Guess who came out, with level in hand, to check out the new lot??? That's right. Dear, sweet Poppy!!
I did get a brief lecture about being sure this is where I want the lot!!! "Mel, you need to put some thought into these things...look at the time and work we put into building that other lot...now it's got to be torn down!!" I said, "I know, and I promise not to do this again if you'll just help me get going here with these heavy boards!!!" We got this much done!!
Not fancy, but it will work!
The next step is putting up new chicken wire. Then Poppy said he would help me with the tin roof.
This dead tree was standing in our way. We finally got it to fall...The chickens had a feast while we worked!!
Spring is right around the corner. This Spirea (button bush), (a sprout from my sister's yard), is almost in full bloom!! The temperature is supposed to drop into the low 20's tonight though, with another full week of cold weather predicted!!!
Love, Henny Penny
