Summer Days

I tried and tried to get a photo yesterday of these sunflowers. I just find they to make me so happy. No matter how I might be feeling as soon as I walk out the gate and see this bunch of sunflowers and the green leaves and the blue sky I am so happy.

I was able to get a photo yesterday of that silly hen who likes the porch loveseat to lay her eggs.

I let my chickens out in the yard so they can have a little me time. The group that goes out with me in the garden while I am watering the garden. There are a couple of hens that are from my first batch of hens. This hen is one of them. I guess being a older hen she has decided she needs more padding for her egg laying business. She didn't lay a egg by the way, she was just sitting here taking in the sights. I guess she thinks it is her special place.

I had to sneak around to take these pictures too. I was so afraid she was going to just take off so these were very fast photos. The chickens won't be having any me time today. I am a little fed up with them. Yesterday when it came time for them to go back to the coops. All of them had memory problems. None of them could remember where the coops were nor could they remember where the doors were located. I ran and  ran all over the yard. Back and forth. They had food and water and they didn't want that. I even tried bread which they love bread. Yesterday they would grab a piece and run back up to the house. So today, they are grounded. They will have no outside time.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I hope today is a beautiful day for you where ever you are and that what ever you do today the work of your hands will be blessed.

  5. I was thinking the same thing as Meg. I wonder how chickens keep cool enough on hot summer days.

    It looks as though the tin dog is guarding the hen on her cushion.

  9. ha,ha, your chickens acts like our cows. They never want to go where we want them to go, lol.
    I think that you've got a winner of a chicken picture. She sure love to sit where it's comfy. You may have to move that padded seat in the coops and get another one for you, lol.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  13. I like your sunflower photos - so wonderful that yellow against the blue sky. I think your chickens know a good thing when they see it and decided they don't want to be cooped up anymore! Funny, now I realize where that expression "cooped up" comes from.

  19. HI Kim, always enjoy your chicken stories, two weeks ago we had about five chicks run away into the woods, and only two came back, and like you we put them on restriction. I don't like to keep them fenced in, but dh says it's for their own good. I love sun flowers too, but have not had good luck this year due to the rain.
    Enjoy your day, I am trying to get back to blogging, just not really finding a whole lot of time, I finish blueberries today, and then apples and grapes. Don't you want to come and help me?~smile~
    Hugs,
    Sue
