Mother's Day weekend I found this chicken statue and picked it up for when the coop was ready. :-) It may end up on a little table outside the coop, but for now it sits by the gate outside.
The chickens are adjusting really well and like their new area, it's cute they all push for spots near the windows. The one on the bottom to the left is a loner, she's different than all the other ones. Very tame and so sweet! One of my favorites!!
They love looking out and watching us to see what we are doing. LOL. Little hard to see, but I thought it was such a cute picture!
Jerry built a nice octagon shaped flower bed for around the flag pole out front. This past weekend we bought 6 knock out rose bushes to put in there. They will bloom into the fall.
They turned out really nice and the colors are so pretty.
We got red.... they fade to pink before dying off.....
And yellow... they fade to white before dying off....yellow has always been my favorite color of roses.
This little beauty is still finding 4 leaf clovers and even some 5 leaf clovers! The crocheted shawl she finished after teaching herself from YouTube.
She loves hanging out around the yard and taking each dog for a walk. Bella and Owen and Skippy were groomed this weekend so I'll have to post updated pictures of them. All ready for the warm weather!
Beautiful flowers all around the yard still blooming.
Jerry also made me this lovely trellis to put my clematis on that I got for Mother's day. :-)
These purple Irises were so pretty, but didn't last very long.
We found a crazy big Asparagus in the garden the other day! Yes, still getting a bunch of them each day and I've been freezing them about every other day! :-) Should have plenty this winter.
Was so happy another little bird made a nest and laid her eggs right outside my kitchen window. She sits there every day protecting them. Can't wait till they hatch. :-)
Kathleen finished the year with straight A's on the honor roll and all kinds of awards and a trophy!!
Hayley also made honor roll and won awards as well as received recognition for her success in Power of the Pen.
So very proud of both of my girls!!! Goodbye third grade for Kathleen and goodbye eighth grade for Hayley! Next year on to high school... time sure flies by.
We also found a wonderful new lake to enjoy with a walking trail, playgrounds and pavilions not far from the house. :-) It was a perfect weekend to enjoy it!
Kathleen by the buttercups :-)
Hayley was collecting goose feathers to make a project I'm sure she will feature on her blog soon.
Lots of momma geese with their babies and duck mommy and babies too :-)
Just drying some dill in my kitchen window. Since putting my herbs in planters outside they have really taken off well.
Last day of third grade was Monday, the 8th! All that was needed was her lunch bag and a gift for her bus driver. :-)
Wouldn't be a picture without Cooper at the bus stop.
I made this with sign to kick start the summer for the girls when they came home from school. Activities are planned and let an awesome summer begin!
