You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.

Catching Up Already


So last year I thought it would be really funny to put this rubber snake on a stone in my front garden. How funny when I scare someone, haha! Of course, I grabbed it while weeding, jumped a mile and screamed bloody murder. It was rubber snake karma, I tell you!

I've been doing lots of weeding and cleaning up. I'm ready for planting and plant relocation.

I placed orders at Bluestone Perennials and Wayside Gardens this week.

From Bluestone:
BRUNNERA Jack Frost
DIGITALIS Obscura
DIGITALIS purpurea Apricot Beauty
DIGITALIS Hyacinth Hybrids
CAMPANULA Kent Belle
ECHINACEA BIG SKY™ SERIES Summer Sky

Ilex Southern Gentleman (Male Pollinator)
Epimedium 'Pink Elf' PP#17,228
Hosta 'Aureonebulosa'

Some happy chicken photos.

That is just what would happen to me! And then I would be afraid I had killed it because it wasn't moving.

CatHerder, I feel better that I'm not alone in my rubber snake trauma! And I love my chickens so much. I have wanted chickens all my life, really and finally got them last summer.

catquiet, it definitely felt like karma for wanting to scare someone else with it!
