Spring

As Lynn says, "where do the days go"!!!   I actually hear women say they never want to retire because they couldn't stand being home every day with nothing to do!!!  There is not enough hours in the day for me to do all the things I WANT to do!  I can spend a day rearranging pots around my little greenhouse.  I still have not planted the potatoes and onions, and it may now be too late in the season.  After getting a row ready, we had a heavy rain.  Oh well, it's fun to keep trying!

Out early this morning, opening the chicken house door and throwing out the scratch feed, I couldn't help but notice how fresh and beautiful everything looks...It really is spring, finally.  The Dogwoods are beginning to open...


Oh, and this moth I spotted near the kitchen window this morning.  Green  outlined in purple!  Lynn could probably give us all the info on this beautiful moth...


One more picture, this sweet smelling "Chocolate vine".   Lynn had one in her old garden...


Need to get busy.  Poppy has gone turkey hunting this morning.  Today is the first day of turkey season in our area. 

Hope you all have a beautiful day!!!

Love,
Henny Penny

  1. Dear Henny,

    Wow! That moth looks like a leaf! God is amazing in His creations.

    Chocolate vine.....looks just right over an arbor.

    I hope Poppy got a turkey. We have a flock of wild turkeys that assemble themselves down by the lights. They look like a greeting committee. :)

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Hey Jen,

      I always appreciate your comments. Poppy didn't get a turkey this time. The last couple of years he killed one on opening day. Thats funny about your flock of turkeys!!

      Love,

  2. Oh Mama, that's a luna moth, I think! It's gorgeous!! I am not sure I have ever seen one in real life. I miss my chocolate vine. I want to get one for my new arbor -- when the arbor goes up, that is. Yours looks wonderful!

    Love you!!

  3. Wow. That is an awesome moth! I don't normally think of moths as being beautiful but that one certainly is.
