I have had time for a break here and there to snap a few photos of stuff going on. And there is much going on in addition to show prep.
The male grosbeaks finally made an appearance! I was very thrilled with this photo, btw. They may be gone by now but over the weekend we were the hotspot for northern traveling birds!
I know that this is a crappy photo but I wanted to show more than one at the feeder. As a matter of fact, I counted 5 males at one point but couldn't get to a camera fast enough. They are a little skittish about having their picture taken.
And Mama decided the 3 bitties that first hatched were enough and has been moved to the apartment with the little run so they don't have to worry abut the big chickens. When they get a little bigger we will let them go out in the yard but for now this run is great. And there really are 3, just can't see one for big Mama being in the way.
Random photos of things blooming now. The peonies are always a delight.
My clematis is doing very well...finally. It looks to be loaded with blooms this year.
And these iris are making a comeback after not doing so well last year.
We have managed to plant some of the garden. So far, we have the okra, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage and eggplant in. In addition to the lettuce and asparagus which are doing really well this year. Got a few ripe strawberries today too but their bed is in much need to redoing.
I really loved the lines in this photo and the crazy thing..... I didn't notice any of that while taking the photo. It didn't strike me until I had downloaded it.
So, back to the grindstone! Not sure if I'll get to post before the show, which starts Friday. Wish me luck! I could really use it.
