Chickens and flowers on a day in June

Hens and chicks. Really.

Hasta, dandelion and the other I cannot remember its name. It will come to me.

As kids, we used to chase others with these…

As you may notice, I live in a rocky area and must use a lot of mulch and work with the soil here.  A small rock garden returned after that cold, cold winter and always the dandelions prevail to help feed the bees!

Breakfast of champion egg layers.

The chicks had a quiet night.  I gave them a cardboard box to sleep and hide in while they spend time in the dog kennel in the downstairs bath.  I have a barn but it is too early to be out without a lamp, and soon they have a small chicken house to be in.  That will be a photo event.

I am fortunate to have found someone who will bring in their bush hog and a tractor and we are just going to clear up a little around the deck area here.  A raised bed will produce some vegetables that no doubt will again entice the deer but I have some fencing that may help.  I am willing to share a little but not all of it.

Time to start up the mower.  A really nice, clear morning in the Catskills.  Photos and notes by Wanda Callagy
