Sunbathing Chickens

It was 50 degrees this morning when I went to let the chickens out to free range.  Later I found them on the deck sunning themselves.  They have been so much fun to watch.  I havn't named them.  No names seem to be needed.


See the one stretching her wing?  That is something they like to do.  Sometimes they use their foot to help with the stretch.



I have included some pictures of flowers and peas from our yard.
This is one of the flowers my grandaughter planted last summer.  It reseeded itself and is adding beauty to this srping.











Daisies grow all over the backyard.  I leave some when I mow.

Every seamstress needs a pincushion flower.  When I looked at these this morning, they were laid over.  I think the chickens were in the middle!

I wish you could see the blossoms on the peas.  They are pink and magenta, very pretty.  We will be eating fresh peas in a couple of days.  Yeah!
The extra blocks in the picture are for two more raised beds with pine needle paths inbetween.
