Flowers Again

It seemed like the Wisteria bloomed overnight. I would watch it every day or so; then boom, here they are. Sissy is kind enough to pose for me. I took several and then noticed one stem in front of her. I go move it; she moves also.

Just a few of the Lady Banks have bloomed. It looks like it is getting ready to go.

This one, Flowering Almond, is really pretty. Fiddle, they are all pretty. I can't decide which one I like best.

This afternoon something got my poor little Biddie. The one that was born in February. I think it might have been a hawk because it was still pretty early for coyotes. It was around five-thirty and it doesn't get dark until around seven-thirty. Poor little thing; and I had decided it was going to be a hen.

Oh dear! So sorry! I am afraid to let our chickens out of their pen. I think I will wait a week or two before I let them back out. They love to free range over the property, but I worry about losing the hens to predators. When the weather is better I can be out with them during the day.

Your blooms are beautiful! Sissie looks so cute framed by the wisteria.

Oh no, it's so sad to lose one. We're sorry!
But Sissy with the beautiful flowers is truly a sight to cheer you up.

Sorry to hear you lost a hen. It's always a bit sad even though you know it sometimes happens.

I love your wisteria blossoms - just lovely!

I know it's the balance of nature, but we always feel helpless when one of our babies is taken.
