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, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Double Rainbow and critter update

I didn't mean to make a spoof video, really. It's just that I had my camera while we visiting our goats and chickens after a big storm, and Hubby noticed the double rainbow. It's almost faded away by the time I shot this, but still... Sorry Double Rainbow guy. I wanted a little joy in my life too!

Hope this brought a little joy to your day!

Goaties doing well, and are even surprising us by going out of their little house and playing in the rain. That is, until it started to downpour.


Chickens looking great. Henny and Lenny Penny like rummaging through my corn for grasshoppers (get 'um!), and we've started letting the chicks out, a few at a time. Here's a picture of Warf (get why we named him/her that?) outside the coop with Cream. Warf has a beautiful comb, and look at the size of that crop! Black Australorp.

All this rain is really making our corn and other plants grow. Maybe the hail and microburst didn't kill off EVERYTHING last month!
