Can you believe that today marks three years since Maggie had her babies? I remember thinking she was NEVER going to give those babies up, and finally she did! You can read her birth story here.
Crooked Acres Wednesday.
Daffodils are my absolute favorite flower, and luckily they grow all over the place on this property. This is the best time of the year!
Female Cardinal, keeping an eye on me.
This female Cardinal was SUPER annoyed by that Finch on the other side of the feeder and kept giving it the hairy eyeball.
The fruit trees are starting to bloom; this is one of the peach trees. We have high hopes that THIS is the year we get a decent crop of fruit. Fingers crossed!
Turkey Hawk, I think. Where were George and Gracie while this bird was flying over the back forty, eyeing the chickens? Sound asleep behind the coop, of course. Yet Monday morning when a hot air balloon went by, they were losing their MINDS.
Gracie Mae: Keepin’ the back forty safe from all hot air balloons and planes.
Larry the rooster.
Meredith Grey. Have I mentioned that I think she is JUST. SO. PURTY. ?
“HEY LOOK, IT’S THE LADY WHO GIVES US FOOD! EVERYONE COME ON!”
Pretty, pretty rooster, keeping an eye on the wimminfolk.
Gracie is totally making a joke at George’s expense, and he’s NOT HAPPY about it.
“Aww, come on, Georgie. Can’t you take a joke?”
I walked toward the pond to see what the ducks were doing, and the chickens didn’t want to miss anything. This isn’t all of them (some of them hang out in the coop during the day), but it’s most of them.
The ducks were hanging out under the bench, and came out to see if I had anything for them.
George on the other side of the pond, wondering what I’m doing.
Male duck, chasing one of the hens. Stupid duck.
Rooster at the water bowl. Gulpy-gulp!
The Ameraucana. She lays blue eggs. Not enough (we get two or three a week), but they’re so pretty that I appreciate the ones we do get from her even more.
Hens always look so judgey.
The Spirea, off the front porch. Hopefully I’ll remember to get a picture of it when it’s blooming.
“Seriously, lady? It’s April and you’re still wearing your warm socks?” Hey, I get cold!
Angelo does his T-Rex impression.
“Come HERE, feather teaser!”
She sure is a sweet little thing.
The FroliCat Pounce gives Mariette the Crazy Eyes.
“What you doin’, weird lady?”
Mariette and the foil ball.
There is just nothing Sheriff Mama likes more than a sunny day.
Have you ever seen a happier girl?
2013: “I disapproves of Mama playing. Mama is suppose to be here, watching me and taking care of my needs!”
