Friday’s Farm Fotos

April 8, 2011

Another week has slipped right by.  Spring is in residence most of the time, although old man winter rousts her out now and then for a light frost or some nippy weather.  But flowers are blooming and birds are nesting and the peacocks are screaming, so it must really be spring!

I saw the first iris blooming in the flowerbed around a big oak tree in our front yard. . .

And the Solomon Seal is starting to put out little dainty bells of bloom . . .

The Farmer saw some of the pond denizens out enjoying the warmer weather . . .

The frogs are also hopping all over the place.  I guess they’re just hoppy!

Another day I saw a bunch of the chickens congregating in the evening.  I’m not sure if it was a chicken conversation or a conversation of chickens.

Hen Party

It’s not exactly a hen party, because too many roosters are attending this event.

They’re not the only ones who hand out together. Here’s a line-up of the happy hoofers. . .

And now I must get back to work.  I am determined to finish up this book project!
