Lucy's birthday is coming up on March 3rd. She'll be 6. Then there's Avery's third in May. Both spring babies. What is it about new life and Spring? It's like Sprite and Sushi--they just go together!
By afternoon, I am able to open windows and doors. We've had a merciful February, launching us up into the 60s and 70s this past week. During one of our afternoon air-outs a little honeybee found its way into the dining room. It made my heart jump a bit, because someday she will have a hive to work in on site (not in the dining room). But, we've decided to wait until next year--or actually the end of this. We should have had our bees ordered by November or December and our hives installed, painted and ready to accept the queen and her workers by... well, right about now!! I did some bee reading on our drive down to Disney and discovered that a poorly timed hive can result in death of the entire group. I can't have that many deaths on my conscience. In the meantime, we are going to plant some honeybee-friendly flowering plants and do this right.
Here is Gloria (second from front) and her other unnamed girlfriends. We are about to ruffle their feathers this Wednesday. We are bringing in some pullets. Hopefully Barred Rock and Ameraucana.
Is there anything better than a chick in Spring? Okay, maybe an Avery or a Lucy in Spring. But, we already have one of each of those!
