I found this beautiful video today. It is simply a time lapse of flowers blooming with lovely music. Enjoy.
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” ~Luke 12:27
Hey there everybody! I have not posted in a very long time. There are plenty of reasons why, but let’s just say I have a Life and it has been demanding Attention.
As for new developments around here, Chunky has gone to freezer camp. It was a hard decision, but it was the right one. The girls are bald from all the “attention”. No, I didn’t do it myself, an experienced friend took him away in a box and brought him back in a bag. I haven’t seen it yet, since I’m not sure how I’d handle it, but curiosity may override my squeamishness.
The little chickens turned 3 months old on the 18th. The original crew turns a year old on the 27th and they’ll have been here a year on the 29th.
Our garden got started on June 23rd. I’m looking forward to pole beans, summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, and whatever beets the rabbits don’t get.
I’m not abandoning Madame Agrarian, I just can’t say how frequently I’ll post. Thanks for hanging in there!
Why, when there are six nest boxes to choose from, do things like this happen?

All seven chicks hatched by 7:00pm yesterday! We have one Black Australorp, three Buff Orpingtons, and three mixes.
I’d read that once you hear the chicks peeping in their shells, they’ll hatch within 24 hours. I went to check and see if I could hear them, and I could! Out of curiosity, I lifted Honeybun up to see if they’d pipped. There was a little black chick flopping around under her!
One of the chicks hatched in my hand. So precious.
On Saturday they moved to their broody coop. Honeybun is glad to have grass to scratch in.
The chicks are dry and fluffy, and the little family is in their new coop. It’s all good.
We have a chick! I can hardly wait til it’s dry and fuzzy so I can hold it!
Check back later for updates.
