Happy Hens!!

Mexican Sunflower
I only got about 1/4 of this one cleaned up

What a great day outside today!!  I was able to get about four large plants cleaned up and weeded...which took me half way across the front of the house and part of the south end of the house...the asparagus had gone crazy these past few days with the rain we had, I cut about 2 lbs. of asparagus today and we had some for dinner, yummy! 

Clara Curtis Mum
 Let the new young hens out and they are being curious and cute.  Note to self take pictures of the young hens.....I was also able to pot up some mexican sunflowers and coreopsis, I love yellow flowers.

Yummy Radishes!

What a great weekend out in the yard!  Everything has grown so much the last few days...we moved the chicks to their inside area to make roosting with the others easier for them.  I hope we can let them out to play this weekend.  The grass is starting to turn green, it's so bleak here in the winter all brown and dead, and then it rains and rains and it all turns green, it's beautiful.  The cherry tree is blooming ooooh and the iris's, did I mention the iris's, early bloomers here are the purple and the white ones.
