There were four eggs in the hen house this morning. One under the edge of the water dish. The Brahma hen doesn't like to lay her egg in the nesting boxes, she has her own nest on the ground. Why then, is she laying her egg all over the place? Ha! There is poop in her nest, as it is under the roost. Okay. Time for some house cleaning, and rearranging the furniture.
Yes. I too am ready for a thorough house-cleaning. Our table holds an interesting array of nesting items.
In a few moments I am off to pick up my grandlings. Mary Alice is going to spend the night. Rebekah will have some "alone time" with her Mama. It is looking like a nice, long summer afternoon. It is looking like heaven on earth.
Swallowtail Butterflies are fresh and new by the first of April. Larabee is a hidden valley created by the Eel River. Perhaps I have lived here since time began, a butterfly in the willows on the banks of a Northern river.
