Hello friends and happy Monday! I do hope you all had a pleasant weekend. Ours was a busy one with the gardens being the top priority. Since I was gone all week when the weather was beautiful we had to make up for it on Saturday and a soggy Sunday between showers.
I have much more to get in but Mr. Weatherman told me not to plant any seeds until later in the week because they will just wash away....So nice that I have that personal relationship with him, ha!
Can't wait to dig into the latest issue of Mary Janes Farm, as you can see on the cover, they are tempting us with a recipe for Carrot Jam...sounds very interesting!
The chickens would like to say hello so we will hurry out before the next shower.
Oh my, the rooster has given them a warning signal...look at them run to the coop, something must be around.
And there you have it, the hawk, this is their nesting and hunting area. We used to be afraid of them but the eagles are our real enemy as far as the chickens are concerned but Junior the rooster never takes anything for granted and gathers up the girls just in case.
Here is a great shot almost right above us. As you can see the little birds are happy to 'escort' Mr. Hawk around, just to make sure he stays away from their nests.
Well that was an unexpected surprise to this post, I am so pleased I could share it with you.
Hope you all have a nice start to your week. I'm off to go gather up magazines to recycle or soon they will be doing a 'hoarders' episode on me!
