I’ve been behind on my blog posts lately, but there is a good reason! I find displaying photos on Facebook is easier because I can include full albums instead of just one or two shots. Also, it gets a little repetitive doing both each time. I’ll keep updating my blog periodically, but if you wanted to see more please check out my Facebook page.

And for the full story behind this grape hyacinth field…check out the album and explanation here. :)

mockingbirds 2

Well the mockingbirds have all left the nest!  I feel a great sense of relief because it took lot of mental energy to stop myself from looking at them over and over.  I limited my peeks to 3, and got this photo the last time I looked on Saturday (zoom shot).

PS:  Really loving her reverse mohawk.

The other day my dad came over and helped me winterize the chicken coop.  When I say “help” I mean he worked on the chicken coop while I was inside baking him an apple pie.  My dad’s payment terms are usually restricted to baked goods, but this time I also threw in a dozen fresh eggs – the fruits of his labor. Thanks Dad! :)

I hope you have a great weekend.  Swing by the Brooklyn Flea if you’re in the area, I’ll be there selling some holiday stuff…
