My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Pix of Quail and Rabbit

It's windy today. Way too windy to do any planting or building outside.... so I took some pics this morning. The rest of the day was supposed to be spent publishing my Kid's haiku book, writing and soap-making! However, my left arm is so messed up that I can barely do anything. The Kid's book is a priority. Then starting Hubby's porkchop dinner in the crockpot. Then lots of pain meds.

This is Blanca, our ruby-eyed french angora bunny rabbit. She's ruby-eyed (red-eyed) because she's an albino, which means no pigment in her skin or anything else. She can't be out in the sun, and definitely prefers cold over warmth. The above shows her munching on a dandelion leaf that I picked on the way out to the barn. Unfortunately, we have a large supply of them.

Here's Blanca contemplating jumping from her cage down 3 feet to the floor. Hmmm... better not. The big person has a hand-full of hay for me!

The above is a pic of our quail: Pecka the girl is on the right, kinda crouched down, and Fella (formerlly Ella) is on the left, keeping watch over his girl. Pecka has had a rough few days, and it's kinda cool that Fella is showing his concern. I think the flax seeds I gave them yesterday helped perk her up a bit. Well, I can only hope. I'd hate to lose her.
