Scooby and pheasant 1Scooby and pheasant 2

A day or two before the Emsworth family joined us for Easter, whilst out walking with Scooby, Ian found a pheasant that he gave to their dog who has brought it with him. I have been very remiss in not mentioning it before, but it is probably why Eric and Scooby ignore each other in the garden,

Tulip

where tulips are now blooming.

Magnolia

The North Breeze magnolia is now looking even more magnificent.

Jackie and I accompanied Becky and Ian on a drive to Curry’s at Christchurch where they bought a new Toshiba laptop charger. Afterwards we visited Stewart’s Garden Centre for coffee. The others also enjoyed scrumptious scones.Carp

Before entering the store we stopped to watch the carp enjoying the sunlight on their large pool.

Beard

In the restaurant area I engaged in conversation with a very friendly couple, the gentleman of which sported a beard that the current breed of rugby players would envy.

Chihuahua

Towards the exit we met Chica the chihuahua who shared her basket with a fox and a duck. She is thirteen years old and can’t walk very far.Derrick

Knowing how she felt I was given a head start when walking back to the car. I got there first and waited on a conveniently placed chunk of rock.

This evening the five of us dined on set meal M4 at the most friendly Family House in Totton. Jackie, Ian, and I drank Tsingtao; Becky Diet Coke; and Flo Apple Juice.It was very enjoyable.

  1. Seeing your photos is inspiring me. As soon as our spring is in full bloom, I am going to start taking photos of my town and posting them.

  2. I’ve just started visiting and need to get to know the names of your lovely fur friends. I’m nuts about all living things but mostly dogs and kitty’s. I adore that photo with the stuffy, so snuggled in the bed, oh my!
    Chica is also too cute for words. Cheers little ones and to you too Ian.

  3. That fella with the beard could join the band ZZ Top – he’d fit right in. You, young man are looking rather spiffy! Good for you.
