Cheerful thoughts

With all the sadness lately I need something cheerful to think about and to post about.   Although I don't want to rush time, a fresh new year sounds good to me.  Maybe 2014 will be a better year for lots of us.

The Obedient plants are beginning to bloom...Flowers are cheerful!  With all that spring rain we had, it looked like these would be the prettiest ever...but then we had that dry spell... 



Fall colors...






Finally got around to picking that bouquet of country goldenrod...



One of the Araucana hens has started laying!! 






Chickens make me happy.  Many many years ago I remember going to my Grandma Comer's house.  Grandma died when I was young...maybe 10 years old.  Anyway, I remember being there once and there was an old Dominicker hen with a bunch of baby chicks in the yard.  She would puff up and cluck and all those chicks would disappear under her.  Mama would tell us to stay away from that old hen because she would flog us.  I didn't know exactly what "flog" meant but I stayed away!!  If mama said be afraid...I was afraid!

Thank you for looking in.  I hope to get back in the swing of things soon...that reminds me...I want to build that rope tree swing!!!   Coming soon!!

Love,
Henny Penny

  1. Your flowers with 'fall colours' look very pretty. I spy some healthy looking lettuce at the front of the pic, and some contented chickens scratching around in the background.

    1. Wean, actually that is Mustard you see at the front. It is growing good but what can I do with it?? Any ideas?? I found a pack of seeds and put a few in the herb garden. Can Mustard be eaten raw? Thanks!

  2. I think you can eat it in salad - but the best way is to sprout the seeds and eat them just as the first sprouts appear - there's more goodness in them at that stage.

    1. Hey Wean, glad to hear from you. I'm hearing people say they cannot leave a comment on my blog. Hope the problem corrects itself! I used to love to sprout seeds but haven't tried it in years. Thanks!
