In the meantime,
Here are a few things to share:
|Two new girls to add to the only two |
old gals who survived the attack last year...
a couple weeks old here.
|The Blue Laced Red Wyndotte on the left, |
now four and a half months, Hermione
(yes, Potter head)and to her right, the ever special
Lite Brahma, Chickie Gaga!
|Miss Chickie Gaga has some serious attitude..|
and when she stands upright will blow you away
with her magnificent size! Fits her image!
|Three new babies arrived five weeks later|
|How amazing are her eyes! |
This is three day old Princess Buttercup,
a Gold Laced Cochin
|And this is the Princess at three months old! |
She'll have big bloomers!
|And this beauty is a Dark Brahma, also 13 wks,|
her name is Gilda (yes, Radner head!)
Will have to keep you in the loop as they get older and more pronounced on their markings...these are all known for their coloring and size...all big fluffy gals, with exception to Hermione.
So, next to chickens, my latest obsession of last year became Bearded Iris'...I bought a couple and built a long bed for them and waited...and while I waited I started looking on line to see what other colors there might be...holy crap!! I had NO idea how insanely abundant, mulit colored, and amazing these flowers could be. I searched for hours, building my catalog, picking colors that would go one to the other perfectly...it was a standing joke around here...June's Iris'...that's all I could think about. So I bought and planted and waited...unfortunately, most of them did not open this season, but the ones that did were spectacular. Will get better at this, I love them too much (and of course now that iris season is over I'm on to my number one obsession...Vintage Christmas ornaments...it's actually worse than the iris time on the internet...if that's humanly possible. I used to wait until December, but last year I thought about it in August...and now I just look all the time..!
These are some of my new Iris blooms from this past spring...ps. going to begin selling rhizomes on ebay!

So, it's nice to be back...I've missed the community here...will keep in touch better, now that things appear to be stabilizing...ha ha ha..as if THAT could ever happen around here! Either way, I'll do better. Have some shots of the garden veggies...and piles of nice grapes coming up...jams, all that good stuff. Thought I'd piece it out instead of hitting you with everything at once...mucho love to my Besties...hope all are having a tremendous summer thus far! Enjoy! xo juners
