The daylilies have popped up on the south side of the house.
On Wednesday there was another little farm adventure. After Tom had done chores and closed the barn door for the night, there were two chickens outside. They had gotten out through a space in the fence, which is now repaired.
Isn't the evening light just beautiful?
Except this hen who decided to go the other way.
Now what do I do?
She ended up going back just the way she came. These chickens live in the whole barn with the donkey, sheep, and goats. They don't have a separate coop except when we get new chicks, who stay in there for a while before being let in with the older chickens.
For the first time since October it has been warm enough to let the woodstove die a few nights this week.
This morning we saw robins on the lawn for the first time! How did they know it is the first day of spring??
