NEW ARRIVAL-THE LATEST IN CHICKEN WEAR-THE GARDEN-GOING AWAY

22 07 2015

GREETINGS

Chris has gone and I spent a lovely afternoon with my friend Patti.  Her gardens are to die for.  SHe has done such a splendid job on them.  I got a huge bouquet of catnip which I will be drying and making into cat beds and toys.  Some of the humidity is gone and a slight breeze on this beautiful summer day.

 

Helen had her stitches out on Monday it was the hottest day.  SHe has an infection and will have to take antibiotics for 10 days.  She GAINED 1-1/2 pounds.  Yea Helen.  Chris and I worked some on her new house.

 I did a spring cleaning on one of the inside coops hanging spearmint in it to keep it smelling nice and discourage insects.

NEW ARRIVAL

Kitty has arrived and looks like a lighter version of Helen.  She was the only bird left in a flock  and needed company.  She will be separated from Hazel’s group by a fence  till they get use to each other.

 I hope it will be a smooth transition.  SHe is an older bird and will lay the occasional blue/green egg.

THE NEWEST CHICKEN IN CHICKEN WEAR

Phoebe’s back is a mess from Mr. Peppers and she adores him so, taking her away from him would be a last resort.  Now she is wearing the latest in chicken wear, a chicken saddle.  I think the color goes well with her lavender/gray feathers.  She is now used to it  I think I will make a few for her as she will need a change every once in a while

THE GARDEN

I don;t have a lot of sun on this property, the greatest amount is behind the house on the hill.  It makes gardening quite difficult with leg problems.  I will be thinking of ways I can improve things and make them easier.  

What I did plant this year is doing well.  I love seeing the leeks flourish and think of all the potato leek soup I will be making each time I see them.

Some beans are coming along, the peppers and herbs are doing nicely and radishes and beets  will be plentiful.

The Sheep

They have been enjoying the many corn husks and weeds this summer.

GOING AWAY

Tomorrow Debbie and I will be leaving for White River Junction fpr 2 days of Rug hooking, seeing old friends and listening to lectures.  I haven’t been in some time and am looking forward to the two days away.  It’s the first time I have left Sammy.    We will have a wonderful time and there will be lots of pictures when I get back.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you are enjoying this summer day. Carole

I love your posts Carole! Mmmm, potato-leek soup (I’ll be in cooler weather very soon to be able to enjoy soup again), the chicken saddle! – and I’m glad you’re getting to go away and relax and have fun rug hooking! Cheers, and see you the last week in August or. like the song says, “in September.”
