A new neighbour, flowers and a 40's.....

A mixed lot for you to see today and hope you like them.
                              Next door have a new addition. A little girl kitty called Suki. At first she was very timid and now she comes to visit. These are taken in our yard..



                           I think maybe GJ will approve of this pretty girl visiting us. What do you think..

                         We pass a house just around the corner almost every day and we see this little one usually sat just outside with either the man or lady of the house. Today we stopped to talk and I held him for ages. He is very friendly and loves to be outside his door with his family .He is called Bubbles.
                        They also have two cats and they are both scared of Bubbles and stay clear of him.
                                  Look at this cheeky tongue sticking out..

                       I know I have showed you many pics before of our yard but at the moment it is blooming so lovely. We call it our little suburban haven.. This basket had another of the huge fuchsias and they are gorgeous.

                                             Jasper's little part of the yard..
                                              Barrie loves to sit here and have his morning coffee..



                                  A closer look at the fuchsia.
                                          We bought a new ornament, a little birdbath which  think is so cute. On the way home with it we damaged the tail. Barrie will hopefully mend it for me..

 
Yesterday we were at another 40's event in the beautiful Yorkshire dales.

                                       Dancing in the street.. Its always fun.

                           Look a this cheeky chappy keeping guard.


                                     During the re-enactment.
                                                 More dancing.
                              A  beautiful place for the event and although a small village its always popular..
                         This weekend was of course the Tour De France and there were so many yellow bikes that we saw on the way. This one was fun with all the flowers..
                              Outside a restaurant..
                                   A family of bikes...
   Hope you enjoyed a little look at our weekend...
Hugs Carol x

OH MY.... Carol that up close picture of you... should be FRAMED for your Family. It is just LOVELY.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Suki is such a pretty girl, how nice that she comes to visit!

We thought Bubbles was an ornament for a few moments, till we read on. LOL.

Ditto on that close up shot of you, absolutely terrific!

Suki loos very sweet and Bubbles doesn't look real!

You always seem to be having such fun at those 40s events!

Georgia and Julie said...

Suki is very pretty :)
At first we did not think the bird was real :o
We like the black cat and the one with tiny white patches ;)
Your garden is lovely.
A great place to sit in!

What lovely pictures! TY for sharing them. Suki looks like such a sweet ladycat. Jasper would have loved her, we think.

BeadedTail said...

Suki is a beautiful ladycat! We're sure Jasper would approve of her being in his yard which, by the way, looks beautiful this summer! Bubbles is a very interesting looking birdie! We'd be scared of him too!

You and Barrie always look like you're having such a great time at those 40 events! It's fun to see your photos! You both look wonderful in your outfits!

Sparkle said...

Suki looks so very much like the cat before me that it made my human's heart ache.

Brian said...

Such wonderful photos and y'all sure were having a big time at the 40s event. That little Suki is sure cute and I'm sure GJ would approve. I can totally see those two kitties keeping away from Bubbles, he is cute but I wouldn't trust him either MOL!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Suki is adorable! We can see why those kitties would give Bubbles a bit of a wide berth, just in case. And the two of you in your 40s finery look pawesome!

Terri said...

I'm sure GJ would approve of your feline visitor. Those kitties know all about the bites Bubbles can give! Your garden is doing so well. I love fuschia...okay, I love all flowers ;-)

Sweet Purrfections said...

We're sure GJ is looking down from the bridge and smiling on your visitor. Your yard is just beautiful.

san said...

That Suki is a gorgeous cat. For sure GJ would smile when he sees her. We always love seeing your garden and the '40s reenactments. Everyone seems to have such a great time.

The Island Cats said...

Suki is so cute. We know GJ would approve. Your flowers are so pretty. Bubbles almost looks like a toy!

Flynn said...

Suki is a pretty girl and it is nice of her to come and visit. Your yard and flowers look beautiful, so bright and cheerful.
Your 40s events look like lots of fun. I also think that is a lovely close up of you.

Jobi Harris said...

I think GJ would approve a lot that Sukie is getting around to visit you. I love all your flowers and plants, too!

Laila and Minchie said...

Suki is so beautiful and we think it's wonderful she visits so you can get a "kitty fix". Great post with all the flowers and the 40's event.

katsrus said...

Always love seeing your garden and 40's event photos. She is a beautiful kitty. So are the black kitties and pretty bird.

I think kitties are making it a point to find their way to you :) Also love those 40's photos!

Marg said...

Oh that is so exciting that you have a nice new visitor. She is so pretty. That must be fun. Your flowers are gorgeous too. Have yourselves a great day.

Oui Oui said...

SWuch beautiful photos! Your garden is lovely and you looked great all dressed up. Bubbles is a very handsome bird, and the black cat looked like Carl!

Kari said...

We think Jasper wholeheartedly approves! See those ginger patches on Suki's coat? They're a sign- Jasper's seal of approval. Kitties stopping by his beautiful garden for a moments rest is a perfect remembrance. The garden, full of life, a perfect tribute.
You both look so marvelous in 40's dress. The portrait of you, Carol, is just amazing. You're so beautiful! We agree the photo should be framed.
The lovely black kitty with the little white toes can stop by our hous any day.

OH your garden is so lovely!! Tom has worked real hard on ours when he has the time but it was so cold through most of the spring then it got HOT!!! Like 102 to 104 degrees.
Too hot--- but they out there-- are trying!!! They do not look as good as yours!!!
Suki is so pretty!! I'll bet GJ sent her for you guys!!!
THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT!!!

We think Suki might be a tolerable introoder.

Katie Isabella said...

GJ darling, ask Momma and Poppa if they will tempt that beautiful girl to stay over longer and longer. My mommy has poached on other's kitties when she as younger.

I LOVE the garden and could look at it all dya. Everything is in its place and beautifully done and the 40's..I could look at those all day and night and the next day too, my mommy said. You two look fabulous and very authentic! Where in the world do you get your clothing for these events?

Mr Puddy said...

MOL... Are you sure Suki is Timid ???
I think I just see her belly rolling up, ready to be rub :)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

You guys have the BEST 1940's clothes! The Human is a fan of Foyle's War and your posts always remind her of that show ;-)

That's a sweet little girlcat visitor--yes, I am SURE GJ would totally approve of you having a nice visit with her in your garden (which is lovely!)

Gattina said...

What a sweetie ! I am sure GJ appreciates ! You look very elegant !

Bellen said...

The bird looks so smooth and colourful, he barely seems real. I like how the cats are afraid of him...

meowmeowmans said...

We know for sure that GJ would approve of pretty Suki coming to visit. :)

The garden looks so lovely, and we always enjoy seeing you in your 40s clothing! Bubbles is stunning -- such colors -- but how funny we that the two cats are afraid!

Hugs!

Austin Towers said...
