Chicks

100_5570

Our baby chicks are now 3  weeks old.  It kinda amazes me we have only had them 2 weeks.  Seems much longer somehow.  The red ones are a week older than the white ones but for simplicity’s sake we put them all at the same age.   

We had some rain last night, with wind (of course)  and it is still overcast today.  I am hoping for some sun but we’ll see.  Temperature is nice though, 56 degrees.  I was hoping to get some of the earlier veggies planted in the garden but it is too wet.  Maybe I am just getting in too much of a hurry.   Several years ago, when we first moved to Floyd, we had to replant all our garden.  About the last week of May, temperatures dropped to the teens for 5 nights in a row.  Everything froze, even through our buckets that we had used to cover our plants.  The seed potatoes froze in the ground.  So needless to say after that I try to not plant too early.  However, I can plant peas, lettuce, onions and cabbage now (as soon as the garden dries up enough). 

Well, time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

More Spring blooms

I was hoping with this shot to show all the trees colors together. The yellow of the forsythia, the white of the dogwood, and the purple of the lilac. This area is extremely fragant this time of year. When I’m hanging clothes on the line it smells so wonderful. Temperatures have been a little chilly here but today promises to warm up nicely. We are doing school as usual.Today will be our last spelling list. Yeah! I love doing school with my girls but we are all ready for summer break. I have made out my list of books for next year. We useABEKA.They offer free shipping in the month of April, so I want to order them before themonth is over.New books are always exciting around here.This evening I think we will be going into “little town” to get a few groceries, our seed potatoes and a few cabbage plants. I solook forward to enjoying fresh vegetables. Lunch break is over so I better get busy. God bless.
