In My Garden Today...


we found a daisy...


...some acorns...


...an unknown, but always welcome, garden volunteer???...


...a long lost friend (who loves chickens)...


...an abundance of strawberries...


...and some beautiful roses.
So we are up four acorns, 3.5 pounds of strawberries, some lovely bouquets and some all important kindred spirit time.
However...
We are down one pearl earring.
 Peep jumped up on long lost friends back, and in one 'almost too perfect not to be planned' moment, pecked out her pearl earring, dropped it on the ground and Johnny Drama ate it.
Cocoa was pecking her in the leg as an added distraction, while Haddie assualted Lola.
If my chickens were penguins, I believe there would be blueprints and a detailed sketch of how this country mugging was going to 'go down'.

"It'll turn up.. or out"... I assured her.
 But she really doesn't want it back.
Fair enough.
Nothing chic about poopy pearls.
