Full swing

So much to share, so little time seems to be the mantra these days (for me at least)! We are planting flowers every weekend and they seem to be growing, along with the weeds! The coming week's forecast promises to be pure bliss - 80's in the daytime, 50/60's at night. The pool will be open in time for mother's day weekend and I think some of the peonies will be blooming by then too.  

  Right now there are several stunning lilacs in full glory - The smell is intoxicating and I can't help but send every visitor to the farm away with an armful.

  Last week the tulips peaked and the week before, all of the fruit trees were in full bloom...

Mom calls all the hens 'Gertrude' - We tried to come up with a bunch of girl names that start with G and welcome your suggestions! They are growing like weeds (pretty much the story about everything around here!!)

 This is Gimmick -- Our almost famous half blind "bonus chick" - You might recall this was the cute yellow chick they sent us 11 weeks ago (back in February 2015...)
