I just got finished washing off the eggs hubby brought in just now from the coop. The largest and lightest is from Cinnamon. She is a cream color with cinnamon dusted all over.
The young Buff Orpingtons that we brought home in March are now teenagers and their eggs are the smaller brown eggs. They have grown almost completely and are almost as big as the hens that we have had for years.
If you look back at a previous post when we first got all our little bitties New babies you can get caught up.
The chickens on the right are Blue Cochins. Check out the furry feet!
Sorry about the fuzzy picture, but my tremors are kind of kicking in today.
It is such a beautiful day. It has been very hot and humid (90s) this summer until today. It is only in the 60s today and very little humidity with a wonderful breeze. Just in case you are curious though I have posted many pictures of our yard in a lot of my posts, this is what I see when I sit on my deck. To my right is our pine grove. If you zoom in on the maple to the right, you can see our bluebird house where two broods fledged this year! They are all still here and will probably winter over in their house.
Michael swept through Thursday into Friday morning. We only got a little over an inch and a half of rain, but the wind was a little gusty. Once again, as we were with Florence, we were blessed to escape the horrific damage that so many other souls suffered from both of these horrible storms.
Since fall has finally come to our neck of the woods, fire wood is now the focus in our house. I must admit that I am not too thrilled as much as I have been in the past. The last two January’s, I was the wood carrier and lugging in five or six bags of wood up and down the deck steps every day would wear anyone out. And, man does it ever get HOT in our house. Plus, the dust and the wood shavings all over the house. Sorry. I enjoy being warm, but sometimes it is just a bit much for little me…….
As you can see, there are logs to be cut up and wood to be split.
And the big pile of ready-to-burn wood to the left is from last winter which hubby was convinced would have been burned up back then.
The birds are busy at the feeders as always, but they seem busier than usual. This morning, I saw every single one of our native species throughout the yard almost in one glance. The hummingbirds are still here even!
I think I will experiment and leave those feeders out until I stop seeing them. I read where migrating hummers will stop by even through November if they see a feeder. How can they see them from up in the air? I guess they just know!
Hmmm. I guess that’s about it for now. I wanted to share with you what’s going on here. And, this is every day for me. I am SO blessed with Father’s wonderful creation that shares itself and its beauty with me. There is joy and entertainment and even some drama right here in my little haven, my blessed back yard.
Please take the time to enjoy what Creation offers. Every moment there are hidden treasures just waiting to commune with you. He who is Giver to all, Creator of all, Father of all would love to bless you.
God bless you!!!
