Spring in the Hollow

In spite of a few snowflakes the other day, I think Spring is here! Let me show you around our front yard...
Here are some of Mom's Daffy flowers. They used to be planted all in groups and rows, but the landscaping a few years ago bulldozed them, and now they pop up everywhere.

These white blossoms are from our pear tree in the circle drive. The tree will have so many heavy pears that the limbs bend all the way to the ground. If our piggies get out of their pens, they head straight to the tree. They love eating pears!

This is Dottie, our Silver Penciled Wyandotte hen. She lays brown eggs.

Here are two of the guinea hens. I have not plucked a guinea hen yet because they are very good at flying.

These are the Blue Andalusian hens, and of course, Dottie is peeking at the camera again. The Blues don't like the hen house, so they roost in trees at night. They lay white eggs.
Here is a quick look at a Production Red hen. I think she was in a hurry to be somewhere else. See ya!
This is the view out our front door where the pickup is parked. And Dottie again. Methinks she is wanting a blog of her own.
Yes, the grass is greening up nicely here and the weather is warmer. I'm ready for spring!

Lovely - what great flowers - our magnolia is starting to show signs of life - I love spring!

I like those chickens - I think Dottie should have a blog - with all those eggs - you must eat lots of omelettes. I love cheese and mushroom omelettes - nummy.

Lots of licks
