Hello efurryone. This is my very first post just by me. *waves* Nice to see you all.
I’ve been a little shy as I settle in so Mummy didn’t want to crowd me with cameras. Now I’m much calmer and I have a story to tell you! Yesterday evening the weather was perfect and Mummy decided it was just right for me to have my first ever run in the garden! She was very busy pulling all these boxes and things out of the box near my cage and I was a little nervous. Nacho told me how much fun it is out there but I wasn’t so sure.
Uncle Buddy and Uncle Basil went out first, they were squeaking with excitement. Then Nacho went out and it was just me left. I sat on top of the pigloo waiting nervously. Mummy came and picked me up, promising lots of fun. Whee walked through the house and I tried to pretend I wasn’t scared by hiding in Mummy’s hair. All of a sudden whee were outside. There were lots of smells and sounds and it was a bit overwhelming for a little chap like me. Then Mummy sat down and moved me down to her lap. Nacho squeaked and I looked around. So this was outside.
A big cage with convertible roof, retracted to allow more light. A big blue tent with a fluffy snuggle blanket. Two cardboard
castles boxes. And a big pile of green stuff that Nacho was currently scoffing. I sat there, very still for all of five seconds then jumped off Mummy’s knee with an indignant squeak of “Wait for me!” to Nacho.
The green spaghetti was grass and it was delicious. As it was my first time having any, Mummy restricted how much whee had so I didn’t overload my system. Nacho was not pleased and squeaked at the hooman for more most of the time whee were out there! The smells and sounds are fascinating and I don’t know why I was scared now! Mummy giggled when a bird called overhead and I started squeaking back to it and climbing the sides of the run. Here are some pigtures of my fun time outdoors:
Have you ever faced a fear and wished you had done it sooner?

As Mummy has just pointed out whee does not has thumbs to be green but that is beside the point. Today in the garden whee noticed something. Mummy is a truly terrible gardener but somehow some things in our garden have survived. Here is out garden so far.
Whee started with three tomato plants, one basil plant, one curled parsley plant and one cucumber plant.
The cucumber was nicknamed the unlucky cucumber as it was repeatedly dropped and Mummy believed it was DOA (dead on arrival). Within days it had vanished. It’s vanishing was blamed on notorious criminal slugs and snails reported to be operating in the area, however, imagine efurryones surprise when whee found a weak looking little stalk today:
The basil plant was rather more unlucky and died pretty quickly when Mummy forgot to water in during the hot days. There is nothing left to pigture!
The curled parsley plant might have been over nommed and under watered because it doesn’t really look too well!
Finally the good news! One set of plants are doing well! Whee will be having tomatoes furry furry soon!
Also, Mummy’s apple tree which has done nothing for two years has suddenly decided to give her a baby apple this year! Hooray!
Does you have a garden? How’s your garden doing? Is your hooman a horticulture disaster or green fingered fabulous?
