Chicken Bum...


The blueberry bushes are in bloom!


We did a walk about the yard to see what else is flowering...
Hello pretty dogwood.


We found the first lilacs at the end of blueberry row #5...


..and a few other bits for our first official garden bouquet.
Outside of the dandelion and buttercup bundles that is.


We had a new deck built on the front of the house, and we've been working hard to get in planted up.
This shot makes it look like we have done a pretty good job so far!


And today, the chickens were given their first free range opp.
This is why I brought the camera out - to capture this experience.
Happy chickens in the gardens.
Butt...


No, I meant to add the extra 't' to but, because butt is all I got.
Chicken butt.


Chicken butt.


Chicken butt.


I know just how she feels.
Sometimes, I feel like a small chick overwhelmed by the world too.

Cute picks.
We seem to be on the same schedule with our little chickens. We let ours out on Sat for a little free range while we planted some flowers. They chased after bugs and played king of the hill on every rock in the landscape. They are growing so fast and they are so cute.
Our coop is nearly done. Shutters go on the windows tomorrow.

Butt..... it's all so beautiful! "Pretty good job"... pffftt...! You guys did "one heck of a job"! It would be so nice to chill at that nice deck. All you need is a pitcher of mojito and you're set.... oh wait, sunshine! We need sunshine! Darn rain won't stop.

Robin said...

LOL I'm laughing so hard at all your chicken butt photos. I think they are just so fun! Even if they weren't so very helpful to your photo session they sure look like they are having a great time!

I dream of the day I'll be able to own a few chickens of my own. They seem to be the ultimate expression of true country living.

Too funny. Just like babies, your chickens have cute bums too!

What great chicken butt photos...Can you blame them for wanting to keep their heads down, all that yummy fresh chicken candy to be had.

Your garden looks lovely...I am jealous of that deck too.

Blessings Kelsie
