|7 " tall daffodils|
Last week, right after the snow melted, look what I found! Daffodils peeking through. They were breaking through the ground before we entered February. Blooming daffodils are always a good sight.....soon. Right now, it looks like blooms will be here before long.
Robins were flitting about.
Patsy Cline and Thelma worked
diligently in the front yard this afternoon.
Just a bit later than this picture was taken, I was going to the lumber yard. Both hens were within 3 feet of the road in the driveway behind my car. I picked up a stick about a foot long. The plan was to throw it over their heads, between them and the road. This way, they learn the road is a scary place they should not go. Oh, no! I threw it behind them and scared them. However, I suppose their previous road experiences taught them not to go into the road. Instead of going away from the stick, they ran to the side and in the opposite direction.
No more than 30 seconds later, I back out. Thelma ran for her life...in the same direction she fled moments before. Once again, she ran for her life with Patsy Cline following close behind. I had to laugh. Poor chickens. They think I am out to hurt them.
As you can see, they are very busy, having settled down to bug scratching and pecking. They get busy on these warm and sunny days.
Daffodils grow everywhere around my yard.
The 79 F degree afternoon was balmy.
I am discarding things. It is pretty weather to just get rid of it!
Dogwood buds are swelling.
blurry, but it is too dark now
to take a picture
It is sandal weather and I have been wearing mine for over a week.
It was so hot outside today. I baked a turkey and heated up the oven. We had cabbage and sweet potato along with the turkey breast and water. We had no dessert.
We pay for summerish weather. If it is unseasonably warm in the winter, the threat of tornadoes will be over us! I am bracing myself for wind tonight, maybe straight winds and maybe tornado.
How is the weather where you are? Is spring around the corner where you are?
