Saturday between the rains.
Buckets and buckets of rain came and went.
I was soaked and my hair curled like it hasn't in years.
Then it stopped. The sun came out, a little.
So I took a walk down to the coop and shared some collards with the chickens.
They were happy.
My husband cleared out a few more cedars leaving more open space.
The larger trees are loving it.
We'll need the boards for the potato tower
the gallows when I find whoever is digging them up.
I laid chicken wire on top but haven't secured it yet.
Just layered some straw on top hoping they would
get confused and leave it be.
My knockout rose is on the corner of the house.
It's probably 8 ft tall and blooming.
It was an obligation purchase
to support a co-worker's high school band a few years ago.
This little froggy is quite at home.
The little plastic pond cracked years ago
but I don't have the heart to remove it.
The frogs live in it and
I like frogs.
Stella is getting ready.
This is my favorite day lily.
Blooms for so long.
I haven't put the top of the bird bath on yet.
We're expecting bad storms, potentially damaging ones.
Mary's there though.
Watching over things.
The little escapees are at it again.
I've chased a few down today.
They are on the tile down the hall, so it's ok.
We cover them when we're not around.
They don't go far, in fact, they don't really mean to leave the tub.
They lose their balance.
Then they cry.
They haven't figured out how to fly back up to the tub!
They are the sweetest chicks, little buff orpington's.
They let us hold them
and then they nestle down to sleep.
Taylor is loving them! Even Taylor's mom holds them
and she's afraid of all animals (crazy daughter).
