I’ve missed sharing all of the beautiful flowers around our farm on Nature Fridays this spring/early summer! I’ve just been too busy, but I did have time to snap off a couple shots not too long ago.
Normally, I’m excited to share our usually prolific clematis bush. However, the chickens have taken over that spot underneath and right beside our front porch for their dust bathing, and the bush has taken it hard.
We’re going to try to move it to a different location and see if we can save it from being completely decimated! It’s just one of the things that happens when you have free-ranging birds, so we accept that.
I also wanted to share the pretty blooms on my sage plant, which is in my herb garden inside Luke’s fenced yard.
I think this is the first time I’ve had sage flower? I’m not exactly sure why it didn’t in the past, or why it all of the sudden decided to bloom this spring!
In exciting farm news, we have chicks hatching! So far we only have three, and none of the guinea fowl have hatched yet. I’m not sure why, but we are hoping they are just a little late. We’re going to be very disappointed if we don’t get any guineas, or only end up with 3 chicks.
These are the first two that arrived….
They were in temporary quarters until we could try putting them under our broody mama hen out in the coop (inside a dog crate). The photo below is #3, this one is still in the incubator drying off some.
By the time I got home from work on Thursday, this had happened (thanks to the Dadz)!
I’ll have some better photos and an update next week!
