I Did It Again

Off to the feed store to get horse feed. TO GET HORSE FEED. I need to focus. They had some more baby chicks. Americana; just what I wanted. These are light colored, whereas, my other ones are dark. Anyway, I couldn't resist. See the little yellow one by the tree. She wants to hang with the big girls.

It seems she follows just a special one right now. They both were really scared at first, but they seem to be mingling in. Sometimes the bigger ones would peck the little ones but now they are doing good.

This was the other one. She was tired and sleepy. Just had to have a little nap. I have brought everyone in for the night and everyone is doing okay.

Is It Spring?

My first buttercups this year. In my yard that is. The ones in the pasture and in front of the old house beat mine out.

And Oscar getting in my way. Actually, he thinks he's hunting lizards or frogs.

My day lilies getting a jump start.

And my hyacinths coming up.

Warm Days

On warm days the little honey bees come in the green house to pollinate my blooms on my lime tree.

Isn't that nice of them.

Three More

My two little biddies was just not enough. They would CHIRP really
loud. Saturday afternoon I would leave the bedroom where they were and when they would chirp, I would just start talking to them to keep them quiet. In a few minutes, here comes one around the cornor. I put her back and about thirty minutes later they both rounded the corner looking for me. Today I bought three more and this was their first day outside. This worked. I have them back inside for the night and the are perfectly happy.

I went to put feed out for the deer and Skylar is still scouting it out. She's trying to tell me "you know, I smell deer out here.

I Did It Again

Today I went to the feed store to buy more chicken feed. I did buy more feed, but also two little biddies. These are Silverlaced Wyandottes.

They are really cute. I just don't seem to be able to help myself. At least I only bought two.

That's okay. I had forgot I lost two last month. Although I'm sure I will buy more before the spring is over.

Skylar Escapade

This morning I woke to rain at six am. It was not hard; just enough to wake me up. I rolled over and then remembered I had left Skylar outside last night. Her idea. Anytime it starts to rain, she will scratch at the door.
No scratching, so I get up to go let her in. No Skylar. I call and call. Still no Skylar. Since it was lighting in the west I knew she would be afraid. I go in and call my friend down the road and Skylar was there. She brought her home on her way to work. It is only about a half a mile from my house. This picture is of her laying out on the wet ground after the rain. Again, her idea. It is only thirty-nine degrees now.

It was sixty degrees at ten am and by one it was down to thirty-nine. It is twenty-seven now at five pm. At least I am in the one fourth of the nation that is not getting snow or ice.
Sissy just says let me in the house. I don't want to hang out here with Skylar.
