The new animals here are all getting big. I promised pictures of the kittens, so here they are. It seems from today’s pictures that they may have just opened up their eyes. There really are four of them.
The chicks have grown quite a bit.
It’s interesting to have a varied flock because some are taller than others, instead of them all being the same. It’ll be great when they start laying eggs because they are not all the same color. We’ve got some Eastereggers which means they lay either blue or green colored eggs.
The pups have grown too. I notice it most in Heidi because she was a bit young when we got her but I’m so glad we got her the same day as Finn because they play with each other and keep each other company.
The plants are growing too. My oregano looks ready to begin harvesting already.
Our smallest plum tree has quite a few plums on it.
We did find a peach or two on the planted peach tree. But we also saw this on it. Did this happen because it was wounded?
It was hard to see any peaches on our volunteer peach tree that’s in the chicken pen. It had a lot of blossoms when they were flowering, so I’m guessing it should have a lot of peaches. I’m hoping they will not have any disease this year. If not, I’ll be looking into how to heal the tree.
I’ll have to show pictures of the apple tree that looks more like an apple bush another time because we didn’t get pictures of it yet. I’m guessing it needs a good pruning.
Walkabout Flower Bouquet
I visited my parents yesterday. Don’t worry; we practiced social distancing. As hard as it was, we did not hug. We sat six feet apart on their back patio and had a nice visit. I got some sun–a slight sunburn. It was the first time I’d been away from the house other than a walk or two in about three weeks or more. I was just done and wanted to visit with my parents. I’m needing a visit with the rest of my family too. I’m hoping this Mother’s Day is going to be a wonderFULL celebration.
Even my grandson has grown a lot since I saw him in person, last. Can’t wait to hug them all!
I’m going to run for now. I hope you have a good weekend and that you are not losing track of your days as much as I am.
Until next time, God bless,
