Spring has sprung

Spring is here to stay I hope. I know the animals think so. Rabbits ate my newly planted broccoli and brussels, not the whole plant, just the leaves.

Good news, we got the tractor running again. Bad news, now the lawnmower is not working. When it rains it pours.

I have baby chicks in my living room again. That gives me about 2-4 weeks to get a home ready for them. I have Rhode Island Reds, which lay a nice large brown egg. I also have Americana, also known as The Easter Egg chicken. They are supposed to lay blue eggs. I believe I have the Silver kind.

My peach trees bloomed again this year. maybe we will actually get peaches! I have a pear tree to plant. It is about a 2-3 year old tree. At 5 years old they start putting out fruit. I suppose this means I will have to start liking pears. LOL.

Chip and Peaches are busy making a nest. There are 3 eggs in it (maybe 4. there was a lot of noise in the nest just a few minutes ago). I really need to find a home for the other birds. I guess I need to post on the board or on Craig's list.

I guess that is all for now. Have a good day.


  1. It's like a re-run of 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' - fantastic ....

  2. It's been too cold to have any blooms here, but it was lovely to see yours. A few more weeks and we'll begin to see some.
    'On Ya'-ma

  3. Everything sounds so wonderful and with great potential for a great spring!

    I'm excited for you.

    The chicks in your home, the eggs Chip & Peaches are proudly chirping to everyone... I love spring time, maybe because I live in the tropics.

    Cheerful peach flowers... hope you'd take pictures when the tree bears fruits.

    Have a great weekend and a totally fruitful spring!!!

  4. It sounds great at your house! Nice and lively! Have a good weekend.

  5. Our trees are only in bud at the moment ~ a couple of more weeks and we should have some blossom out ~ yours look really pretty ~ It has been a nice day here for the first day of Spring ~ I hope it continues ~ Ally x

  6. Love the chickys but those pop ups drove me

  7. Very nice post. Glad the peach tree bloomed and the tractor is fixed. Sorry about the lawnmower. I hope you have some baby birdies in a few weeks.
