggies ever find it I'm going to be so upset. All the catkins are out on the tree now, so mum says Spring is definitely on the way.

There are lots of daisies coming through in the grass. They are very pretty, so I'll have to be careful not to pee pee or poop on them.

There are quite a few dandelions too. Mum says they make you go pee pee lots if you eat them, that could be amusing!

Mum has been teaching me the names of all the plants & flowers, but she's not certain what this one is, maybe some kind of buttercup? In any case, it's very pretty.

I really like these ones. They are called snowdrops, I guess because they're white! I wish there was still real snow, but I suppose these will have to do.

There are lots of daffodils coming out too. At first there were just lots of green shoots, but now the flowers are opening. Mmm, smells lovely.

The bushes where I hide my stick have these little blossoms on them, very sweet.

Quite often I see squirrels in this tree, but today there's just lots of beautiful blossom.

Phew, all that fresh air & nature watching can really take it out of you, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Hey, Oscar. It's Katy, Suki's Mom. I just had to say that I saw your post on Suki's guestmap and I noticed the name "Katy" on the email for someone in your family...your mom, I'm guessing. How cool is that! Not too many Katy with a "y"'s out there. I love all the pretty pictures you posted. Nice flowers :)

You look tired after your trip outside! I'm hoping it is warm enough here this weekend for a good LONG walkies!
Have a good weekend, pal!


Bogart said...

Nice pictures Oscar - I guess all that green and growing stuff happens after all that snow! We FINALLY got a little rain so we should have some more greenery here soon...


Marvin The Dog said...

Lovely pictures!

Sure is pretty where you are! It was pretty chilly here in LA today and yesterday was raining! You look so peaceful takin' a nap that I think that's what I'll do right now! yawn!

Oscar, if you want snow I can give you lots.
I long for the spring because Mama is too much of a wuss to go out for long walkies (It was -19 today)
And you know what that means...I have to suffer. A lot of short quick walks no long ones.
Enjoy your walkies and lovely weather for me

Hello Oscar, your Mum was right, I do have a Cath Kidston bed. It is pretty cosy and I like to bury my toys underneath the cushion and then lay on top of them. I think it's very clever of you to hide your stick. When out on walks I like carrying a stone about in my mouth just for the hell of it. The bigger the better! I never swallow them though, I'm not daft! J x

Blue said...

What a great walk!
The pretty yellow flowers are Celendines, have got lots coming out in the wild green thing I call my gargen lawn...
You'd like it!
A pats & strokes from me to you.

Simba said...

You look worn out after your nature trail. Flowers are coming up in our garden and I've been told not to eat them?????

Maggie said...

Now you've gone and done it Oscar! You've got my mom foaming at the mouth for spring! She just loves all of the pretty flowers! I myself still want lots more snow!

Love ya lots,

Jasper said... are so KEWL to have that stick hidden in the bushes. I am glad you enjoyed your walkies!

Loui said...

Yep spring has sprung here too....mum ain't happy as I have dug up all her snowdrops. Whoops!

Sophie Brador said...

Spring and flowers are very far away here. Sophie hates it when the snow melts and will find the smallest, teeniest bit of snow to roll in before it all melts. But the slushy, muddy dirt has it's own appeal too. You would never roll in mud would you, Oscar?

jaffeboy said...

Wow... What lovely flowers... I can smell spring in the air too!!!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

ooh..the flowers are so beautiful. We do have some flowers out side our house but ours is grown from a pot.

Sundae said...

I'm so envious! I haven been out in the longest time now. Hope I'll get to go to the beach next week if weather is fine.


Joe Stains said...

your mom is very smart to know all of those plants!

Nugget said...

Hi Oscar, I am looking forward to spring days too! I love spring day walkies!

Sharon said...

It was nice to go with you on a spring walk. We stayed inside this weekend to get away from the second blizzard of the season. Wish we could stay home tomorrow, too. It's too cold and wet to go outside.

Huskee Boy said...
