I love it when Candice comes to visit! We both have a great love for all growing things so we wander around the garden, checking on all the plants to see how they're doing. The spinach and lettuces are so cute in their little rows! We couldn't figure out what these one leaves were that were mixed in with the lettuce. Talon and Makai helped Kelley plant the seeds so it really could be anything! They looked like spinach but were a bit prickly. Then when we got down close I could see a little red peeking out. I pulled one up and it was a tiny radish! Ha! We felt like dummies! (but enjoyed some sweet little radishes!)
And this yellow rose bush has never been more beautiful!
And that's my Clematis peeking out from behind there. So pretty this year! It's covered with purple blooms!
And check out these lilies in the pond! They are so pretty this year! So so grateful we were able to have a start from mum and daddy's lilies so many years ago. Their pond only exists in our pictures and memories now.
Then we go out and say hello to the chickens and gather the eggs. This was the funniest thing. Kelley and I have been checking for eggs for a few days and there were not any! We thought this was pretty weird because they have been laying like crazy lately. This one light brown hen just sits on the nest all the time and won't let any other chickens use it. They will climb in and sit right on top of her or squish in on the side of her and she won't budge. We got to thinking maybe since she hogged that nest all the time, maybe the other chickens were laying eggs somewhere else. We looked around and sure enough, they had built a nice little nest hidden away where you'd never see it if you weren't looking for it. I guess that's better than laying them up on the shelf in the top of the coop where they were before! Chickens are goofy!
