I got a pitchfork for Mother's Day...

And I LOVE it!!

Here are some close ups of the vintage picture Mr. Simply Elegant 101 picked out for the occasion:


Yep, looks just like me.

I also got to talk to all my girls yesterday and my Mom on Friday.  What a wonderful Mother's Day.

Now, I am off to dig in my compost pile,

Chickens out and about

The four friendliest chickens got to go outside once this week. 

Flustard and Speckles the Golden Campines (pronounced cam-peen)

Rue and Herbert Meninger the Barred Rocks. 

Now, if it would just warm up, all 15 could fly the coop and get their vitamin D. 

The buds on the apple tree let me know it won't be much longer now.
