Some folks don't like keeping chickens because of the lovely little gifts they leave for us anywhere and everywhere. Me personally, it is one of the many reasons I LOVE keeping chickens. Their manure is one of the BEST fertilizers around. But, watch out it is some potent stuff. I like to make a tea with it. Hold on... no worries, not for me but for my plants.
Nope, I didn't name this little one. That would be my daughter's doing. Ellarina is wondering "where are my favorite blueberry treats?". She loves seeing me... I bring her all kinds of yummy goodies. And in return, she give them back! Rabbit manure is another wonderful fertilizer.
Yippie, more gourds
Almost done drying
I am so excited, I just ordered myself a brand new cordless Dremel with some fun attachments. I hope Bill and I won't be fighting to much over it. A Dremel was the very first gift I ever gave him when we were dating. I am going to have a lot of fun when it gets here. I also indulged and bought myself 2 new CD's for my collection :"Lifeline" by Iris DeMent & "Dirt Farmer" by Levon Helm. Woo Hoo... gotta listen to something while I am scrubbing mold off gourds!
It's Springtime in the South
Azaleas are not my all time favorites but they sure know how to wake up a yard. Ellarina gets to enjoy these guys in her front yard.
I am finding it very difficult to force myself to do my "inside work". I suppose that, it is not such a terrible thing though. It sure does make me feel good and keep me inspired and motivated. I will get back to my studio/office/sewing room /dumping ground ... soon enough. It has gotta rain sometime :}
