|Our crocus tend to come in various shades of yellow and purple. There will be white ones as well.
|Crocus bloom next to Donkey tail spurge.
|Tiny, but brave are the first daffodils of 2014.
|Can you look at a daffodil and not crack a smile?
The first daffodils have made a hasty appearance. Yesterday it seems there were just a few green stalks, but now there is a little splash of color. These are miniatures, probably no more than six inches high. They are a hint of what is to come. Many more and larger daffodils will be bursting with blooms quite soon.
|Happy, happy, happy!
Perhaps no one is happier about the change of seasons than the girls in the chicken coop. Approaching the barn you can hear a chorus of contented clucking. I think they are singing for joy. They are showing their delight by amping up the egg production which was rather meager over the darker days of winter.
|The chickens seem to prefer to share. Most of the eggs are laid in one nest..
Let's not think about those days just yet. Today is a lovely day. Just ask the chickens.
|What do you think? Isn't it a lovely day?
