Yeah White Clover Flowers!!!!!

Honeydew and Squirly reporting from Piggyville. Our slave tried to trick
us into eating purple clover flowers. Honeydew would not even look at
the purple flowers. Hey Mom you can't fool us. We have sophisticated
tastes. You can see by the look on our faces and the white flowers in
our mouths that we love white clover flowers. Ah!! springtime in
Swannanoa North Carolina. Munch, Munch, Munch......

Guinea Pig Crop Circle

Us Piggies have been very busy now that the nice weather has finally arrived in the UK can you guess what we have been up to?

Do you think......

...........that if I sit on my food bowl, Slave will think that it is empty and put more in it?





"Do not worry about my eyes," says Magnus Piggyfriend." I was born with small eyes but I can see very well and this does not prevent me getting around."

Imitation is the sincerest form of ...

Love. Nugget here. My older brother, Eddie (on the left) hasn't been
feeling so well lately, and my mom has been taking him to the vet a lot.
The other day I wanted to show him support, so I rested with him, and,
well, I thought if I looked just like him, he would feel better. He is
an amazing brother and friend.

Happy First Birthday to Piggyville Girls

Squirly and Honeydew celebrated their first birthday at Piggyville in
North Carolina by romping and chomping away in a clover patch. "Where
are all the clover flowers?" asked Squirly the silver agouti. Honeydew
replied, "Remember our slave did not sew the clover until October".
"This means we will not have any yummy flowers until late May." Oh well
at least we have plenty of clover, lots of love and a forever home.

May Day

Slave went out into the garden to pick some May flowers so that one of the Piggyfriend girls could be May Queen for the day. This is what she found.





We have a very long hedge in our garden, which contains many hawthorns but, because of the very long winter and miserable cold spring, there was not a single blossom to be found. Eeek!

"Sorry girls, " said Slave. " No May Queen this year but maybe you might like a substitute? I have lots of dandelion flowers."

" I would not mind being Dandelion Queen instead," says Mimi.

" I can eat these but I am not sure that May is edible. These are yummy!"

Slave tells us that humans can eat the leaves of hawthorn. When she was little, they were called bread and cheese trees. We much prefer dandelions. More please. We all want to be Dandelion Queens and Kings.

Today is Otto's 7 1/2th. birthday

After we get to be 5 years old, henceforth our Slave celebrates our "Half Birthdays" as well as our real ones. I was born on October 28th. 2010 so today is my 7 1/2th. birthday.

Here is a pigture of me enjoying my birthday breakfast with my best friend, Niamh. I am too old for toys like chubes but I do love my grass and my friend.
That is me on the left.

"Happy Half Birthday Otto" say the Piggyfriends. "Happy Half Birthday sweetie" says Slave.
