morning-chick Good Morning!

This is my new screen saver – Rosey!  She is growing right along and definitely has a different personality than the other two chicks;  I wonder if chicks have unique personalities like people do … we will see.


They have become quite a bit more chirpy the past few days and at times they have stare downs with each other.  They will even chase or run at each other – time for more room maybe.  This weekend we  (we I will be helping) and taking notes and pictures for a blog post – “The Coop that Stan built” !

The seedlings are growing right along also …

I am interested in growing grains this year and spotted wheat and flaxseed in the bulk section of the grocery store so I just had to buy some and plant them. It only took 3 days for the sprouts to spring up and after 2 weeks this is what they look like – wheat in the back, flaxseed in the front.


Although we have snow piled up outside (along with a whole lot of other folks in the country) I was pleasantly surprised to see the marigold plants starting to bloom!


The Amaryllis is ready to bloom and Frankie the dog just had to get his hound nose in on the picture … that nose sniffs everything!!!
