Spring Glorious Spring!!

We got our first batch of chicks last week. I got 5 Welsummer chicks. I love their coloring. They lay DARK chocolate brown eggs. Here is a picture of one of them.

Here are some of the chicks. There are 5 Welsummers, a Buff Orpington rooster and a Golden Buff Rooster (he has a black dot on his head).

Here are the broiler chicks or at least part of them.

Michael had some time off last week and we took a day trip. On the way, we took a side road to go and see this barn that we had caught a glimpse of. We never were able to get close to the barn to see it better, but we did drive right by a swamp. Michael spotted this goose on her nest. She was about 30' from the road.

I am not sure what sort of ducks these were, but they were black with white bills.

A very sweet friend gave me 2 dishcloths she made. I LOVE them!! This one has a shamrock design.

This one has an Easter basket design.

Another friend traded with me and I got this milk bottle. I use these to put tinctures and herbal concoctions into. I have lids that fit them.

Joshua and Brittany bought us this bird feeder and the shepherds hook for our anniversary. It is beautiful!!

I got a picture of a visiting bluebird. I hope he stays and uses my bluebird box!!

Here is my buddy, Skye. She is really growing up.

The hyacinth are blooming like crazy.

This picture really makes me think Spring. It is overcast (you know those April showers) and there are sheep and chickens and the Forsythia in bloom!!

The violets are starting to bloom!!

Daffodils are blooming all along the driveway.

What signs of Spring are in your neck of the woods?
