The Back Yard in Early Spring

A lot has happened, but not much in the back yard. Rain and family activities have cut my gardening back a trifle. Then I looked up and saw spring everywhere.

Remember those sweet little chickens?

They've grown up a bit! The chook at the front is laying. Note her fully-developed comb and wattles. The one at the back has not come into lay yet.

Our guinea pigs have decided on a feral lifestyle. They have spent most of the winter outside and DO NOT want to be caught!

I finally pruned the quince.

And after having no tomatoes last summer, the plants have decided to bear through winter instead.

I'm like you, Chookie, just getting back into the garden after a long winter layoff. Our wattle (a groundcover Cootamundra) is blooming its head off now, too.

Your chickens are all grown up. You've done a great job of taking good care of them. Your garden will bloom tremendously without you knowing. You'd just be surprise. Thanks for sharing. RTO training & consulting
