I’ve been busy lately, even in all the rain we’ve had.  At least our wells won’t go dry and our gardens won’t shrivel from lack of moisture!  They may get moldy and attract an army of slugs, but no, they shall not shrivel.

On the first day that the sun did finally burn it’s way through the seemingly endless canopy of clouds, my neighbor and I built a small yard for the hens.  They are only 2 months old, which is a bit too young to wander around the property, but they seem quite content to go in and out of their coop.  Here are a few pictures of them.  I have Golden Comets and Plymoth Barred Rocks.  I really love their feather patterns.

Annabelle just graduated from the 8th grade and below is a picture of her all dressed up.  My baby is turning into a beautiful young lady!

And last, but certainly not least, is a picture of my son, Nijel.  He’s a hard one to get pictures of because he’s either at work or off doing his own thing.  However, he does like to hang out with the chickens, which is where he was when I captured this image.
