We are having a run of gorgeous weather! There is not a cloud in the sky and it's warm! Wheeee! I returned home from a Portland Women's Forum meeting yesterday and enjoyed a "yard safari" - walking about and enjoying the sunshine. Isn't it fun when you see something coming up in a pot that you forgot you put there? Here is a returning Primrose, and pushing up next to it is a Hyacinth!
See? BLUE SKY! :-)
New Chicken UPDATE! Here is Betsy Ross. The poor new girls are completely being bullied by the old group of 4 hens. They have been hiding out in the coop since we got them. I insisted that Dayle put some water in the coop for them, but he thinks they need to come down to eat out of the feeder that hangs below the coop. Yesterday we staged an intervention - he shooed the new girls out of the coop and then spread cracked corn down for the old girls and we blocked the old ones from the feeder and the new girls ate like crazy. Dayle put a wood pallet up against the building to provide some shelter and a place for the chickens to climb on.. the new girls climbed up to the top to get away from the "mean girls".On the right is Bella - she has a grey tail which I love - Bella is the name of the heroine from the Twilight series and it's set in grey Oregon and Washington so I thought it would be a great name for a grey tailed hen. Right? Do you see the funny feathers pouffing out of her cheeks? That's the Ameracauna trait. And green legs.
Another returning Primrose. That color just blows me away.You know it's nice weather when the fish come out from hiding.. and eat. Here are our 5 fish.. 3 pond fish and 2 koi. The koi have gotten HUGE!
As of yesterday this is the daffodil in our yard that is closest to opening - I think it might be in full bloom today, what do you think?
Here is Flipper - he's my favorite of the 2 koi, with more gold on him.
Our neighbor has 2 horses in the pasture next door.. do you see this one? I called to him and he raised his head from grazing.
See all the daffodils? Hurry up, kids!
I think we need to pull some moss out of the waterfall.. oh HONEY?Dayle was outside watching the chickens and came to the back door and told me to bring the camera.. the woods were bathed in alpen glow..
The orange light on the big birch tree bark.
Our 80-100 foot tall Douglas Fir trees in our woods.
Pretty pinkie-orange cloud.
Day is done, gone the sun, from the lake, from the hills, from the sky. All is well, safely rest. God is nigh.
It's another sunny day here - and I am heading off soon for lunch with Gracie, Taci and Betsy! We're going to Boccelli's Ristorante. Shall I take my camera? I hope you have a fun weekend planned. We have a clear calendar - and sunshine - oh YEAH! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
