Signs of Spring


Have a look at Charlene – see how her coat is beginning to shed? This is surely a sign of spring. And I’m getting an occasional egg from my few old hens – it’s always a good day to find a blue egg and look at the white egg. Strange, huh?

    Thanks for sharing! I sure enjoyed having chickens and I miss them, but it was a long cold, and sometimes difficult trip back to the chicken coop at our place. We were never able to keep a path cleared and it just got too hard to get back there. It’s about 125 yards from our house to the coop–not a short trip when the weather was bad. Falling through the top of a crusted four-foot drift was no joke and it was a real chore to try to get back on my feet. Now that I don’t miss!

    Here in the East they are starting to put the buckets up to the Maple trees. That is a sign for us. Forget we got 9 inches of snow today. Buckets are going up. Yep, I am concentrating on the buckets. What is with the white egg? Did she hiccup?
    Warm thoughts are always going your way.

    Certainly hope Charlene is the bearer of good weather news Mary!
    We didn’t see much sunshine here at all due to high haze (fog), but the sunset is looking colorful with a rosy glow. More blooms on the geraniums.
    A most unusual attachment on the white egg. I’m wondering if it is open inside the shell into the larger egg or not? I’ll not lose any sleep over it, tho. Are you still baking the eggs for the dogs?

    That is a mighty strange protuberance on that egg! I hope Charlene is right and we get double digit temps soon! Buffalo NY is not the Miami of the north, contrary to popular opinion!!!

    The white egg has a bunny tail! Glad you are seeing signs of spring. I went to a gardening fair all day and that was inspiring also.

    Nice to hear uplifting news. My sister in law will soon be with our Lord. Please pray for her journey and that her sons and their families stay strong with her loss. She is and will always be our angel.

    Mary – could you please tell me again how you freeze eggs for your dogs? My dog loves eggs and I’d like to do it when I have a lot of eggs. Thanks, Linda

    Love the blue one -surely a beautiful pastel Easter egg. Do you ever blow them and save the shells?
