May Moments

How the time does fly!  I have been so consumed by all the projects I have failed to stop and share them.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words . . .

The Birthday girl holding a bouquet of beautiful roses sent by her sister.
Bob, the crow master.

My big chickies!

They are getting so beautiful.

Cucumber cage.

Corn cage (left) sugar snap peas (right).

Basically everything on this side of the yard has to be caged off or it becomes chicken snacks.

My over-achieving radish.

Tiny salad sprouts!

Baby basil.

Melons enjoying the sun.


I can't wait to get everything in the ground!


Freshly-tilled (we got a rototiller!!!) earth ready for planting.


Homer is an Anna Hummingbird who lives here all year round.  Someday I hope to get a picture of him in the sun where his bright green body and deep pink face really sparkle and shine.
Happy May Everyone!!!

Thanks for the update! What a great gardener you are! Everything looks fabulous and your chickens really are beautiful birds. I haven't been doing much blogging either. Flea has a baby peep of unidentified origins. Do you feel up to the challenge? She's posted some good pics of it. You might be able to refer her to some old posts about chicken care as she has never had one before.

Spring, when bloggers run out of doors and do things, of course you haven't put up much lately; but this post was lovely and inspiring. I did something similar lately...but your post has so much evidence of muscle in, fun, fun.

What a wonderful garden! It makes me so excited for summer to see that. :)
Who wants to blog when there are such fun things to do as the weather warms? ;)

Love the cat photo. Bet that little guy is a lot of help. LOL!

Really can't wait to see photos of all these as the Summer moves on and they grow. It gave you a lot of extra work, protecting it all from the hens but I hope they are worth it. Happy Birthday! It was mine yesterday too :0)

God continue to bless.
