Scenes from Adelaide

In Adelaide we have pigs in the mall.
They have lovely shinny heads and backs where people have patted them.

My, this porker looks very happy I think some of the people have been feeding him, what do you think?

This pig has a whole rubbish bin of scraps. Talk about a pig in mud...
I tried to tell him he will get a tummy ache, like I did at Easter if he ate toooo much.
I think he listened to me because he walked away.
Every one loves our pigs that are in the center of our city's shopping mall.
Are these Bee Hives.
They are sculptures that depict the symbol of home, that were made for the Centenary of Federation.

Oh Granny I really feel like I might slip off.
In our park lands there are about 22 or 23 of these mounds. They look quite good among the gum trees.

It was a busy day going into town, I am worn out and I am just hangin out for Toast, honey and peanut butter for supper. At least I don't eat like those pigs.

I know it is spring in the northern hemisphere so these hyacinths are for all my followers

Welcome to a new follower Corina.

My thought for the week:
"We all need a lots of powerful long-term goals
to help us past the short term obstacles."


  1. Hi Wilbur,

    Wow, what a special and exciting day you and Granny had. We love your piggy friend, I love piggies.

    Be careful sitting on that sculpture, it looks like it would make an exciting slide though.

    The spring flowers are so bee-u-tee-ful.

    Heaps of Hugs
    Prudence ♥

  2. Очень красивые цветы) спасибо!
    И замечательная увлекательная прогулка - свинки - прелесть!
    Хорошего дня)

  3. Excellent new friends, we hope they shared some of their bounty, although perhaps not the rubbish... We were kind of disappointed those weren't beehives too, it looked time for a little something!

    As for spring, don't tease us, it's still not showed up here!

  4. Hi Wilbur,

    How wonderful to have such lovely piggies to visit when going to the mall. You and Granny have so many fun adventures and see so many wonderful things. Spring is finally coming and soon we will have beautiful flowers like the ones in the photo and not long after that we will be going to camp. See you there.

    Hugs to you and Granny,
    Bellamine & Wendy

  5. What a great day you were having again... those pigs look fantastic, this is the kind of art we can understand... ;O) And we bet the piggies were really excited getting to know Australia's most famous bear! ;O)

  14. I like pigs. The hyacinths are beautiful.

  15. I love those pigs! I want them for my courtyard! ;-) If I was a teenager I had a pig on the farm of my first boyfriends parents (I was 16 it is a loooong time ago) I have raised this pig with the bottle, because his mother don´t feed him, and he was trusty like a dog someday. He always sit and lok at me like this one on the second of your photos and than I have to scratch him between hin ears.. He was so cute! *sigh* Thank you, your photos make me remebering in happy good old times!
    Hugs Melli

  19. Hi Wilbur,
    I can't believe I missed your blog post last week, especially given the subject of PIGS!!! I'm making a pig at the moment, so I should have come with you to see the pigs in the mall - it would have given me inspiration. Granny takes you to such interesting places, Wilbur - you are a fortunate bear indeed!


  20. Oh Wilbur! You and Granny must have had an audience when you were getting your picture taken. Wish I had been there to watch..especially in some of your situations!
    Giggling here!


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking the time
