My DIL Kristi said.. come and look.. so I grabbed my camera and went to the back door and this huge healthy squirrel was perched on top of our garden shed dining on an acorn. ::chomp chomp:: Isn't he cute? Too bad his tail isn't in this shot.
Meet my new chicken! I won a giveaway on my friend Kathy's blog Running With Rocket - and she sent me this fabulous hand sewn chicken oven mitt. This will really come in handy in our kitchen, THANK YOU Kathy!! I met up with Kathy at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival and we had a good time walking around the show and chatting.
Our two little grandsons are soon to be celebrating their birthdays - Kristi and her sister made these cute little invitations for their party. These are made like a pop up box with Minecraft images.
I put a fresh tablecloth on the table with some flowers and my one St. Patrick's Day decoration.
The hyacinth continues to scent the house.. what a glorious flower!
Our den is to the left and the china cabinet is behind.
After a rainy weekend the sun is back and it's gorgeous outside! I went out for a walk and said hello to the chickens. Two of them are laying, the two in the middle. The Cuckoo Maran is on the right and lays dark brown eggs, so I know she's slacking - and the one on the left, the Buff Orpington lays a light brown egg - slacker! My aqua egg layer is working, the Ameracauna, is laying again and the unknown breed 2nd from the left is laying a light brown speckled egg - and she's doing well. I love our chickens!
Our plum trees are in bloom! I'm worried as it's too early for the bees to be out so they won't be pollinating the plums, so we might not have any fruit. I hope the bees come out!
But aren't the plum flowers beautiful?
And my dark purple lilac is almost opening.. in mid-March? This has got to be the earliest lilac bloom ever!
And the white one is allllmost open! YAY!
OK, time to pack my swim bag and get going.. Gracie is meeting me in the pool. And the sun is shining! Happy happy! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
