May 2008 Challenge - Pets and Green (Flowers, grass, plants or anything that's green)
 
What does anyone have planed for the [B]"May challenge"[/B]?? concidering it is only 1 1/2 days away.. we better put on our thinking caps and come up with one..:D

any ideas??

Breeze, I was just going to post asking the same thing. :laughing:

My mind is a blank right now for ideas though.

what can I say 2 great minds think alike
[SIZE="1"]fools never differ[/SIZE]

what have we [B][U]not [/U][/B]done??

something doable for the kitties :D I can never find very appropriate pics for the themes ...or maybe im just lazy

Maybe Otter/hazel's idea a while back for a "squish convention"

[QUOTE]Hazel: They could have a Squish Convention! Everyone squish in here, please, and we'll get this convention started!

onster: hmmmmmmmmm that could be a monthly photo contest theme sometime

Otter: Very good idea! Misery and Bunduk would have staring roles
[/QUOTE]

Quoted from this thread [url]http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=50527[/url]

FLOWERS!! pets and flowers???

-ashley

Ck also mentioned flowers in the TJT. "april showers, may flowers"

I already have pics of kitties eating flowers

Flowers sound good to me, cats & dogs & other furries/feathered can do that :thumbs up

I can do 'mud', 'squishies', or 'flowers'...

I'd like to choose something today if possible but what about Green.
(That might give the cat people more leeway and green of course includes grass and plants etc)

So it could be anything green related - just a thought though. :shrug:

Thx

Don't think that would work in [I]our[/I] backyard :laugh: .

Maybe I can find a patch of weeds somewhere .

Green, flowers, gardens...all sounds good to me :thumbs up . It'll definitely be a challenge for me.

HAHA!! 'green' as in green grass or 'green' as in recycled cardboard?? we have tons of both!!!

Onnie uses the recyling bin and his personal kitty fort, does that count?

i dunno about mud hazel, kitties dont like to get their tootsies dirty

Plus id have to bring mud indoors and im not tooo sure how that with fly with the parental unit, lol :crazy:

So basically it is either flowers or "Green"....:thumbs up (there, there squish convention, one day u will have ure turn :grouphug:)

marko May 1st, 2008 04:32 PM

Ok everybody - The pre-challenge posts are merged and the challenge is on.

I sort of merged the green ideas together just to keep the theme as wide as possible...

...... and I already know what I'm doing with Ziglet :evil:

Poor poor :cat: ....he's [B]so[/B] not going to be happy.

But hey, he does get free food and rent, .....time to pay. :evil:

Who is posting first...ready set ...Go!

So nice to see green grass. Ours, where we have grass (Attacked by grubs last year) still looks more like hay then grass :(

Wow gorgeous Duffy!

And as always stunning pics Rick!

I only have a few green pics as my guys never venture out into the grass!

First up- my first cat Cordelia(cat-nabbed by my mother) when she used to go outside. Then my favorite tree. And lastly my in-laws' beautiful man, Ebony who passed away just last month. :sad::rip::candle:

rainbow May 2nd, 2008 02:05 PM

Beautiful [COLOR="SeaGreen"]green[/COLOR] shots everyone !!! :lovestruck:

[B]Rick,[/B] I can certainly see how Polly's photo was a finalist in the Canadian Living magazine's contest. :cloud9:

phoozles May 2nd, 2008 02:54 PM

I love all the shots! :lovestruck:
[B]growler[/B] Duffy's eyes are really brought out by the green grass!
[B]rick[/B] the vividness of the colour is amazing!
[B]krdahmer[/B] love the loungin' kitties - and a beautiful shot of that tree!

I don't think I'll have any green shots - my guys never venture out doors and I don't bring flowers in because they are munchers :evil: so I'll have to live vicariously through you guys! keep 'em coming! :thumbs up

breeze May 2nd, 2008 04:03 PM

[QUOTE=phoozles;588271] so I'll have to live vicariously through you guys! keep 'em coming! :thumbs up[/QUOTE]

what about a blanket. or a pillow. or a sock, or a scarf. or a piece of material that is green or a green shade.....even a toy that is kinda green around ...it does not HAVE to be flowers or grass or trees......anything green or kinda resembles green or flowers....


[SIZE="1"]anything, shhhhh how about photoshopping it...[/SIZE]

All great pics. Unfortunately they didn't all open for me, but I will try again.

Frenchy, those flowers that Bailey is laying among, I looked up in my gardening book and it said they are a rare species called Dandelions :laughing:

As some of you now know, I graduated and now know how to post pics, so here are a few.

Herbie in my lillies:[ATTACH]36316[/ATTACH]
