Just in case you readers think I’m filling the need of a grandparent to Reed, here’s a picture of his two wonderful but camera shy grandmas who both live within 10 miles of Reed. He also has a grandpa and 3 great grandmothers and Reed describes them all as being beautiful and amazing. I’ve always said I’m the lucky one – Reed has grandparents aplenty but I’m the one who loves chickens.
Yesterday Becky and her friend Jeanne entertained the toddlers at Concord during Nursing Home Week.
Karla, Reed’s mom, brought June and Vera, his little sisters, to listen to the music. Vera liked doing the actions.
I promised pictures of the chicks but they’re very hard to photograph because they dart here and there so fast.
Today Reed and I are going to open up their space and give them the whole pen. They are going to love it!
Hazel and Ernie Joe Mauer.
Pam and Ethel – almost twins!
And today it’s finally sunny and warm – I’ve been working on moving the plants from the basement and the shop outside. I stand by my rule not to move plants outside till Mothers Day. I had already moved some outside last week when it was so warm and they suffered in 40 degree weather last weekend. Never again.
Many of these are going to the Farmers Market. I have not moved my big plants yet – soon.
Now what have I forgotten? I am looking into putting advertising on the blog. I spend lots of time doing this and hope we can both benefit from advertising.
Connie has a new quilt finished – picture coming soon. We will make this pattern available for a very reasonable price in the near future.
I am binding the blue squares table mat – I actually got it quilted. Now it’s on to a new project!
