Chickens, peeps and a few flowers.
Especially for Kathy - here is the coop. Bear in mind it is a temporary home for the two biggest chickens till the permanent henhouse and large yard are complete. It includes bits of my old greenhouse, cold frame, guinea pig run and a shipping crate. It has a secure padlock to keep out the nighttime predators.
The girls seem very happy with their surroundings (Red Betty and Henny Penny)
And seem to enjoy watching antics in the pool beyond the fence.
Its hard to believe the peeps have turned into baby chickens in just 3 weeks. Today they had their first taste of the outdoors. They seemed a little perplexed at first:
But soon got the hang of what to do.
The gardens are so fresh looking at this time of year. Although I crave flowers and color above all else, the many shades of green and beautiful right now.
Hosta Gaucomole is almost good enough to eat.
I love Angelique tulips peeking up amongst the forget-me-nots.
And bright lily flowerd tulips with Euphorbia Polychroma.
More subtle, a pale lemon azelea.
