*spring is on it's way

It is true, when you are a blogger and you have been away for a while, it is hard to get back on a roll. This past week I have thought I would get to the keys and type out some morsels of how life has been around Erilyn but I just couldn't bring myself to it. I love blogging, I do. But I have found that when I am away for more than 4 days or so, I start thinking things like, "I don't know if I will ever blog again" or "I think I am done with this". Funny thing is, I just read The Coop Keepers most recent blog post and she feels the same way.


At any rate, even though my post have been nonexistent, life around here like life around your place has certainly gone on! The days are becoming full of more life almost daily! Our azaleas have nearly finished  blooming for this year, the amaryllis's are shooting up and looking like they will burst forth any day now and of course fluffy little baby chicks were born weeks ago. The grass is growing, weeds too and soon the mower will start is unending task until late fall is here again.  We have a great jump start to spring, wonderful spring!


Just yesterday my beloved and I were in the garden areas and we noticed that the slim potatoes trimmings that had gone into the compost bin were now sprouting.  We have just planted potatoes, so I scooped the up out of the compost pile and took them over to the potato patch.  These two plants will make a meals worth of potatoes by summers end. These simple things bring me joy.





Our little chicks are growing just as fast as the grass and weeds in the front yard!  The turkeys are starting to catch up with the chicks that are few weeks older than they are.  This little cutie is an ornamental chicken, a polish variety.  We purchased this one as a straight run mixed crested polish chick from a local farm supply store, so we are hoping it is a pullet.  We are starting to have trouble with Husan now... I have been chased once, Kierstyn once, and now my beloved once as well. We will see how that works out. All I can say is, he looks meaty.   Anyway, the little polish chick breed sort of caught our eye when we were in Alabama last month when we saw an adult one running around the little hatchery.  The one we have likely is a Buff Laced Crested Polish, I can hardly wait for her to finish feathering out! 

More potatoes need to go into the ground, so I am off. I hope you all have a great day!

  1. Lynnie -- I am guilty of the same feelings as you and Jayme (just love her blog BTW) at times. LOTS of signs of spring here on the Nebraska Prairie but no gardening yet.

    Blessings!

  5. Your spring makes me envious, Lynnie. We've been teased with its warm days but always comes the cold and yes, sometimes snow. But we are now awakening to the chirping of the birds...colts foot is in bloom profusely now. Won't be long now! And as always, your photography is gorgeous. Hugs to you, friend.
