I call this photo "Tulip, Up Close and Personal". :-)
On Sunday I checked craigslist and found someone selling Ameracauna hens, about 6-7 months old. So, I gave them a call and talked to a nice woman in Redland, about a 40 drive from here. She gave us directions and we agreed to arrive at 4 pm. These chickens should lay aqua eggs, but the colors they lay are light green, light blue, pea green and even PINK eggs. So, this will be fun to see what they lay. They are not yet laying and are having a bit of a time getting accepted into the "pecking order" of our 4 hens. I've used names from the last batch of chickens that we lost to coyotes. Betsy Ross and Bella. They are on the far right in the photo below.
The poor girls are surrounded in this shot.
At the farm where we got these 2 was this crazy looking Polish Crested rooster! Isn't he wild looking?
I am having such fun with the game "Draw Something" - I use my iPad and a stylus. I thought I'd share some of my "works of art". :-)
A few days ago my red Hibiscus bloomed for the first time this year.. isn't this aMAYzing!!??
I think I need to repot this thing and prune it and fertilize it to repay it for these eye-popping blooms.. :-)
When I got home from my 1 hour swim workout today there was a package waiting for me, my bunny kit from Alicia Paulson! I look forward to starting this project.
We got to choose from a dozen different dress fabrics with matching yarn - I will be knitting the little shawl for her, too. :-)
Here are the beautiful materials in the kit. She created a bunny for her little baby daughter and then decided to make kits to sell to her blog readers.
Well, I am plum tuckered out.. so I think I'll crochet on my shawl. Dayle is making teriyaki chicken with yakisoba noodles and stir fried veggies. Am I spoiled.. or what? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
