Spring is here!

We’ve had a cool spring so far. Lots of cool, rainy days that made all the grass and weeds grow, but were miserable days for being outside in the yard.  The past week or so, it’s warmed up and I’ve spread mulch and weeded most of the flower and vegetable beds.

Today, it was 89 degrees! Almost TOO hot!  (I know, I know, picky, picky)  But I got outside and spent time in the yard today.  I found a Cardinal’s nest in one of our camelias this week:

Steve helped out a bit. There’s a piece of land across the street from us that belongs to the county. They do not maintain it, so we try to. The weeds got WAY out of control over there this spring.  Steve helped me out by getting the thistles out.

The dogs lent moral support!

And, finally, a picture of the baby chicks. They are getting quite large, probably about 7 weeks or so. I’m thinking they are all hens, but will continue to wait and “listen” (roosters crow between 4 and 6 months).
