Springy Temps

Beautifully springy temps! Looking around and noticing the blue sky, singing birds and bumblebees. Immediately, Mr. Bowie knew: it was finally spring. The first thing you want to do on that first warm weekend of the season is drink fresh tap water outside. I went for sweet chocolate ice cream.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. Herman, that’s exactly what I would go for (no – not the tap water!) – chocolate ice cream…..Teddy would definitely be of the same mind as Mr. Bowie though….! πŸ™‚ HAPPY SPRING

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

    • Thank you very much, Susanne! Hope you’re having a wonderful day!
      Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards!

    • So true, my dear friend! Personally I prefer coffee flavoured ice cream but hey, I can’t say no to chocolate ice cream… Mr. Bowie would love salmon flavoured ice cream…

      • Coffee is my favorite ice cream flavor. Mr. Bowie might just be in luck. Apparently, Coppa in Juneau, Alaska won the top Symphony of Seafood prize for its candied salmon ice cream last year.

  2. Wonderful to see Mr. Bowie enjoying a favorite activity. I have recently been having ice cream cravings too.

    Michelle, Diavolo and our resident patio cat very appropriately named Sunshine 🐈🐾

    • Hi Michelle! Hope you’re doing ok and having a wonderful day!
      So glad winter is almost over and we can go outside and enjoy warm sunshine and ice cream, of course!
      Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards to the furry ones!

  3. Enjoy that special water Mr. Bowie, and ice cream Herman. I had another kind of treat yesterday. Robins migrate away from here for the winter, and it’s always a good sign to see them coming back. Yesterday there were a whole lot of them, all over my yard. Yaay spring!

    • What a coincidence… I saw the first robins too in my garden, yesterday! Even Mr. Bowie was very interested in the little birds… πŸ˜‰
      So glad we’re finally heading in the right direction of spring and summer and… ice cream!

    • Thank you, my friend! Glad you liked this post. Mr. Bowie was rolling around on the warm terrace tiles too…

  4. A beautiful photo of Mr. Bowie enjoying some fresh tap water on a spring day! Good to hear you enjoyed some chocolate ice cream, Herman! All the best to you and Mr. Bowie from the cats and crew here. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Lavinia! Glad you liked this post. My favourite ice cream taste is coffee flavour. It’s on my shopping list… So happy we’re finally heading for spring and summer.
      We had a wonderful weekend. Mr. Bowie was outside for hours and kept me company while I was cleaning up the garden.
      Wishing you a wonderful day, my dear friend!

      Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards to all the cats and crew!

    • Hi there, my dear fiend! So glad you liked this post!
      A perch flavoured cone… I’ll keep it in mind, my friend! πŸ™‚
      Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards!

  5. A robin taking its morning bird bath, dense fog giving way to less fog giving way to generally cloudy giving way to partly cloudy skies. Later, it’ll be snow for the evening and overnight hours into tomorrow, possibly 1-4 inches.

    It is Springtime in the Rockies. πŸ™‚

    • Hi David! I’ll admit it all sounds very beautiful and even romantic. But I prefer springtime in this part of the world, my friend! But I would love to pay the Rockies a visit one day… πŸ˜‰

  6. We have completed week 1 of spring and it’s off to a wet start. We had 2 weeks of rain, and now we have 2 more weeks of it on the way. Doesn’t feel like it will ever warm up and dry out! I hope you have a fantastic week, friend!

    • Hang in there, my friend! Summer will be there before you know it… Always look on the bright (and sunny) side of life…
      Wishing you a wonderful week!

  7. That’s an awesome and excellent photo of Bowie. I’m glad you’re having warm spring weather and enjoying fresh water and ice cream. I would have chosen mint chocolate chip, but we all have our favorite, right?

    • Hi Mary! Glad you liked this post. We enjoyed the wonderful weekend but today and the rest of the week will be rainy days…
      I’m wild about chocolate but don’t like the combination with mint. Well ok, maybe once in a while… πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you very much, my friend! Hope you’re having a wonderful day!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Oh no, my dear Kosmo, -15 C sounds very hard and cold… Looks like our freezing nights are over and let’s hope spring is here to stay…
      Glad you likes this post.
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and send his regards to Kosmo!

  8. Freezing rain this mrning but supposed to get really nice in a day or two.Mr. Bowie would have been licking an icicle at our house. That photo really made me smile, you know cat’s and water. I am glad spring seems to be on the way, this winter seemed very, very long.

    • Hi Angela! We are so happy too to see spring is finally here. We don’t like the winter…
      Glad you liked this post and the photograph! Mr. Bowie loves to play with water and drink it from a tap.

  9. The water from the outdoor faucet and chocolate ice cream sound good. It was really nice weather here last week and we painted the porch. Not as good as ice cream but needed. πŸ™‚

    • Well, the porch will be ready to enjoy ice cream the next sunny day! πŸ™‚
      Hope you’re having a wonderful day, my friend!

  10. Looking at Mr Bowie, I heard myself saying, “more water daddy”. Of course I was only 7, in our backyard, running through a sprinkler. May simple pleasures be found in your lives this spring too. Don’t look now Mr Bowie but your little paws are getting wet πŸ˜€ This is a wonderful photo Herman x Boomdee

    • Hi Boomdee! Mr. Bowie loves water. He also likes running in the rain and drinking rainwater…
      Glad you likes this post, my dear friend! Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

    • Thank you so much, my dear friend!
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Hi Julie! You are so right, especially about the ice cream part… πŸ˜‰
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend with lots of chocolate eggs (it’s a local Easter tradition in this part of the world).

    • Hi Robert! Spring has arrived, finally…
      Going to look up my playlist with Nick Lowe songs… πŸ˜‰
      Have a nice weekend!

  11. Ah Mr. Bowie– how wonderful to be able to drink tap water straight out of an outdoor faucet. When I was little, in the summer, sometimes we would drink out of the hot garden hose in the backyard. The hose had a very special hot plastic/rubber taste. πŸ˜‡ Ah…memories.

    • Hi Mary. What a coincidence… I remember doing just the same thing when I was a kid and we were playing outside. Mr. Bowie is so lucky his water is very fresh… πŸ˜‰
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
